My year as Vice-Chairman at Asset | IB&M

It is November, which means that for the past 9 months already I have had the amazing opportunity to be the vice-chairman of Asset | International Business & Management. In this blogpost, I am very happy to tell you more about what has made this a great experience for me so far!

In Sweden, about 80 percent of the transactions are made with credit cards, mobile phones or internet banking. One of the causes for this high percentage is the app Swish. This is a mobile app, developed by Swedish and Danish banks, which promotes a cashless system. It is comparable to the ‘contactloos betalen’ (which is holding your credit card next to a scanner to make a purchase) in the Netherlands. Because these new systems offer more security and convenience, cash is becoming more and more unpopular in Sweden. Economics even say that Sweden might become the first cashless society within the next decade. However, this trend towards a cashless society does not come without problems. In this article we will explore the several pro’s and con’s of a cashless society.Kroon
