The September 2016 newsletter is now online.
This new edition focuses on the latest payment trends in Europe and beyond and provides updates on the European regulatory agenda.
The newsletter welcomes external contributions from:
- Fabrice Denèle, from BPCE Group, about what options banks have to future proof their businesses in light of the emergence of innovative fintech start-ups and challenger brands.
- Pat Adams, from the Southern African Development Community Banking Association, about payment harmonisation in the region and a new cross border payment platform enabling real-time credit transfers in South African Rand across the area.
- Piet Mallekoote, from the Dutch Payments Association, who shares his insights on the key characteristics of the Dutch payment landscape. In addition, our infographic shows why the Netherlands is one of the most innovative European countries when it comes to payments.
- Michael Lyons, Oliver Pegden, and Louise Baxter from Clifford Chance, who provide a summary of the key elements that the payment industry should bear in mind regarding the updated Fourth Money Laundering Directive and revised Wire Transfer Regulation.
The outcome of the EPC SEPA Instant Credit Transfer scheme’s public consultation, the European Banking Authority’s consultation on the draft Regulatory Technical Standards related to PSD2, the European Commission’s Green Paper on retail financial services, and the latest work related to contactless payments following the Euro Retail Payments Board’s recommendations are also briefly discussed in this September edition.
And because it is sometimes difficult to stay up-to-date with all the publications on payments, the newsletter gathers links to some interesting reports published in the last quarter.
