Open banking, cross-border real-time payments, modernized domestic payment architectures, new payment mechanisms, technology, and regulations are all driving rapid change in the banking and payments industries. This interactive session will delve into key bank issues, such as how banks can differentiate themselves in an increasingly homogeneous market and add value to replace dwindling transaction revenue. It will also explore whether emerging ecosystems of specialists will develop and the role banks will create for themselves. Finally, it will analyze the opportunities created by overlay services, such as request to pay, and how banks can take advantage of them.
