The payment will be made with 1.14mln shares at a price of 43.5p each.

FairFX said its acquisition of Q Money and its associated e-money licence back in 2017 had been “an important milestone” in the evolution of the group, with the licence underpinning its digital banking products as well as its direct membership of Mastercard to issue its own bank cards.

In late-afternoon trading on Thursday, FairFX shares were up 0.8% at 120p.
