Dustin Sedgwick: “We can’t wait to continue exploring new ways to bring this exciting collaboration to life.”

Exploring the future of payments and the power of digitalisation, Payments Unbound brings together WIRED’s position as a leading editorial authority on trends with a range of expert voices from J.P. Morgan and its clients like Chevron and Meta.

The result is, says WIRED, a striking and informative magazine that deep dives into the ways in which this new digital era surrounding finance is impacting businesses, their consumers and the very nature of currency. Aimed at professionals across industry, this new magazine will help them navigate this fast changing world and prepare for the future.

Emma Cowdray, Head of Strategic Projects at WIRED Consulting, said: “In launching this project, we wanted to provide tech curious professionals and thought leaders with digestible insights and foresight in an impactful and engaging way. Working with J.P. Morgan Payments has allowed us to deep dive into the fast-changing and fascinating world of payments and harness WIRED’s strengths as a demonstrated authority on innovation with finger-on-the-pulse future forecasting.”

Payments Unbound was first distributed in October at Money 20/20 in Las Vegas and Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) 2022 in Philadelphia.

Alongside a physical magazine, the publication is also available digitally on J.P and an exclusive immersive version of the WIRED feature can be found on

Dustin Sedgwick, J.P. Morgan Payments CMO: “WIRED’s leading editorial voice and authority on innovation is a perfect match to what we at J.P. Morgan Payments bring as a trusted-innovator and thought leader to our clients and the industry. Bringing these teams together has resulted in a truly engaging magazine that we see as a guide to our clients and the broader industry wanting to understand the future of payments as it unfolds. We can’t wait to continue exploring new ways to bring this exciting collaboration to life.”

The first volume of Payments Unbound represents a longer term collaboration between WIRED and J.P. Morgan, brought together by WIRED Consulting - a part of WIRED that brings WIRED’s knowledge, expertise and network to brands and organisations.

With partnerships like these, say the publishers, WIRED Consulting seeks to help educate and inspire business growth through a range of services including briefings and workshops, roundtable discussions, strategic reports and thought-leading showcase events.

Payments Unbound includes features on digital cash, how digital wallets are driving the connected-car economy and an interview with Meta’s head of commerce and financial technologies Stephane Kasriel.
