Creating the payment services ecosystem

Leading experts in financial technology and fintech market players will hold a summer meeting of the AdvaPayClub professional community in the tranquil environment of Russian countryside.

The discussions scheduled to take place on June 5-6, 2017 at the Istra Holiday hotel will center around three main points:

  • The effects of PSD 2 on banks and PSPs;
  • The growth of the blockchain technology and its impact on the payments industry;
  • International financial projects in the light of geopolitics: effects of Brexit, Lithuania as Europe's new fintech centre, legislative proposals in the payments domain in Russia

Owners and C-level management of Russian and EU-based banks, PSPs, technology companies, AML and PSD 2 consultants, business lawyers and other interested parties are most welcome to join the meeting of a private club of the payments industry professionals in the comfort of a countryside hotel in the vicinity of Moscow.

LEADING EXPERTS IN FINANCIAL TECHNOLOGY AND FINTECH MARKET PLAYERS WILL HOLD A SUMMER MEETING OF THE ADVAPAYCLUB PROFESSIONAL COMMUNITY IN THE TRANQUIL ENVIRONMENT OF RUSSIAN COUNTRYSIDE.
In 2015-16 AdvaPayClub organised three offline events and more than 10 b2b webinars attended by nearly 500 people representing industry leading players.

Exploring current trends in the payment industry

The evolution of the EU legislation is clearly affecting the global financial market. PSD 2 is going to change the entire landscape of the payment industry. This meeting is a great opportunity for you to learn more about what impact this will have on your payment business, so you can take informed decisions.

AdvaPayClub makes every effort to provide people engaged in international payments business with the opportunity for productive networking. The upcoming event is expected to make a good start for the constructive dialogue between Russian and European market players.

For our European partners this would mean an inflow of legitimate investment money compliant with regulatory requirements and internationally accepted AML/KYC standards, new customers, business growth and positive changes on the employment market in the near future.

PSD 2 will also make an impact on industries adjacent to payment services. At the meeting you will learn what new business opportunities PSD 2 will bring to Russian PSPs and whether its implementation across the EU will lead to the reform of the payment system in Russia.

Russian bankers and non-bank payment service providers will have the opportunity to consult with world-class experts on exporting payment services to the EU by means of authorised payment or e-money institutions (API/EMI).

Once the new rules are known, Russian companies will be able to formulate their own strategies to enter international markets in the current circumstances, to streamline and diversify their business, and integrate into the EU business environment.
