What members say

"If you want to get great insight from industry veterans and focussed help both understanding and influencing new regulations, there is no better bet than joining PIF."

Paul Swinton, CEO, B4B Payments

"Our organisation joined PIF a number of years ago, primarily to plug into its expertise in analysing, influencing and setting the agenda surrounding the regulatory environment for the prepaid financial services industry.

In particular, we valued PIF's ability to not only advise on regulatory issues but help shape and deliver a better outcome for the industry and our company.

PIF continues to do this today, but provides a platform for promoting the prepaid industry as an innovative engine behind the fintech, payments and challenger bank sectors that are changing the financial services landscape in many markets. This all feeds into a member grouping of innovative thinkers that help us to continue to innovate in our sector."

Declan Byrne, Managing Director, GVS Prepaid
