Technology and innovation were the main drivers behind PSD2: emerging novel providers relying on fintech had been out of the initial regulatory scope (PSD1). Regulators enhanced, modernised, and harmonised the payment regulatory framework through PSD2. In turn, the payment regulatory framework opened the door for new entrants and even further fintech development. The payment market has seen the rise of novel, innovative business models and the shift of incumbents to fintech solutions.
This course examines the interplay between fintech and PSD2. The course focuses on the payment service providers regulated under PSD2, including payment institutions, third-party providers, and electronic money institutions (established by the Electronic Money Directive and regulated by both the Electronic Money Directive and PSD2). Fintech is instrumental to the transformation of the payment industry within the confines of PSD2.
The course offers the means to understand such transformation by analysing the regulatory framework and the latest technological developments. Crucially, the course provides the insight and tools to keep abreast of the anticipated trends and regulatory issues to successfully enter, serve, and become competitive in the payment industry.
By the end of the programme the participants will be able to:
Introduction and Overview of PSD2
Analysis of PSD2
Fintech & PSD2 interplay and reinforcing relationship
Key Challenges in Fintech and PSD2 implementation
