Nick Pedersen, Managing Director of Equiniti International Payments has been confirmed as a guest speaker at the 2017 Card & Payments Summit, taking place at The Radisson Blu Portman, London, on the 27th and 28th of March.

Pedersen, who was appointed Managing Director of the global payments provider in October last year following six years at Citigroup, will speak about the launch of the revised Directive on Payment Services (PSD2), detailing what this will mean for the banking and Fintech sectors, as well as exploring what impact PSD2 will have on the global payments market.

The 2017 Cards & Payments Summit will look to tackle the hottest topics at the top of the industry’s agenda and will deliver insight into the latest cutting-edge innovations and security challenges facing the payments market.

Pedersen will deliver his presentation during the opening morning of the event at 09.55am, followed by him attending a Leaders’ Forum panel debate alongside other sector experts at 10.40am, to further debate the impact of PSD2 on the evolving payments landscape.

Nick Pedersen, Managing Director of Equiniti International Payments said:I am honoured to be given the opportunity to share my views and insights alongside some of the most influential individuals in the sector and at one of the top events in the payments industry’s calendar.

“While PSD2 doesn’t come into effect until 1st January 2018, preparing for this momentous change is sure to be the big story of 2017. As a business, we certainly see PSD2 as a positive story, as it presents international payment providers the opportunity to offer a wider range of services to merchants and international payment customers than ever before.

“While PSD2 may not be due for some time still, I’m certain that it’s going to make its presence felt in every aspect of the international payments landscape throughout 2017.”
