Why Join the Payments Innovation Forum?
Ever Changing Rules & Regulation
Our members operate in a complex payments ecosystem where the expectations of regulators are growing in tandem with the pace of innovation. The consequences of poor practice can be severe. Apart from the regulatory impacts it can lead to loss of public confidence in the sector and customers not trusting firms with their money.
We will help you be clear on your obligations to consumers and industry regulators, know the implications of new and changing regulations and maintain the highest standards of practice and compliance.
Sector Awareness and Trust
Building trust in payments and fintech is our number one priority. Left unchecked, misleading media coverage and misinformed opinion creates confusion and can be harmful to both individual firms and the industry as a whole.
We work on your behalf to inspire legitimate confidence in the industry through educational campaigns and fact-based input, free from hyperbole and knee-jerk reactions.
Knowledge, Experience and Expertise
PIF is led and governed by the industry for the industry. Through a year-round programme of meetings and events, we give you access to expertly-curated content and lessons learned through the lens of fintech start-ups, scale-ups and everything in between.
Drawing on our members' knowledge, experience and expertise, we offer regular briefings, practical member guidance, best practice and an abundance of opportunity to grow your network and connect with potential new partners and customers.
Ultimately, everything we do is aimed at promoting a healthy, innovative and sustainable market for payments in which our members can grow and thrive.
