Banker Who Quit for Her Kid Builds Empire of 110,000 Consultants

(Bloomberg) — Eiko Hashiba left Goldman Sachs Group Inc. in Tokyo in 2002 to give birth to a child at 23.

Having to quit to look after her baby left her wondering why there weren’t more flexible ways for women to keep working in Japan, instead of leaving the workforce after having children.

Ten years later, that question was still on her mind when she co-founded VisasQ Inc., which provides expert advice and consulting services not unlike those of McKinsey & Co. The difference? Its advisers don’t work in-house: they’re outside consultants.

“I had my baby at an early stage in my career and I wanted some kind of work I could continue no matter what,” Hashiba, VisasQ’s chief executive officer, said in an interview. VisasQ is “a service that boosts a person’s ability to work.”

VisasQ’s stock has risen 94% since listing on the Tokyo Stock Exchange

Mastercard builds platform to pilot central bank digital currencies

LONDON (Reuters) – Mastercard MA.N is creating a platform to help central banks “virtually” test how digital currencies could be developed and used, the payments company said on Wednesday.

Facebook’s FB.N Libra multi-currency backed stablecoin proposal prompted central banks to look at whether they could launch digital versions of their currencies.

“This new platform supports central banks as they make decisions now and in the future about the path forward for local and regional economies,” said Raj Dhamodharan, executive vice president for digital asset and blockchain products at Mastercard said in a statement.

The platform enables the simulation of issuance, distribution and exchange of central bank digital currencies between banks, financial service providers and consumers, Mastercard said.

Controlled regulatory environments are already being used by start-ups to test new payments services from fintech companies.

Central banks are still in the early stages of looking at potential digital currencies, with the

Columbus teen builds sneaker restoration business amid pandemic – News – The Columbus Dispatch

Antonio Davis, like so many teens, spent the early weeks of the pandemic unsure of what to do with himself. Then he switched off the television and started a business.

Laurise Johnson did the math. As an education specialist at an East Side after-school program, she’s all about the math.

Binge-watching 16 seasons of “Grey’s Anatomy” adds up to about 60 days of television, Johnson discovered. Quite a feat, even for a bored teenager.

Johnson suppressed the urge to laugh a little. If it was true – and Antonio Davis really had devoted that much of this spring’s COVID-19 shutdown to his favorite show – then Antonio’s mom, Misha McNeil, was right: Something had to give.

Mastercard builds out consumer-centric buy now, pay later solutions

  • Mastercard partnered with payment processor TSYS to offer issuer-based installment options to cardholders. 
  • With this move, Mastercard joins rival PayPal in attempting to use their established payments businesses to find success in the space.

The card network has partnered with payment processor TSYS to offer issuer-based installment options to cardholders. These offerings include letting consumers decide to spread payments out before they make them, to receive notifications about installment options for their card while they shop, and to turn purchases into installment payments after a purchase was already made.

Mastercard Switched Transactions Annual Growth

Mastercard teams up with TSYS on installment options.

Business Insider Intelligence

Mastercard’s features differ from merchant-focused offerings from buy now, pay later (BNPL) leaders like Afterpay and Klarna, and could be appealing since they enable consumers to access installments via their Mastercard and issuing bank, rather than a new service.

The card network adds these consumer-focused installment solutions to its growing
