This is part 1 of a 2-part series entitled, "Mobile Payments: Global Markets, Empowered Consumers and New Rules?"

More than two-thirds of the world’s population has a mobile phone, creating opportunities for new payment platforms in both developed and developing nations. This one-day conference will explore the benefits of mobile payments to consumers – both in developed and developing markets and the types of regulatory approaches that will increase consumer adoption and provide incentives for businesses to compete.

These issues will be considered:

  • What are the benefits to the consumer of mobile payments (e.g. remittances, money transfer for the unbanked, efficiency, more security and control)?
  • What advantages do mobile payments offer that other forms of payment mechanisms do not?
  • How do mobile payments fit into existing regulatory frameworks in US, EU and other markets?
  • What sort of regulatory models will encourage mobile payments adoption in both developed and developing markets?
  • Should telecommunications operators, financial institutions and other business entities be permitted to compete to provide these services?

Part 1 Covers:

  • What Will it Take to Make Mobile Payments Mainstream in North America?
  • A User Centric Model for Mobile Payments
