The money transfer annual summit

The Global Money Transfer Summit (GMTS), is the most recognised conference in the money transfer industry. It brings together innovators, disruptors and stakeholders to explore the challenges and opportunities in the remittance industry.
GMTS brings together a global network of innovators, disruptors and established industry stakeholders driving the worldwide payments and financial services revolution. GMTS is the forum where the main operators and regulators will examine the areas that are having the biggest impact in the remittance industry.

Topics included in the agenda

  • Money Transfer Operators (MTOs): - In this session we will discuss how MTOs need to evolve to be able to truly grasp the opportunities presented by the changes in technology while contending with potential new disruptive models and other challenges.

  • Regulations: -The continuing regulatory challenges  - How are the Payments Systems Directive 2 (PSD2) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) working in practice? Do they serve as models for the rest of the world? What are the barriers to the effective functioning of the passport? What other EU policy measures are required to further promote the success of the PSD? What are consumer perception and behaviours around PSD2 and GDPR regulatory changes and the shift to an open banking world?

  • Crypto-money

  • Mobile Money

  • The digital innovation - The money transfer industry is witnessing rapid growth in innovations across the value chain, thus making it more fragmented. Digital banking payment services providers in the form of fintech start-ups have caused disruption in the banking and payments landscape. What are the trends in the payment industry that are expected to drive the dynamics of the remittance ecosystem?

  • EU regulators - How EU regulators are preparing for the new EU environment? In this session we will discuss how EU regulators are preparing to work with UK firms seeking to retain access to the bloc, and how UK firms are preparing to work with EU regulators.

  • Investors: - Are the disruptive international money transfer companies the hottest startups for investors? What is the whole remittance industry overview from an investor perspective, considering all the different models? How has the increase in technology affected the valuation between the traditional model and the pure online players in remittances?​ ​What are the factors that can impact a valuation?
