The Key Trends Changing Payments in 2022
Learn how embedded payments, digital currencies and technology to tackle cyberattacks are changing the payments landscape. Watch Lia Cao, Head of Payment Solutions at J.P. Morgan, discuss the top emerging trends for the payments industry in 2022.

[UPBEAT MUSIC]

Lia: I look back, 2021 was about resetting and refocusing. 2022 is really about sustainable growth powered by technology. Specifically for payments, I think there are really three trends that are shaping the payments landscape. The first is about digital as embedded in the organiz-- every organization’s DNA, especially for technology, media, and communication companies. The second trend we’re seeing is the growth of connected commerce, examples being super apps, platforms. 6 of the top 10 largest companies by market cap in the world are platform companies. The last trend is about the role of payments. Payments is no longer a means to an end, but a key enabler to drive commerce growth. The B2B companies want to provide the same experience to their customers just like we as consumers receive everyday. That means real time experience, that means flexibility and optionality, and that means the holistic data and insights on your end customers.

As global payments volume increases, we’ve certainly seen the increase in cyber attacks and fraudster activities. For example, last year in Q3 2021, we’ve seen the phishing attacks double since January 2020. So from the J.P. Morgan side, we see the mitigation of cyber attacks and fraudulent activities in four pillars. They are trust, speed, breath, and efficiency. From the pandemic perspective, that has greatly accelerated the journey to e-commerce and to digital.

A lot of companies have seen a huge demand and proliferation of payment methods such as buy now, pay later and digital wallets. From the geo-political perspective, due to the huge disruption and uncertainty across the world, a lot of companies feel the urgent need to review their supply chain resiliency and find ways to support their priority suppliers through various payment solutions.

The digital currencies are still in their nascent stage. We do see an acceleration of consumers getting more comfortable with cryptocurrencies and we see governments exploring various use cases with CBDCs. At J.P. Morgan Payments, we are investing a lot in the blockchain space and exploring tangible use cases to help our clients move money across border.

Who Will Take Market Share in Payments?
Will the new fintech payment disruptors take market share from the legacy providers? Watch Tien-Tsin Huang, Senior Analyst of U.S. Payments, Processing and IT Services Research at J.P. Morgan, discuss which firms can win on price and scale.

[UPBEAT MUSIC]

Tien: Two big themes in payments that we’re observing right now, number one: software has taken over payments; and number two: everyone wants to bank their users. The pandemic really pulled forward a lot of growth, probably two to three years worth of penetration was achieved with cash going away and more payments going on, electronic forms of payment. So that puts more pressure on the companies to innovate and grow above market.

We’ve seen a lot of companies go to market, leading with software, and then embedding payments inside. And it’s putting a lot of pressure on the traditional players and also some pressure on the traditional banks. More and more companies looking to utilize software to run their business better and to engage with customers better. If you’re a retailer, there’s a huge opportunity to monetize your users that trust you by providing some banking services. So there’s a lot of opportunity to, of course, start with payments or start with a core service, but wrap a lot of services around that.

Probably the biggest debate in payments right now is the modern versus legacy debate, especially after a series of IPOs that we’ve seen in the last two years, more than we’ve done in the last decade. And they’ve created this narrative of disruption and competition in banking. And it starts with their advantages around customer acquisition, both on the merchant side as well as on the consumer side. And so we’ve created this wedge, like I said, between the modern and the legacy providers and with more consumers and more retailers valuing tech, it does feel like the tech companies are getting advantage against the legacy providers.

Longer term, our view is pretty simple: we think you’ll have a group of very large tech-first companies, digital-first companies that will have an advantage from a scale standpoint. And then you’ll still have some legacy providers, whether it be banks or large processors that can win on the wholesale side and win on price, right, and win on scale. END

Top Content Will Win Consumers
Fred Turpin, Global Head of Media & Communications Investment Banking at J.P. Morgan, talks about the key trends driving the sector and the future of network creation, media consumption and communications infrastructure.

[UPBEAT MUSIC]

Fred: Without question, this is the most dynamic time in the media communication sector that I can remember in my 30-year career. If you had rolled the clock back five or six years ago, I think most people would have described these businesses as being relatively mature, very cashflow stable, very well consolidated. It couldn’t be any more different today.

With the advent of the total change in network designs, the rearchitecting of the data communications infrastructure in the United States and globally, the advent of streaming, content services, and the competition between historically internet media companies and traditional media companies. But the stakes are really high and the future’s gonna be very different than the past. I think it’s made companies and boards of directors much more open minded to strategical transformational transactions. We’re seeing boards and CEOs much more focused today how they put their company in the best position for the next 5 or 10 years than for the next quarter.

Most of the transactions that we’ve been involved in have been about scale, have been about better access to customers, lower costs, and more staying power. One of the good things about out business is that we can execute at a fantastic level for clients even in a difficult type of market environment that we’re currently experiencing. And we had a unique opportunity earlier this year to really demonstrate that when we led the $30 billion Triple B- financing for Discovery Warner to complete the merger from AT&T’s spinoff of their Warner Media business.

So as I look at the next five years, I really do think that the major growth sectors at a high level are going to continue to be broadband and data infrastructure deployment. And as the networks continue to improve, you’ll be able to watch that anywhere, all the time. It won’t matter how much video throughput there is. And we may be able to drive your car for you through Midtown Manhattan before it’s all over. If you look at the total dollars that are being spent to produce some of the most fantastic video and movie programming that we’ve ever had in our lifetime, I don’t know if it’s sustainable. But no one wants to be left behind right now. And I really do think there will be increasing emphasis on location-based and shared experience types of entertainment.

Streaming has sort of sucked all of the action out of the room for the last two years with COVID and everything else. But I really do think that people wanna be back at the ball park, wanna be back at the concert hall. And I think the talent and the creative arts that we were so used to five years ago in this country, I think that’s going to be back in a big way.

What’s Ahead For Technology Investment Banking
In the pandemic’s post-correction period, Madhu Namburi, Head of Technology Investment Banking at J.P. Morgan, discusses the new focus for investors, the outlook for M&A activity and how the IPO market will take shape following heightened volatility.

[UPBEAT MUSIC]

Madhu: Technology is gonna be an absolutely dynamic sector no matter what. How we live today has become even more reliant on technology. That’s gonna only continue to accelerate. Now we’re entering into the post- I call it “correction” era, right? We’re not completely out of the woods with COVID. The market went through a major correction.

We analyze about 500 companies in tech space. Those stocks are down anywhere between 45 – 50 percent, Companies that actuarily make profits, albeit lower growth, those stocks are down only 15-ish percent, even in this correction. What has shifted fundamentally is the focus on path to profitability. The only thing investors cared for the last few years, at least for the last 2/3 years, was growth, growth, growth. In this market, we’re finding investors care for companies that are profitable while albeit at a modest growth. We think 2022 and actually 2023 is going to be a very strong year for technology M&A.

If I think about software, fintech, internet companies, we are now back to valuations levels in the 2017-2018 timeframe. The valuations were too high last year for companies, normal traditional M&A aquieters to go pursue aggressive M&A. So none of the fundamentals have changed. And it’s going to continue. The vast majority of the M&A we would expect to come from the public markets, or private companies that are quite profitable. I think once they see the volatility has subsided, we do expect the IPOs to open up. We do expect second half of this year to have decent tech IPOs. However, the quality of companies that will be likely going to go public would have a characteristic that represents a healthy balance of growth and profitability.

So if I think about 10 years from now, we have now 5 of the largest companies in the world that are tech companies. I would expect there will be whole new set of companies who would be adding to that basket. This rate of value creation is going to only continue.
