EMA at Payments Regulation and Innovation Summit 2024

The EMA is pleased to be supporting City & Financial Global’s third annual Payments Regulation and Innovation Summit taking place on 25th January 2024, in London.

The payments landscape has changed dramatically since the previous edition of this Summit. Technological developments, changing consumer behaviour, digital currencies, APP scams and money-laundering have all proliferated over the last year and continue to challenge traditional payment providers and the many new entrants to the markets. Keeping ahead of the curve of these developments has been a real challenge for the regulators. The Government has announced plans to reform the powers and regulatory perimeter of the Bank of England and the Payment Systems Regulator as the payment ecosystem becomes ever more complex and inter-connected.

Thaer Sabri, EMA’s CEO, will join a Panel on The future of digital currencies as a payment system.
