PayPal and Klarna are among the companies best positioned to take advantage of future Covid-19 disruption in the cards & payments industry, our analysis shows.

The assessment comes from GlobalData’s Thematic Research ecosystem, which ranks companies on a scale of one to five based on their likelihood to tackle challenges like Covid-19 and emerge as long-term winners of the cards & payments sector.

According to our analysis, PayPal, Klarna and Stripe are the companies best positioned to benefit from investments in Covid-19, all of them recording scores of five out of five in GlobalData’s Payments Thematic Scorecard.

The table below shows how GlobalData analysts scored the biggest companies in the cards & payments industry on their Covid-19 performance.

The final column in the table represents the overall score given to that company when it comes to their current Covid-19 position relative to their peers. A score of five indicates that a company is a dominant player in this space, while companies that score less than three are vulnerable to being left behind. These can be read fairly straightforwardly.
