Our member-driven working groups support PIF’s mission to drive improvement and stability across the payments ecosystem.
Led by experts in law and regulatory compliance, the PIF Legal & Regulatory Group advocates for members on a variety of policy issues as it seeks best outcomes from new and changing regulation. Its purpose is to assess new and changing regulations and proactively address any impact these have on PIF members according to their business model and the type of e-money/payment service or solution they provide, particularly where legislative proposals are viewed by PIF as disproportionate, inappropriate or disadvantageous to the sector as a whole.
The group produces a wide range of resources, from consultation responses and impact assessments to regular briefings and practical guidance.
PIF acts swiftly to prevent misperceptions and misinformed opinion from harming the reputation of the sector. PIF’s Public Affairs Committee is where we discuss and enact our response to adverse publicity, promoting the sector through strategic campaigns and industry outreach.
PIF is a regular contributor to consumer-focused articles and comments on sector coverage in national press and broadcast media.
PIF’s International Working Group supports PIF’s aim of expressing the challenges firms face in scaling a business across borders. It brings together payments and fintech experts from around the world to share experience, knowledge and market insights.
PIF regularly connects with like-minded associations from around the world to exchange sector insight and deepen our collective understanding of the opportunties and challenges facing our respective members in key markets.
