Payments Expert Group

Co-chaired by:

Xavier Herrero, Manager Operations, CaixaBank

Beat Bannwart, Digital Transformation & Ecosystems, WMPC Technology at UBS

Sirpa Nordlund, Senior Vice President, Industry Engagement, Country Director Finland, Nets

The objective of the Expert Group is to analyse the strategic options for banks’ business models in the changing payments landscape.

Banks know how to process payments but many still haven’t shifted their mindset from a payment being seen a traditional product to a what a payment actually means to it being a service for customers. Many lack a focused strategy on what role to play in payments and how to stay in business in this changing landscape.

The payments landscape is changing fast, impacted by the emergence of platforms such as Alibaba and Amazon, closed loop payment systems and crypto-currencies, creating competing channels for payments and business models. What does the fact that payments are staying in these loops mean for banks? What are the risks in the development of these ecosystems? What are the opportunities for banks?

Banking as a service (like the Goldman Sachs/Marcus, JPMorgan e-commerce platform announcement) – could there be an opportunity to insource payments again?
