IVI & the FinTech Corridor Webinar: The Future of Digital Payments - Trust, Compliance and Innovation

Thursday 14 October 2021

We are delighted to announce the next in our series of IVI Webinars. On this occasion we are collaborating with The FinTech Corridor to gather experts to present and discuss the future of digital payments. Stimulated by the circumstances surrounding the recent pandemic, innovative digital payment systems have been embraced at an accelerated rate due to their ability to empower customers and companies alike. However, the sustainability of these systems will be keenly influenced by consumer perception of trustworthiness. Incorporated within that is the ease with which digital payment providers can comply to those standards which are so crucial to their clients. And while the digital payments have flourished and evolved in recent years, there is always potential for further innovation and friction reduction. In this webinar, our panel will each present their own unique perspective on these areas, after which they will join to discuss the potential opportunities and pitfalls that lie ahead on the path to the future of digital payments.
