As CSI’s president and CEO, I consider CSI’s membership and participation in AFT an important endeavor for our executives, for many reasons. It allows us to connect with key leaders in financial technology, exchange ideas and develop thought leadership, and contribute to the success of the fintech ecosystem, which includes our customers. The relationships we cultivate through AFT mutually benefit CSI and the industry we serve. CSI was there at the beginning of AFT, and we will be here to support the organization well into the future.
