Faster Payments – Evolution or Revolution?

The Federal Reserve Bank’s report, Strategies for Improving the U.S. Payment System and industry analysts are recommending a new US payments system. They are suggesting a system modelled on the one implemented in the United Kingdom. This would have an interesting effect on the Federal Reserve, the National Automated Clearing House (NACHA), The Clearing House (TCH), and U.S. payments in general.

Many banks have begun to think of faster payments as inevitable. Given that mobile payments have become ‘real-time’, its land-based forerunner will need to catch up with it along with an estimated 20 or more countries around the globe.

Why You Should Attend:

Learning how decisions were made in the U.K. will help you better understanding the options faced by U.S. payments organizations, regulators, and providers. Several options will be available but which ones are best for all?

There are many masters to serve and many ‘cooks in the kitchen’; how will they all come together (or not) to decide on where faster payments are headed. The U.K. experience will illustrate the similarities and differences between the two payments environments and shed light on why the U.K. Faster Payments System (FPS) was successful.

The Federal Reserve, NACHA, the Clearing House, and the large banks will all have a position and an agenda.
