The Covid-19 pandemic has led to an increasing reliance on digital infrastructure and payments, with contactless payments increasing by 44% under lockdown. New demographics are also beginning to adapt to a more cashless society, with over 50s proved to be the fastest growing segment of digital payments. While these forms of payments can be leveraged to mitigate the impacts of the crisis, it also brings heightened potential to put a unique strain on payment and settlement systems in the UK.
Join us for this APPG on FinTech webinar where we will discuss these points and develop further insights with key speakers from across industry. This event will also be an opportunity to build on many of the questions and points made in HM Treasury’s Payment Landscape Review.
More information, including speakers, will be provided closer to the time.
