The Rise of Payment Initiation Services and Providers is Advancing Financial Inclusion, Making Transactions Simpler, Safer and More Cost-effective

Date: Wednesday, June 30, 2021 | Time: 8:00 – 9:00 AM EDT

Financial connectivity is an essential foundation for a more inclusive and robust digital economy, and the role played by real-time payment systems has become even more paramount in the wake of COVID. The pandemic has also exposed how many people are still left behind because of lack of access to the formal financial system. In markets where PISP (Payment Initiation Service Provider) is enabled to effectively balance customer experience, transaction pricing and security, it can create innovations that can truly tackle financial inclusion. Enabling third-party access for the wider ecosystem means everyone benefits.
