The network effect: Breaking the barriers to financial inclusion with interoperability

Wed 09 Nov 2022 / 11:00 (GMT), 12:00 (CET)

About the event

The payments world is all about fast, low-cost, frictionless and cross-border capabilities. The growth of an international payments network is encouraging both global trade and economic stability, but what about markets that are difficult to reach? How can we stop them getting left behind? With challenges including banking licences, unstable currencies and cross-border regulation, who can help close the gaps and make the connections needed to create a cyclical, collaborative and inclusive network? Where are the greatest opportunities to support these international ecommerce markets?

We'll be discussing

  1. Can a collaborative payments ecosystem’s stakeholders ensure that markets that are difficult to engage with are included? How do we reach this sweet spot?
  2. Who are the stakeholders responsible for removing payment pain points? What are the global benefits of total financial inclusivity?
  3. Stakeholders need to play by the rules and follow international regulatory frameworks, but how? What do startups and players in the space need to be aware of?
  4. What can we gain by breaking these barriers? Why is it so important?
