We love the cards and payments business at Lafferty Group — and have created a powerful, global interactive research database across more than 70 countries to help clients to manage their cards businesses. Appropriately, it is called World Cards Intelligence (WCI).

With WCI, you can buy or subscribe to any of the following:

  • The entire global database
  • Any combination of country reports
  • Any combination of country report modules — there are 12 in all
  • Any of our data-rich charts or tables

These services are available either via our interactive online research database or as PDF reports. We also publish a series of regional research reports in areas such as merchant services, retail banking and credit card profitability. In addition, we can provide bespoke research studies in any of the above sectors for any combination of countries.

We are proud to report that Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB, Discover, Citibank, UnionPay International and leading issuers and acquirers have been subscribers for years.

To find out more about WCI, you can contact Caroline Hastings on the below details, no commitment necessary:
