Various strategic contract wins hold future pledge for Fiserv. The company confirmed winning a bunch of contracts from various financial institutions during 2012. Recently, the company entered into a multi-year contract with Trustmark National Bank, a unit of Trustmark Corporation. With the agreement, the bank has extended its long-term association with Fiserv.
However, the company's financial segment faces a huge competition from various big companies including Mastercard Incorporated (MA) and Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. (FIS).
