On some level it’s hard to fathom that there is room in the market for so many specialized cross-border payments companies. Certainly some will fail and others will be bought out and their technology incorporated into bigger platforms. On another level, it makes perfect sense that these more specialized companies are present precisely because they are better at narrowly focused solutions. Not every payment is like every other payment.
