The rise of digital banking and increased demand for payment solutions that are faster, more transparent, flexible, secure and cost effective has led to huge changes in the European payments market. It is therefore vital that banks & FIs react and focus on digital payments transformation to leverage the competitive advantage that this offers.

Join Bottomline and other industry experts as they explore the new opportunities created by the adoption of instant/faster payments, the improvements resulting from co-existence between cross-border channels and the benefits of ISO 20022 across the whole payments ecosystem. We also explore what pre-validation initiatives will help to mitigate against the potential rise in fraud & financial crime that have previously resulted from the launch of new payment channels – Confirmation of Payee, Bank Account Validation etc. The panel’s analysis will include a deep dive into the major market infrastructure initiatives now underway for account-to-account (A2A) payments in the European Economic Area (EEA) and individual European markets (including the U.K.), as well as regional/local initiatives in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Nordic countries, Switzerland (including Liechtenstein), and the U.K.
  • What is the current state of European payment infrastructures? What needs to change and why? Who is driving these changes?
  • How are banks & FIs responding to these changes? Does it vary by country/region?
  • What will the benefits be for banks & FIs that prioritise and go beyond the basic demands?
  • How can the cloud/SaaS help to support change and efficient implementation?
