Intermediate Portfolio Management: Principles of Profitability — Virtual (formerly Card Profitability)

    Learn what it takes to run a profitable payments business. Join payments expert Peter Hall for a four-day virtual course (three hours per day) focused on growing profitability through strategies designed for issuers and acquirers.  

    You’ll begin by examining the wider economic environment, exploring the value of payments to issuing and acquiring organizations and reviewing the founding principles of profitability. You’ll also examine the key cost and revenue drivers for your primary products, where you’ll receive not only the breakdown of numbers but also the tactical perspective, including marketing examples at work.   

    You’ll then take a more granular approach, looking at ways to improve portfolio performance by applying resources more selectively, testing pricing strategies, understanding market factors and responding to the margin squeeze than can follow regulation.  

    After completing this course, you’ll return to your role with a practical understanding of how to make your existing business more profitable by evaluating information, applying customer knowledge and implementing variable pricing within a "test and learn" discipline.
