Earlier this week I attended the launch of a new book, the Future of finance after SEPA.
I edited this book and was asked to present a summary of the views
provided by the contributors. Bearing in mind that there are over
thirty contributors to this book, ranging from the European Commission
to the EBA, from the European Payments Council through to SWIFT, from
JPMorgan to Nordea and from Vocalink to Sterling Commerce and more,
there were a lot of views to summarise. But here goes …
There are three views of SEPA, not forgetting the Payment Services
Directive (PSD) and the Euro. These views may be summarised as the
Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
