Future developments

Every year, Worldpay from FIS invests heavily in developing and launching modern, sophisticated technology platforms and enhanced distribution capabilities for our customers. Our goal is to stay at the forefront of the payments market, and to offer our customers new payment methods and innovations as they appear. In 2019, we were the only company to invest USD 5 million in innovation and R&D. Our merger with Vantiv and acquisition by FIS has given us significant breadth and stability and Worldpay already offers more domestic acquiring than anyone else. Most recently in APAC, we are now the only international acquirer to offer JCB domestic processing in Japan. We established local acquiring capability in Australia and New Zealand in 2019, and in 2020 became a member of EFTPOS in Australia. 2020 was a pivotal year as we grew our local payment capabilities across LATAM and the EMEA as we are rapidly accelerating our geo-expansion program. We continue to heavily invest in new market entry, targeting 20 new local acquiring markets in the next three years, including expanding our domestic capabilities to the following countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Russia, Chile, Peru, Israel, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and UAE.
