Real Time Payments, Coming Faster in 2020?

Thursday, February 20, 2020
at the offices of Rise New York
43 W 23rd Street, New York, NY 10010


We’ve seen a significant movement to real-time payments driven by businesses that are highly motivated to revolutionize their consumers’ experience – and their own – with more speed, enhanced capabilities, and back office efficiencies. As consumers expect immediacy in every aspect of their digital lives, businesses are further motivated to add real-time capabilities to their payments offerings. In the UK, Hong Kong, Singapore and the U.S., much of the real-time payments infrastructure for banks is already in place. For U.S. banks, challenges lie ahead for setting investment priorities and allocating resources to take advantage of the capabilities inherent in the new real-time payments infrastructure.

Join NYPAY for snacks, drinks, and a lively panel comprised of experts from every sector of the realtime payments revolution.
