As the world becomes increasingly connected, the global marketplace is quickly becoming the only marketplace that matters — and this is eminently visible in the payments market. In order to continue growing, financial institutions, payment processors, remitters, card networks, program managers, telecoms, and new and emerging payment companies will have to operate on a global basis. However, with the increased opportunities for new markets come legal, compliance, technical and operational challenges. Only companies that can successfully overcome these challenges will be able to thrive in the new payments landscape, and given the rapid pace of technological advancement and often-conflicting country- and region-specific regulatory frameworks, companies that do not wish to become obsolete must act now.
The faculty of international payments professionals, including in-house counsel and compliance experts, senior executives from leading companies in the global payments market, high-level regulatory and enforcement officials, and top payments counsel from around the world, will provide attendees with the insights and tools necessary to achieve success in the evolving global market.
