London, 01 September 2017 – The Prepaid International Forum (PIF), the not-for-profit trade association representing the prepaid financial services sector, is delighted to announce further details for its annual Summit taking place on 20-21 September at Lainston House in Winchester.
The 2017 Keynote Interview will see Suresh Vaghjiani, global payments trailblazer and Managing Director of Global Processing Services, in conversation with industry pundits Robert Courtneidge and Siobhan Moore.
Drawing on a wealth of knowledge in global payments, Suresh will deliver a unique perspective on the current state of the FinTech sector. From the explosive growth of new FinTech entrants and their impact on prepaid market development to working with an abundance of new players whilst striving to bring more choice, greater security and better resilience to the sector.
Commenting ahead of the event, Suresh Vaghjiani said “Traditional banks have always had a monopoly on the services they offer and with this an arrogance to new entrants to the market.
“We are now seeing a shift in power for the first time in banking history where they simply cannot ignore the revolution that has started in their back yard.”
Now in its eleventh year, the PIF Summit has become firmly established as a leading destination for high-level discussion and debate on the future for global prepaid. Attracting the attention of leading and emerging industry organisations the PIF Summit explores the prepaid trends, solutions and technology driving innovation in payments and analyses the impact of regulatory change.
Diane Brocklebank, Commercial Director of PIF said: “We are excited to announce the 2017 Keynote Interview with Suresh. As one of the most inspiring thought-leaders in payments, his experience and wisdom will challenge our thinking on FinTechs and the future for prepaid.”
