Innovation in Retail Payments: What can we learn from Asia? TUE 11:45 – 12:15 Breakout Room 201 William Lam, Chief Commercial Officer, Ott Pay A lot of payment innovations took place in China, Singapore, Japan and Korea in the past 5 – 10 years. Adoption of mobile payment took off at an accelerated pace, especially in China. The WeChat and Alipay ecosystems are growing with more innovative payment technologies that Canadian banks and businesses should pay attention to. What is applicable to the Canadian payment landscape? What are fads vs. real payment innovation?
At nanopay, we are driven by a passion to transform the way the world moves money by creating a global payment network to transfer value as easily as sending a text. nanopay is a Fintech company based in Toronto that powers multi-currency payment solutions with instantaneous settlement. nanopay open APIs enable banks, payment service providers and businesses to securely store and transfer digital value between parties instantly and without intermediaries. The nanopay platform uses state-of-the-art cryptography and bankgrade HSM security and is designed for global regulatory compliance.
entities enabling real-time payments and visibility on cash positions across accounts and currencies. Instant payments and settlement reduce liquidity and settlement risks. nanoRail. Rewriting the evolution of currency. Cash is king—that’s why it’s so expensive. Cash has both physical and electronic security costs, making it unprofitable for banks to serve the unbanked population. Moreover, using today’s rails, merchants continue to pay high interchange fees and governments collect taxes long after transactions have occurred. nanoExchange. Rethinking cross-border payments. The cross-border process is broken. With the globalization of business, there is a need to easily transfer money across borders. Currently, cross-border payments require many correspondent banks—a process which offers limited visibility of timing and cost. Payments are expensive, slow, and often require manual intervention.
A Platform for Payment Innovation The nanopay platform is elegant in its simplicity. Centralization of authority with replication of data enables much faster and cheaper payments compared to distributed consensus systems, while state-of-the-art cryptography ensures the highest level of security. nanoConnect. Reinventing B2B Payments. Invoicing hasn’t changed much in the last hundred years. Companies prepare invoices while their customers mail cheques. Even if companies use invoicing software and accept credit cards, they have little visibility into the status of their payments. nanoLiquid. Reimagining Treasury Operations. It’s time to retire the spreadsheet. Multinational banks and corporations are finding it increasingly difficult to track their cash flow across entities, accounts, and currencies. Processes are time consuming and riddled with manual inputs. nanoLiquid creates digital cash accounts for each of your global

OUR VISION ON TRANSACTIONS AND DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION Everything Transaction We help our customers by showing them how to navigate in this new world of digital transformation and move towards a data sharing economy. As new kinds of value beyond currency - such as personal data, (access) rights, obligations, attention and reputation - form the basis of new business models, we see that every interaction is becoming a transaction. As a result, the number of digital transactions will increase exponentially. Trust We believe that trust is the #1 enabler of these new digital transactions, just like with payments and identity transactions. Innovative propositions will embed new forms of trust, in order to create new value for customers. The ‘lack of trust’ causes risks in the transactional environment. Organisations have difficulties with managing data and customers face more privacy concerns, because more data is widely spread over internet. We see an increasing number of security breaches and each breach has more impact on existing trust. Without the right ecosystem to collaborate, protect and share data, organisations are faced with increasing risks. We help organisations to realise their full potential in the new era where every interaction is a digital transaction and we help to orchestrate trust and mitigate unwanted risks. Collaboration Within these challenges, collaboration across industries and countries will be key. Together we need to build safe, uniform and customer centric ‘soft’ infrastructures and enable organisations to exploit the social and economic benefits of the data sharing economy. As is good practice with the ’old’ digital transactions, like payments, in order to combat fragmentation, achieve a certain scale and maturity and to create trust, we
need to work together to harmonise standards, rules and governance. This will result in new kinds of schemes (i.e. sets of agreements) for all sorts of functionality and data exchange, that help their participants and stakeholders to respond to the risks and opportunities of the exponential growth of the digital world. Data sharing Data is becoming the new oil. Companies use data to unlock new business models and reduce costs. This requires an open and collaborative exchange of data between an organisation, their partners, customers and competitors. In a world where everything is becoming a transaction, companies need to play a more active and inclusive role in their data sharing ecosystems in order to advance customer centricity. We serve our customers by helping them achieve the required level of openness whilst always ensuring that their own customers remain in control of their data. In data sharing, real business opportunities come from working together, even with competitors and previously unknown parties. As data becomes more valuable, trust is the central ingredient. www.innopay.com Douwe Lycklama Co-Founder Innopay Amsterdam WTC-F tower 3rd floor Strawinskylaan 381 1077 XX Amsterdam P: +31 20 6580651 E: email@example.com

The TransferWise story We were founded in 2010 with the vision of making international money transfers cheap, fair, and simple. Like a lot of good stories, this one starts with two friends. They’re both from Estonia. Taavet was the first employee at Skype, so he got paid in euros. But he lived in London, and needed pounds to pay the bills. Kristo worked for Deloitte and lived in London. He got paid in pounds, but had a mortgage back in Estonia. He needed to pay that in euros. Every month they moved their money the old way – which wasted their time and money. So they invented a beautifully simple workaround that became a billion-dollar business. A smart new way to send money internationally. They found a better way. Each month, they looked up the actual exchange rate on Reuters. Taavet put his euros into Kristo’s Estonian bank account, and Kristo topped up Taavet’s UK bank account using his pounds. Both got the currency they needed almost instantly, and neither paid an extra cent on bad exchange rates or unreasonable charges. There was no waiting, no stress, and no extra costs. ‘There must be others just like us…’ they thought. The rest is TransferWise. Do you need to send money? Join TransferWise. The Borderless account is a new way for Canadian businesses and freelancers to manage their money internationally. It's the next step in the fintech company's plan to lead the new wave of financial services.
The Borderless account is like having a local bank account in any country, without ever having to set foot there. Businesses and freelancers can get local account details (i.e. a unique account and routing number) for the US, Europe, and the UK. They can also keep money in 27 different currencies, transferring between these currencies instantly. TransferWise rolled out a debit card in 2018, for businesses and consumers alike. The card provides them the same benefits when traveling, making payments to family and friends abroad, or purchasing international goods. In the six years since it launched, TransferWise has grown from a small startup serving two currencies, into a global platform serving more than a million customers across 750 currency routes. The company now has 700 employees across nine offices around the world, 100 of whom are based in North America. It reached profitability in the beginning of 2017, anticipating a $130 million revenue run rate. The company is using its resources to fuel its next stage of development: expanding beyond money transfer. www.transferwise.com Andrew Boyajian Head of Banking, North America TransferWise 19 W 24th St New York, NY 10010, USA P: 888-908-3833 E: firstname.lastname@example.org

However, not every scheme has been successful. A mixed response to real-time payments has led to countless opportunities for customers and businesses in some countries, whereas in other countries, consumers have not fully embraced realtime payments. In addition, as the need for cleared payments in real-time increases, so do the opportunities for fraud to occur. As real-time approaches Canada, ensuring the success of the country’s new real-time rails is essential to ensure such opportunities aren’t passed by. This session will explore the reasons behind the mixed responses to real-time payments around the world as well as potential products and revenue opportunities. In addition, it will cover key environmental changes that banks need to make to ensure they are successful, such as speed of processing, strong resilience, and required backoffice functions including exceptions handling and fraud protection.

TUE 13:00 pm – 14:00 pm Breakout Room 204 Elena Whisler, Head of Enterprise Global Product Management, FIS Historically payments have developed in silos with different standards, infrastructure, geographical boundaries, use cases and end-users. Roles were clearly defined and access was tightly controlled. The move to open and instant payment rails is an opportunity to review the blueprint for payments. Driven by digital interactions in both payments innovation and the wider environment, customer and merchant expectations are growing towards an instant, integrated, multi-channel, yet personalized payments experience. Some payments may be initiated across one channel and completed via another. Others deeply embedded into the transaction context with the inter-bank rails almost invisible. The money movement itself is increasingly a commodity and payment providers are looking for new ways to drive value, increasing customer loyalty and engagement. This session will focus on examining the trends towards payments convergence, identify business models that are emerging, and discuss how to future proof payment infrastructures to embrace new opportunities.

Eliminate coding Transformer eliminates the ‘spec handover’ from analyst to developer. In fact, there’s no coding stage at all. Instead, you quickly build up a clear and easily understood model of the required behaviour – and then create the deployables directly from it. This revolutionary approach dramatically speeds up the creation of even the most complex validation, enrichment, mapping and data transformations.
The company's strong reputation owes much to its highly qualified and experienced staff, whose average length of service with Trace Financial is over ten years. We are especially rich in business and technical expertise in SWIFT messaging and in the securities industry, including all aspects of Euroclear UK & Ireland's CREST service.
Going forward, the models created in Transformer are a crystal-clear and up-todate record of the deployables they embody. They are also far easier to maintain over time than traditional spreadsheet-based specs and opaque code.
Trace Financial is part of the Trace Group, a privately-owned group of software and services companies with a turnover of around £17m. Other members of the Group include Trace Solutions, Trace ISYS and the OpenTWINS product suite, and Trace Payroll Services

But not everyone has equal access to lending. Discrimination based on race, ethnicity, sex and/or religion is a huge concern. On the other hand, AI can also be perceived as a threat within the lending market. Will it compromise security? Will it be ethical? Will it be just as biased as humans can be? This conference offers a 360-degree view of the potential and challenges of democratizing credit with AI.

Payments Canada clears and settles on average $173 billion every day and plays a vital role in Canada’s financial services industry. These transactions must be sent to the financial institution holding the account on which the funds are drawn.
