On Wednesday 22nd June, we are running a private dinner meeting of the Financial Services Club in London to launch the results of our recent survey: "Are payments infrastructures fit for purpose?" which was completed by 350 payments professionals worldwide.
As a taste of what came out of this, respondents were asked to take a view about each of the core infrastructures chosen – SWIFT, the EBA, Equens, Eurogiro, VocaLink, STET, CHIPS, Fedwire -and assess whether they are "innovative", "leading-edge", "fit for purpose", "challenging" or "out-of-date".
Based upon this feedback, four infrastructure providers were viewed as pushing the boundaries while three were "out-of-date" and "challenging".
Who are they?
Find out by registering at: FSClub Dinner.
Members of banks, payments infrastructures, press and media can attend free of charge as our guest.
