The Payments Association welcomes the publication of the HM Treasury's Economic Crime Plan 2019-2022

The Payments Association welcomes the publication of the government’s Economic Crime Plan 2019-2022 and was pleased to have attended a meeting with the Treasury before the publication and to be have recently become a member of the Joint Fraud Taskforce. The Payments Association has a critical role to play in representing the range of financial institutions from the large to small, as only the larger banks appear to be involved directly with shaping the plans moving forward. The Payments Association also represents many members who offer leading-edge technology to fight economic crime which will be crucial to keep pace with and combat criminals who increasingly use technology to commit their activities.

About the Payments Association:

The Payments Association, established in 2008, connects the payments ecosystem, encourages innovation and drives profitable business growth for payments companies. Our goals are to strengthen and expand the payments industry to the benefit of all stakeholders.

It achieves this by delivering a comprehensive programme of activities for members with help from an independent Advisory Board, which addresses key issues impacting the industry. These activities include:

  • 12-month events programme
  • Annual Black-Tie award ceremony
  • Leading industry change projects
  • Lobbying activities
  • Training and development
  • Research, reports and white papers

The Payments Association is over 140 members strong and growing at 30% annually. Our members come from across the payments value chain; including payments schemes, banks and issuers, merchant acquirers, PSPs, retailers and more. These companies have come together, from across the UK and internationally, to join our association, collaborate and speak with a unified voice.

This response was delivered as an output from the Payments Association’s Project Financial Crime. Project Financial Crime delivers community-driven activity to address the problems posed by digital and financial criminal activity, shapes industry policy and approach, and positions the Payments Association and its members as leaders in tackling financial crime. Project Financial Crime is supported by its Benefactor, Refinitiv.
