Topic: Instant Payments Are Here! What Are the Implications for Community Banks?
Our guest is Nick Denning, SVP of Payments Industry Relations at ICBA Bancard®, a subsidiary of the Independent Community Bankers of America
Instant payments are a type of faster payment that provide payees with immediate access to funds, enabled by real-time final settlement between financial institutions. While instant payments have been around for many years across the globe, they are still relatively new in the U.S. The Real-time Payments (RTP) network was launched in 2017 and is managed by The Clearing House, a membership organization owned by the largest U.S. banks. It was the first new payment rail to be launched in the U.S. in the last 40 years. Any FDIC insured depository institution can join the RTP network. However, now the Federal Reserve System is in the process of launching a competing real-time payments solution called FedNow. The service, which is expected to help drive broad adoption and usage domestically, is scheduled to go live in July 2023 and is currently being piloted by about 100 financial institutions. Our guest, Nick Denning, explains why instant payments are important for community banks and how your bank can best prepare. Listen and enjoy!
