This seminar is a general overview for lawyers as to the payments industry for lawyers, by setting out how the industry operates; who are the stakeholders in the value chain; what are the common legal and regulatory themes in Singapore.
This seminar will provide a practical introduction to the functioning of the payments ecosystem and discuss the way that it is regulated in Singapore.
The payments industry is at the forefront of financial services innovation, as both consumers and businesses continue to seek frictionless, inexpensive yet safe ways to pay for goods and services or to move funds from person to person. The explosive growth in the e-commerce industry has ensured that online payments have similarly grown in tandem to support the flow of funds between consumers and merchants. While fintech is not new, the past 10 years or so have seen an explosion of different ways to pay and the growth of new stakeholders which form the value chain of the payments eco-system.
