The future of payments is frictionless—now more than ever
A McKinsey & Company conversation with Amrita Ahuja, CFO of Square
Cash is king when it comes to maintaining corporate liquidity. It is in a somewhat less prestigious position when it comes to fulfilling consumer-to-business transactions. The onset of the COVID-19 crisis and ongoing fears of infection have prompted consumers and businesses to rely more on digital and contactless payment options when buying and selling goods and services.
McKinsey’s Pooja Kumar and Roberta Fusaro recently sat down with Amrita Ahuja, the CFO of Square, a global provider of point-of-sale terminals and auxiliary equipment to small and medium-size businesses, to reflect on the changing market for payments software, hardware, and services. In this edited conversation, Ahuja explains how Square has supported small and medium-size companies during the crisis, describes new technologies that might affect the global payments industry, and shares her insights on what it means to be a CFO in the midst of a pandemic.
