The payments industry has never been as fascinating as it is right now. From traditional financial services institutions jumping on the digital transformation bandwagon to innovators and new entrants finding new business models and capitalising on new technologies. Or regulators trying to cope with it all and maintain some sort of integrity in an increasingly complex ecosystem facilitating the exchange of value. This interactive one-day training course will take you through the fundamentals of the payments ecosystem; from cards to ACH to alternative payments and debunk the jargon. It will also give you an overview of the payments value chain to gain a grasp of the key economics and take you through a whistle stop tour of the regulatory landscape.
The Payments Association (previously the Emerging Payments Association or EPA) is for payments firms, big & small. We help our members navigate a complex regulatory environment and facilitate profitable business partnerships. Our purpose is to empower the most influential community in payments, where the connections, collaboration and learning shape an industry that works for all.
We operate as an independent representative for the industry and its interests, and drive collaboration within the payments sector in order to bring about meaningful change and innovation. We work closely with industry stakeholders such as the Bank of England, the FCA, HM Treasury, the Payment Systems Regulator, Pay.UK, UK Finance and Innovate Finance.
