Company positioned to enter new regions, expand existing markets and offer more innovative technology.

Emergent Payments, the top payments provider for digital merchants in high-growth markets, today announced it is now part of Emergent Technology Holdings.

The move adds deep corporate expertise to the company’s local payments solution, as Emergent continues to grow its business worldwide.

“I’m excited about the capabilities that our combined team brings together,” said Mitch Davis, Emergent Technology Chief Commercial Officer. “We are well placed to deliver outstanding results. Emergent is the clear choice and partner for business expansion into emerging markets.”

Offering an extensive range of payment methods in over 60 high-growth markets, Emergent Payments enables some of the world’s largest digital merchants to access consumers previously unreachable.

The additional expertise from Emergent Technology™ will see the company extend its payments footprint, broaden its client services and develop a digital currency.

“This is a huge benefit for our merchants looking to stay ahead of emerging market trends,” said Davis. “We are expecting 2018 to be a big year for frontier markets, like Africa and the Middle East. We will be growing our presence there and launching some really cutting-edge technology to drive optimization.”

Emergent Technology will be unveiling a blockchain-based platform – the Responsible Gold™ supply chain – and a gold-backed digital token – G-Coin™ – later this year.

It is the first solution to automate the tracking of conflict-free gold, enabling a liquid gold trading market and boosting cross-border payments efficiency.

“These markets are ripe for disruption and we are ready to lead the charge by bringing our skill, infrastructure and strategic partnerships under one roof,” said Davis.
