Mobey Launches International Remittances Workgroup
The New York Member Meeting will see the kickoff of a new workgroup at Mobey, looking into International Remittances. We are now looking for experts within the Mobey community to participate in the group and to discuss key issues with some of the leading practitioners in the area.
The group will investigate how current innovations in the mobile wallet and payment space can be used by financial service providers to offer secure, timely and affordable remittance services with global reach that comply with all relevant regulation including Know Your Client (KYC) and Anti Money Laundering (AML). Robin Green, who is the Executive Director for Business Development and new initiatives within Wholesale Banking at CIBC will chair the group. We will send more information later
Some of the discussion points for the group include:
- How mobile can disrupt money movement (domestically and internationally)
- Providing a superior customer experience, shorten the time it takes to move money
- Mobile as a distribution channel; prepaid top-up vs western union/bank account
- Technology helping close the gap for under-banked
If you are interested in participating, please contact Sirpa Nordlund (Sirpa.email@example.com). The first meeting for the group will be held during the workgroup day at our New York Member Meeting, on Wednesday 9 Oct at 1 pm. The schedule for group calls will be decided at the meeting.
