SINGAPORE -- Amsterdam-based payment company Adyen aims to expand its footprint in Asia, with plans to increase its head count -- from software engineers to salespeople -- as well to secure the necessary financial licenses, according to Chief Operating Officer Kamran Zaki, as the company seeks to diversify its revenue in the world's fastest-growing region.

"Over the years, we've added so many markets with local teams. Asia is and will continue to be a substantial investment for us," Zaki told Nikkei Asia in a recent interview. Globally, he noted that transactions "are normalizing a bit, but we're still growing extremely fast."
