PIF a not-for-profit membership organisation that promotes safe, sustainable innovation in payments that balances the interests of industry, regulators and consumers. Regarded as a focal point for advocacy and thought-leadership, we offer our members a safe space to learn, connect and grow.
Building Market Confidence
Trust is hard to build, but very easy to lose. The consequences of poor practice can be severe. Apart from the regulatory impacts it could lead to loss of public confidence in new and alternative payment methods and customers not trusting firms with their money. As well as supporting our members in practical ways through accessible learning and support, we gear our work towards gathering and sharing information that drives market confidence
Left unchecked, misinformed public opinion and misleading media coverage creates confusion and can be harmful, both to individual firms and the industry as a whole. We bridge knowledge gaps where we find them, through educational campaigns and fact-based input, free from hyperbole and knee-jerk reactions.
Helping our Members Grow and Thrive
We know how challenging it can be to launch or scale a business in the payments space. Whether that’s taking a new product to market, expanding your network, or finding the right partners or investment to help you grow, we help our members to navigate the challenges, identify new opportunities and know the risks. We do this through events and conversations with influential decision-makers from across the payments ecosystem.
Driving Positive Change
We work to ensure that the innovation in payments our members support or provide is understood and accommodated by regulators, policymakers, consumer bodies and the media, and embraced with confidence by end users. Ultimately, everything we do is aimed at promoting a safe, sustainable market for payments in which our members can grow and thrive.
