Pillers of payments
An interview with Harold Montgomery

By Ken Musante

Harold Montgomery is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Calpian Inc., a public company that gives ISOs cash in exchange for their residual portfolios. Calpian is traded via the OTC Bulletin Board under the symbol CLPI.OB.

I have had a chance to listen in on several of Montgomery's ISO presentations, and I remain impressed by his understanding of how to value certain aspects of a processor's contract.

One of the most important aspects with any business is having some sort of exit strategy. By considering that exit strategy upfront, you best position yourself for whatever the future holds.

I believe Montgomery is one of the few individuals who can advise payment professionals, at the outset, how to structure their businesses and to know what aspects of a processing contract are most important and which ones shouldn't be pressed as vigorously.
