After evaluating lots of candidates, burning the midnight oil, I’m proud to publish, what I think is the world’s first Periodic Table of Remittances (Money Transfer). The table provides a glance…
A couple of years ago, I answered a question on Quora. The question states How would money transferring between countries look in five years? I thought it would be a good exercise…
I’ve never given a recommendation after one conversation but I feel it’s appropriate in this situation.
I’m not here to talk about Faisal’s professional experience, I’d like to recommend him as a person. The amount of respect and courtesy he displayed to me was beyond expectation. Between 3 emails and 15 minutes of talking, he also displayed the following valuable traits: responsive with communications, logically perceptive on the value of my proposition and reasonable in considering how my idea might impact the other areas of his professional life.
While he may not see an immediate vision for an idea, that doesn’t mean he won’t hear it out, ask intelligent questions and work forward from there.
It’s for these reasons, and many more yet to be discovered, that I recommend working with and getting to know Faisal.
Talking to Faisal was absolutely one of the best decisions I made in regards to my payments business. He clearly and completely unraveled the mythical beast that is “the payments industry” for me. I would recommend you setup a call right now if you’re even slightly interested in learning about the payments industry. He is super knowledgeable about it all.
As a founder of an early stage cryptocurrency technology company I found Faisal’s advice invaluable in navigating the intricacies of financial regulation. In addition, his ability to open doors is extraordinary and his willingness to do so is refreshing. He is a rare and valuable resource spanning the gap between revolutionary fintech companies and the global financial industry.
I might be biased towards my recommendation for Faisal because I follow his blogs a lot. When it comes to payments, Fintech, bitcoins & compliance, he is my go-to guy. From regulations to business modeling, he covers it all in simple plain language.
