  • Busting the Myths of Payments Transformation Recorded: Sep 29 2020 61 mins
    Icon Solutions, Danske Bank, NatWest and AWS
    ‘Payments transformation’ has emerged as perhaps the single biggest opportunity, and challenge, for banks. Given the proven link between successful payments transformation and payments profitability, the need to transform has fast become essential.

    However, with various organisations reporting a lack of information across strategy and best-practice,  misconceptions about payments transformation can stall progress and hamper innovation. Busting these myths allows financial institutions to avoid common pitfalls and seize the opportunities.

    Join us to hear speakers from NatWest, Danske Bank, AWS and Icon Solutions discuss:

    Myth 1: ‘Payments can’t be profitable’
    Challenging? Yes. Insurmountable? No. Danske Bank, will share experience of introducing a visionary payments strategy to enable innovation and reduce costs.

    Myth 2: 'Regulatory compliance is the end goal for payments transformation’
    Discover how, for NatWest, meeting regulations is only a springboard for a comprehensive payments transformation strategy

    Myth 3: ‘The cloud is too risky for payments’ 
    Hear from AWS on how a truly cloud-native, cloud-agnostic approach can deliver resilience, security and agility for bank

    Myth 4: ‘The only choice for banks is in-house or outsourced’
    Icon Solutions will share recommendations on how banks can leverage a hybrid approach to payments transformation.

  • Leveraging ISO 20022 in the US - What, why and how? Recorded: Mar 4 2020 59 mins
    Moderator: Lauren Jones | Speakers: Gene Neyer - Icon Solutions, Stacy Rosenthal - Santander, Cheryl Jacobs - Wells Fargo
    The ISO 20022 financial messaging standard is now seeing widespread adoption for domestic and international payments solutions worldwide. ISO 20022 is designed to enable organisations to communicate information across a wide spectrum of financial services applications. The structured, rich message format makes it easier to automate processing of financial messages, which can deliver business benefits such as simpler reconciliation and improved STP rates. ISO 20022 also offers the potential for greater interoperability between payment systems, both domestic and global. But is ISO 20022 delivering on these promises?

    Join this webinar to hear speakers from Wells Fargo, Santander and Icon Solutions:

    Take stock of ISO 20022 in use today
    Paint a picture of the future of payments
    Identify key developments already underway
    Examine what is needed from market participants.

  • The Payments Transformation Race - who's winning? Recorded: Nov 26 2019 57 mins
    Lauren Jones, Editor, InstaPay
    The world of payments is going to be fundamentally transformed within the next 5 years. McKinsey & Co. have reported that payments will become a $2 trillion business by 2020 and potentially $3 trillion by 2025. Payments will be reshaped by technology and redefined by regulation, and most importantly, payments will be refocused from a commoditised proposition to a strategic, value-adding solution.

    There is no doubt that banks who have a clear and robust payments transformation plan will be more profitable than their competitors, widening the gap between the winner and losers in the transformation race. However, according to recent research by financial technology company Icon Solutions and consultancy firm Aite Group, The Payments Transformation Race: Criteria for Success 63% of top tier banks are reporting that they are either close to or below profitability hurdles for payments. So how can banks may sure they have a slice of the pie?

    The true success of a payments transformation effort is not immediately measurable so how do institutions reconcile themselves with a longer term pay off? Are there any quick wins that can help showcase return on investment?

    During this webinar we will take stock of the state of play today, paint a picture of the future of payments, identify key developments already underway and examine what is needed from market participants. Key insights will be shared from the research as well as on-the-ground perspectives from banks undergoing their own payments transformation program.

  • Real-Time Payments in The United States: A game of inches Recorded: Jun 13 2019 59 mins
    InstaPay, Accenture, Citizens Bank, Avidia Bank
    With over 10,000 financial institutions, 21 million business payers, and an $18 trillion economy, the U.S. is world's largest and most complex marketplace for payment services. Compared with nations where a relatively small number of banks dominate the entire financial system, any plan for Real-Time Payments (RTP) in the U.S. must consider the concerns of an exceptionally large and diverse set of stakeholders.

    Recognising the need to remain globally competitive – and to be able to connect with RTP systems around the world, The Federal Reserve’s Faster Payments task force set goals for a new payments system that included near-instantaneous transactions. The Clearing House launched RTP in November 2017, to meet these goals. Other instant payments solutions exist in the U.S. such as PayPal’s Venmo and Early Warning’s Zelle, but how is the market moving towards the Federal Reserve’s 2020 deadline for ubiquitous instant payments? Without any top-down mandates, encouraging innovation via a market-driven approach relying on voluntary collaboration among payment services and stakeholders can be a challenge. How are payments players reacting?

    Overlay services – social media integration, instant loans, request for payments – and open APIs (Application Program Interfaces) provide innovations that encourage consumers and businesses to use real-time payments. How is the U.S. moving forward with these innovations?

  • What do real-time payments really mean for corporates? Recorded: May 23 2019 63 mins
    Gene Neyer - Icon Solutions, Steve Ledford - TCH, Peter Gordon - PAYFI, Adam Rust - Reinvestment Partners
    Faster Payments have changed the world for the better and many corporates are already reaping the benefits. Corporates being able to pay their employees daily enables better budget management for those living pay check to pay check. This can even mean getting 30 minutes of your life back every week because you don’t have to plan and track your spending. Faster Payments have already made an impact – with more to come!

    In this webinar we will hear from industry experts on the road they took to real-time payments and the wins that have come with adopting new technologies. We will explore the drivers compelling them to adjust their business models, their adoption of new payment options, and how RTP is enabling them to accelerate their growth in this open, data-driven and real-time world.

    This webinar will be moderated by Icon’s Executive Advisor, Gene Neyer, and will discuss how corporates are adapting to these industry changes, exploring:

    •The challenges and opportunities corporates are faced with,
    •Their vision and how they adapt the business case,
    •Interplay between old and new payment methods,
    •The future as they make moves to adapt in this new space.
  • Leveraging instant payments to deliver payments transformation Recorded: Apr 5 2019 59 mins
    BNP Paribas, CapGemini, Icon Solutions
    Much has been discussed on the challenges involved with the adoption of instant payments – but there has been little discussion on how instant payments can enable banks to revolutionise their payments systems and spearhead payments transformation for the future.
    In 2019, the banking market will increasingly be distinguished between those who are innovators and those who are not. Payment transformation will be a pivotal point for those wanting to go further than glossy exteriors to lasting transform. Those that embrace the new open, data driven, and real-time world with technology models that match will lead the market. Those that continue to lean on legacy systems will become laggards and fall behind.

    This InstaPay webinar will explore how instant payments is an opportunity for banks to review their payments architecture, understand how to unburden themselves from legacy systems and compete in an evolving digital economy.
  • The journey towards a faster, safer and more efficient payments system in the US Recorded: Dec 6 2018 61 mins
    Gene Neyer - Icon Solutions, Carl Slabicki - BNY Mellon, Steve Ledford - TCH, Jim Reuter - FirstBank, Connie Theien - Fed
    The Federal Reserve recently requested public comment on a number of proposals. What does the Fed request for comment mean to the Financial Community and ultimately, to the end-user?

    This webinar is an opportunity to hear directly from the Fed on what is included in the request, an insight into the reaction of The Clearing House, as well as hearing the views of both a large and a mid-sized bank. As your institution is thinking through the strategic implications, take a listen to the experts and then form your own opinions. We also do encourage you to submit your comments to the Fed by the Dec 14th!

    The webinar will be moderated by Gene Neyer, Executive Advisor, Payments, at Icon Solutions. Gene’s extensive payments experience includes membership of the successor to the Fed Fast Payments Taskforce, GFFT, and President of the Supplier Committee at BAFT.
