A long time in the making, immediate payments will soon be an option for U.S. financial institutions and their clients. How will it work and how will it affect different parts of our industry?

We'll hear views from the panelists on what "faster payments" really means, how it's been implemented in other countries, and how it may shape banking and how we pay.

Feel free to inform colleagues about this event who may be interested.
