Deloitte comments on the Payments Systems Regulator
15 October 2014
Stephen Ley, head of payments at Deloitte, said:
“The British payments regulator is part of a post-crisis policy by the UK government to open up competition in banking more generally. This move will be eagerly seized upon by challenger banks and by non-banks, such as technology firms, who wish to develop payment services to improve customer experience and services. For established banks and payment providers, this new regime will challenge them to be more innovative and to manage the risks and exploit the opportunities that will come from a more open, transparent and competitive payment eco-system in the UK.”
