Frank Kelly will tell the symposium that the Payment Services Directive is intended to promote both competition and consumer protection in the financial services sector by encouraging the delivery of new products.
Under the directive, account-servicing-payment service providers must now give access to their customers’ balance and transaction data.
This will facilitate new interfaces through which third-party providers can access payment accounts.
The symposium fee is €176 with a discounted cost of €150.
