Westminster Business Forum

The future for payments regulation in the UK - competition, innovation and end-user priorities

Morning, Thursday, 28th June 2018

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will consider the future for payments policy and regulation in the UK.


The discussion is timed to follow the creation of the New Payment Services Operator - which has been set up to develop increased capability and capacity across retail payment systems - and will bring out latest thinking around the future resilience of payments infrastructure, as well as its role in developing competition and innovation across the sector.


Delegates will also consider how latest innovation and emerging technologies are impacting on market competition and end-users, particularly in terms of how stakeholders are working to improve consumer engagement and address security concerns around the recent implementation of PSD2 and open banking, and latest initiatives being taken forward to tackle current trends in payments fraud, such as push-payment scams.  


Sessions are expected to bring together senior government officials and regulators with representatives from across the payments supply chain - including payments system operators, banks, building societies, PayTechs and other service payment providers - alongside academics, commentators, consumer groups, lawyers, and reporters from the national and trade media.
