U.S. Faster Payments Council (Silver)
The Path To Faster Payments Ubiquity Starts With You. Do you want a hand in shaping the future of the nation’s payments system? The U.S. Faster Payments Council (FPC) is a new membership organization established so Americans can safely and securely pay anyone, anywhere, at any time and with near-immediate funds availability. FPC members use private-sector approaches to address issues that inhibit adoption of faster payments, and enable end users to reach each other in ways as seamless and transparent to them as mobile texting. The FPC gives members an edge in navigating the evolving faster payments landscape. Focus on the larger goals of safety, security and adoption of all faster payments. Opportunities to broaden their reach and leverage investments across a much broader base of transactions. Safe forums for dialogue governed by strong antitrust guard rails.
