Friday boss: MasterCard's Marion King

This week's Friday Boss is Marion King, president of MasterCard UK and Ireland.

Ms King explained to Today business presenter Simon Jack that "MasterCard is a technology company."

"We are investing a huge amount in innovation," she added.

She highlighted the common misunderstanding that MasterCard is a lender of money: "We do not issue cards and we do not issue money."

She went on to outline where the market for electronic payment will be heading in the near future.
