The Growing Strategic Importance of Instant Payments [Webinar]

immediate payments opportunities

Financial institutions already recognize the potential of instant (or immediate) payments in the real-time, open banking landscape, however many are still determining the best path forward as they juggle new regulatory requirements and the evolving demands of customers.

Open APIs, cross-border real-time operability across Europe, “Request for Pay” (RfP) proxy services, and PSD2 are all opening the door to new opportunities. But a big picture strategy is needed to successfully ride the instant payments wave.

Embarking on an instant payments initiative requires financial institutions to overcome internal obstacles; selecting a scheme and understanding the differences, planning around unknown volumes, and establishing a practical, efficient approach to real-time modernization. At the same time, institutions also need to position their businesses to move quickly and efficiently in response to future market disruptions.

ACI Worldwide and Finextra have partnered to address these issues in a live webinar ‘Open, Instant Payments in Europe – Are You Riding the Wave?’ on Tuesday, September 26 at 3pm (BST). The live webinar will bring together the following leading immediate payments experts to share insights;

  • Honey Kirtley, Vice President, Senior Product Manager, Global GBP Clearing Solutions, Treasury Services at BNY Mellon
  • Barry Kislingbury, Director Solution Consulting, Immediate Payments, ACI Worldwide
