Webinar: The road to Instant Payments in Germany: Connectivity, Culture and Global Considerations


Webinar: The road to Instant Payments in Germany: Connectivity, Culture and Global Considerations

Tuesday 3rd July 2018

2pm – 3pm CST

InstaPay’s recent webinar (Transitioning to Instant Payments in Germany) received a number of questions from the audience with regards to SCT Inst connectivity routes via EBA Clearing’s RT1 system and the European Central Bank’s (ECB) TARGET Instant Payments Settlement service (TIPS). Common questions included a requirement to understand the advantages of each system, their offering in terms of reach and interoperability, and the impact of their decision on their choice of instant payment technology solutions.

As a result, InstaPay will be hosting the webinar “The road to instant payments in Germany: Connectivity, Culture and Global Considerations” to specifically address these questions. This webinar will feature speakers from: Deutsche Bank, a bank at the forefront of instant payments adoption, the ECB and EBA Clearing on the attributes, reach and interoperability of TIPS and RT1, and from Icon Solutions, an instant payments implementer who will address the impact (if any) connectivity system choice will have on your technology approach for instant payments.
