Knocking down the payment barriers - on demand Q&A session

Increasing access to UK payments schemes and fostering a more competitive banking landscape. A special Q&A with VocaLink’s payments services director, Chris Dunne.

Joining and connecting to any of the UK payment schemes is currently relatively costly and complex, particularly for challenger banks. Scheme membership is dominated by the Tier 1 banks and there is little inter-scheme coordination and no consolidated way to access multiple services across different schemes which in itself is a driver of cost and a barrier to entry.

This is a key area of interest for the incoming Payment Systems Regulator. There are already initiatives underway to help open access to payment system, such as a move to pre-funded settlement for Faster Payments and BACS and lowering the entry requirements.

  • How far can entry requirements be relaxed without putting the system at risk?
  • What benefits will this bring to small institutions, focusing on operational information, connectivity, certification and settlement management?
  • How would access to Faster Payments improve competitiveness?
  • Should KYC be seen as a competitive area or should it be supported by a utility?
  • Will the new Payments Services Regulator have any impact on competitiveness in the UK retail banking space?

Chris Dunne sat down with Finextra to answer these questions in a webcast discussion first broadcast live on September 23. .

Investment and Asset Management Workshop

Investment and Asset Management Workshop

23rd March 2020

Join Finextra Research for its second Sustainable Finance Live event on 23 March 2020 to peel away the misnomers and ‘greenwashed’ ideas about sustainable finance and explore the ways the industry can take proactive steps to deliver the UN SDGs. Now open for registration, the one-day immersive event showcases a smattering of expert contributors who will introduce the day with insight into the green projects being launched across asset management and investment banking. Attendees will first Lean In to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development’s exploration of their experience accessing early stage investment, and Refinitiv’s discussion of the data reporting difficulties that face ESG-minded portfolio managers. Leaning Back, attendees will be given the opportunity to question industry leaders on the finer details of these concepts and projects at a series of roundtables. By the afternoon workshop session, it will be more than apparent that not all ESG polices are created equal, so it’s vital to cut through the hype to see precisely how each link in the value chain helps work towards achieving the UN SDGs. Attendees will finally Learn by Doing in the workshop by taking the key learnings from earlier sessions and carving out a real-world solution to an ESG dilemma posed at the outset of the event. See the full agenda and register your interest to the Sustainable Finance Live event here.
