Each year the Payments Power 10 are nominated and voted for by their industry peers.

These payment industry leaders are recognised for their on-going commitment to pushing boundaries in the payments sector, with clear examples of specific activity in the last 12 months. They can also be new players who, in the last year, have shaken up the payments sector and introduced game-changing products or services to the market. The 2021 winners were announced live at the Payments Leaders' Summit on 5-6 October 2021.
