Septembers Insights Interview with Rachelle St. Ledger, CEO of EML Australia

Share This Interview

Our VIP guest for this month’s Insights Interview is Rachelle St Ledger, CEO of EML Australia.

Rachelle is a no-nonsense, strong-minded people leader. With experience in the European and Australian markets, Rachelle talks about how the current macro-economic situation is positively and negatively impacting the payments sector and the pressures fintechs are facing.

The EML CEO believes the digital transformation trend will not be stalled by inflation or a recession. She notes that Australia is tipped to move away from cash by 2025, because there has been a 40% drop in cash payments between March and May 2022, while digital payments have risen by 41% during the same period. As such, Rachelle points out that companies should be watching payment trends in Australia, because the country’s economy allows it to move fast and be an early adopter of new payment methods.

Tony and Rachelle discuss a range of topics, including the economic factors impacting the industry, EML’s approach to the three areas of GPR, the growing influence of digital and borderless payments, the right kind of risk framework to prevent authorised push payment fraud and the government’s role in educating consumers.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
