Thank you from the Payments Strategy Forum

At a Payments Community event on the 11th December 2017 the Forum formally marked the completion of its work and handover to the NPSO and UK Finance.  Nearly 250 members of the Community attended and heard key note speeches from the Forum, the PSR, the Bank of England, HMT, UK Finance and the NPSO.  The speakers reflected on the significance of our work, the immense contribution of the Community, the benefits of the collaborative approach and the need for the industry to maintain momentum.  

Papers and speeches from the event can be found here.

Our final key documents can be found here.

We would like to thank all members of the Community.  Your contributions either through joining Working Groups, attending Roundtables and events, or responding to Consultations has been invaluable and helped to develop a Blueprint that meets the needs of users. 

We are proud of this achievement and its potential to foster significant new competition and innovation in the UK economy. It is now over to NPSO and UK Finance to maintain our level of engagement with users and to deliver, in a timely and safe manner, our Blueprint to meet their current and future needs. We wish them success in translating our vision into reality.
