I’ve decided to cover a little more on this blog about the world of the world of mystery that is retail banking and global electronic payments. It’s a subject, by accident of history, that I am steeped in. (Disclaimer, I’m not unbiassed. I still actively consult in this space so there some topics I’ll need to skate around for confidentiality reasons, some players I may always play with as they could be paying my rent in the present/future. And lastly some services out there I’ll always have a soft spot for (hint: Interac Email Money Transfers) as I may have once, er, invented them.

So without further ado, your quick, insider, personal-banking tip of the day… enjoy!
