Webinar: The road to Instant Payments in Germany: Connectivity, Culture and Global Considerations

Tuesday 3rd July 2018

2pm – 3pm CST

Gene Neyer, Icon Solutions’ Chief Executive Officer, will be joining esteemed colleagues from Deutsche Bank, the ECB and EBA Clearing to speak at an exclusive InstaPay webinar.


InstaPay’s recent webinar (Transitioning to Instant Payments in Germany) received a number of questions from the audience with regards to the experiences of early instant payments adopters and the SCT Inst connectivity routes.

As a result, InstaPay will be hosting the webinar “The road to instant payments in Germany: Connectivity, Culture and Global Considerations” to specifically address these questions. This webinar will feature speakers from: Deutsche Bank, a bank at the forefront of instant payments adoption, the ECB and EBA Clearing on the attributes, reach and interoperability of TIPS and RT1, and from Icon Solutions, an instant payments implementer who will address the impact (if any) connectivity system choice will have on your technology approach for instant payments.
