The payments industry is in flux. Many countries are moving towards instant payments (IP) or what they refer to as real-time payments (RTP). Some nations have already made the transition, such as the UK and Singapore, while others such as Australia, US and the EU are launching schemes. However, there is a lack of information on best practice and the potential options to create an instant payments network. InstaPay has been set up to enable those working in the industry to share information and to spark discussions that push the industry towards more efficient payments frameworks.

InstaPay’s Advisory Board features distinguished figures from The Clearing House (TCH), Icon Solutions, Lipis Advisors, McKinsey & Company, the Payments Advisory Group and VocaLink. Alongside industry leaders, they cover emerging trends, schemes and challenges, and share their opinions.
