Prime directive

By Dave Birch posted Mar 13 2009 at 10:10 AM

[Dave Birch] Thanks to the generosity of our sponsor, the StoLPan project, Consult Hyperion and city lawyers Sidley Austin will be running an free afternoon seminar on the Payment Services Directive (PSD) at the Guoman Charing Cross Hotel in London on 30th March 2009.

The seminar will comprise three sessions:

  • An overview of the PSD by William Long from Sidley Austin
  • National implementations in members states by William Long from Sidley Austin, and then after tea
  • A roundtable discussion (led by me) on the business impact featuring a couple of companies in the field.
Some observers think that for banks, the PSD represents cost with little benefit, but for some non-banks, the PSD represents an opportunity to get into the payment business. Why not come along and make up your own mind by discussing the directive with other experts in the field?

There is a more detailed agenda for the seminar here. it is free to attend but places are strictly limited with priority afforded to delegates to the Digital Money Forum on 31st March and 1st April at the same location. To register please e-mail gloria.benson (at) chyp.com or call on +44 1483 301793
