PSD 2 – the Future of Payments with Allen & Overy

11th December, 10:30 – 11:30 (Warsaw/Amsterdam/Sarajevo)

The overall objective is to provide audience with a broad overview of the Payment Services Directive (2015/2366) or PSD II.

The webinar will present details on the regulations of the Directive itself including the scope and the new regulated services in comparison to PSD I: payment initiation and account information services. The (practical) consequences for banks and customers – client authentication, remote communication, information security – will be broadly discussed.The participant will hear also about the licencing process and the new entries to the regulated financial markets that we see. Finally the webinar will look onto market developments and key questions from clients that are received in the firm.
