Headquartered in the US state of New York, Mastercard is a payments and technology company connecting consumers, financial institutions, merchants and governments in approximately 210 countries and territories. As of October 2020, Mastercard reported net quarterly income of USD 1.5 billion on total assets of USD 32 billion.
