Good points around the cost for securing access. A few additional points for consideration:

  • If a bank needs low risk, low cost, simple access to Faster Payments then aggregator services are the best way to go, be that the UK model or other multi-tenant / processor service offerings being planned in other countries. There are plenty of proven solutions being offered by proven providers and cost models can be aligned with revenue capture for a bank.
  • Technology solution costs are not the only ones to consider. Sponsorship or gaining access to a clearing & settlement account in most countries will likely be required and may not be in place already for smaller banks. Hopefully something the BoE is fixing asap for the UK market and I'm sure others will follow.
