Key players in the Remittance Industry will gather at “GMT Summit-2012”
As every year the International Association of Money Transfer Networks (IAMTN) is inviting money transfer professionals from all over the world to the major event of the industry - the Global Money Transfer Summit. This year’s London Summit will take place on 7th & 8th November 2012 at London Hilton Docklands Riverside.
The financial crisis of 2008 that started with the collapse of the financial sector in the United States and Western Europe quickly spread to countries around the globe. It is critical to understand the impact of this crisis in the remittance industry. There is likely to be more consolidation in the remittances market, as it becomes increasingly difficult for small and medium sized operators to maintain profitability, given the current trends in the business. This phenomenon is being driven by reducing prices, tighter margins and more competition. RSPs cannot get away from regulation but instead of looking at it as a barrier the industry would benefit from looking at it as creating a level playing field.
There are so many elements to regulation, including anti-money laundering/CFT, licensing and consumer protection. Over 95% of all of Europe’s payment institutions are authorised or registered by the FSA. With this concentration of operators it is vital that the industry has an open dialogue with all the organisations that regulate and monitor the industry. In this interactive session the four main UK Government Policy and implementation bodies - Her Majesty’s Treasury, the Financial Services Authority, Her Majesty’s Customs and Revenue and the Serious Organised Crime Authority will update the audience on current trends and new initiatives in this area.
