Our approach extends beyond the essentials to help ensure our members and the industry as a whole maintain the confidence of their customers and industry regulators. The consequences of poor practice can be severe. Apart from the regulatory impact, it could lead to consumers losing confidence in the sector and not trusting firms with their money. Our approach helps you to be clear on your obligations, guides you through the complexities of regulatory change and helps you to identify the opportunities regulation can bring.
Whatever the size of your payments business, we're here to support you
Why join the Payments Innovation Forum?
Building trust and awareness
Building trust in payments and fintech is our number one priority. Left unchecked, misinformed opinion creates confusion and can be harmful. We support members with bespoke educational campaigns that bridge knowledge gaps and promote understanding of the purpose and value of new and established payment services for consumers, businesses and public sector organisations.
We proactively advocate for balanced policy initiatives that support innovation, inclusion and growth, whilst protecting the interests of consumers. We represent our members' interests on important policy matters, educate stakeholders and act swiftly to prevent legislative proposals from stifling innovation and competition in payments.
Knowledge, experience and expertise
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 established firms. We showcase the breadth of innovation in payments and host candid conversations on important industry issues and trends.
Our events give you access to real-world insight into launching, operating and scaling a payments business, and an abundance of opportunity to promote your business, grow your network and connect with potential new partners and customers.
We believe that every business in payments should benefit from our work, no matter their size. That's why smaller firms and start-ups joining as affiliate members receive the same level of support as every other member.
