A Simplified Solution for the Future of Payments

Disruptive Ideas & Technologies Track

The world of global payments remains in constant flux, reflecting a new collaborative ecosystem amongst incumbent banks, digital giants, fintechs, card networks, and of course, consumers and merchants. Yet transformation in the payments industry tends to occur gradually. This session looks at how global payments are what is ahead in the next five years. Both incumbents and upstarts are focused on the advent of a global, simplified network capable of delivering cross-border, cross-currency mass payments using local, low-value clearing systems. Attendees will hear from industry experts who delve into an international use case that further explores the importance of building an end-to-end, connected global network as the foundation for payments transformation that includes a full range of payment channels.

Questions to be answered by this session:

1.    How can organizations become better prepared for future payment innovations?
2.    Why is it important for organizations to cater to a full breadth of payment mechanisms?
