777. Insights: Will FedNow flop or not?

Benjamin Ensor is joined by some great guests from Orum and Consult Hyperion to talk about the recent launch of FedNow in the US and what the impact will be in the US and globally.

In this show Benjamin Ensor is asking: “Will FedNow flop or not?”

The US payments industry is currently abuzz following the launch of FedNow - the new instant-payment service backed by the Federal Reserve which launched on July 20th.

In historic terms, the launch is the first big upgrade of the US Central Bank’s system since the 1970s. We want to really lift the lid on the impact it could have on US payments, and where does this put the US against innovation in payments acorss the rest of the world?

This week's guests include:

  • Stephany Kirkpatrick, Founder & CEO, Orum
  • Sruti Jain, Senior Consultant - North America, Consult Hyperion
