Merchant Payments Ecosystem (MPE), the leading European event on merchant payments, is happening February 20-22 in Berlin. MPE is the only European event focused on merchant payment acceptance and covers every aspect of card acquiring, alternative payments and payment technology online, mobile and in-store.

Trulioo’s Strategic Partnerships Manager, Nathan Soohoo, has been invited to talk about the current state of RegTech APIs and data access, which is scheduled for Day 3 in the Payments Ecosystem Stream, Session 2 being held on February 22.

Data and APIs: Land of Opportunity or Non-Compliance Fines? RegTech to the Rescue

Payments Ecosystem Track

From GDPR to 4AMLD, Europe’s regulatory landscape is undergoing many changes this year. While innovation is discussed and encouraged, regulated businesses that must adhere to AML, KYC obligations are often left on their own to navigate the widening grey areas in today’s ever-changing regulatory landscape.

As merchant acquirers and payment service providers explore how they can take advantage of next-gen technology and data to increase efficiencies and reduce costs as they scale their business operations, they must also maintain a compliant framework to operate within. In the wake of these changes, Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) powered by RegTech providers are leading the way in helping companies take advantage of the opportunities stemming from these new regulations.

•    Understand how new APIs are streamlining cumbersome and manual onboarding processes

•    How access to new data and insights can be used to form meaningful policy

•    Reduce acquisition costs and timeframes while meeting global regulatory requirements

•    Reduce fraud by combining unique data sets across all spectrums of the population

•    Identification opportunities in an increasingly digital environment

Nathan will later join a panel discussion titled, Payment Ecosystem Industry in Times of Major Regulation Implementations. Joining him will be industry leaders from UnionPay International, ACI Worldwide, and CustomWeb. Be sure to stop by this session and meet with our team at Booth P08.
