Instant Payments & Europe: The reason why.

Is Europe ready for Real-time / instant Payments? What can we learn from the UK, USA and Singapore (Fast)? We get your burning questions answered in this expert panel discussion.

What are the key challenges we face and how will this evolve in the next 5 years? This panel of top experts will discuss the barriers and opportunities and create the best insight on this crucial next step development for the European payment landscape.
Point for discussion are amongst others:

  • Interoperability (multiple solutions across the zone)
  • External convergence (what happens with SEPA credit transfer volumes)
  • Access: new infrastructure
  • Banks: the effort to connect and making it easier
  • real-time creating new propositions (overlay services / on-top development / innovations
