While the convergence of payments and mobile communications seems inevitable to many, difficult questions remain about everything from secure infrastructure to business models that provide clear benefits to all stakeholders - especially consumers and businesses. For financial institutions, two major questions persist: how mass-market mobile financial services might be funded and how the revenue might be shared among the players in the transaction value chain. Discussions about these and a series of related issues are going on behind closed doors at industry associations and public agencies around the globe. The panel will address key issues such as:
- What business models are working today?
- How well do these models meet banks' and other players' requirements?
- Is the necessary security in place for banks to play?
- Are there other issues that constrain the options?
"Many banks have rolled out mobile banking and payments solutions, and as consumers continue to reach new levels of comfort with mobile, we have seen some innovative and successful approaches to mobile banking and payments emerge," said Salesky. "Based on these experiences and future mobile initiatives, this presentation will provide real-world examples of how all of the players in the mobile financial services value-chain can better leverage mobile banking and payments initiatives."
