Ant Financial is not looking to 'buy' technology, says executive

Expressing enthusiasm for the technology that has been developed by Ant Financial, Feagin said the company remains “very confident” of its ability to innovate.

“We’re not so much really even looking to go around the world and try to buy technology,” he added.

Asked about the potential impact of rising global trade tensions on Ant Financial’s partnerships with local companies, Feagin said the company remains “very excited” about the model and will continue to follow it in a number of different markets.

While Ant Financial provides the technology and the know-how to partners, they’re responsible for thinking about local consumers' needs and how products and services can be rolled out within those markets, he said.

“That’s how you best understand the local consumers, that’s how you can best protect their data, store data and things like that locally,” he added.

Looking ahead, Feagin said Ant Financial’s focus for now is to build upon its existing nine relationships with local partners and expanding its customer base among them, with the possibility of “selectively” adding new allies in the future.

Has anyone had a phone call from a group called Affiliated Financial Services?

They claim to be able to reduce my interest rate on my credit card by a one time payment of $995. It sounds like fraud to me, but I need a little bit of guidance. Help?
