Our work in financial services is primarily linked to payment systems infrastructure. Payment transactions are central to the functioning of society and, like CEPA's work in other sectors, our policy recommendations impact on the public.
CEPA has worked on a range of issues around this essential infrastructure regarding innovation and competition.
We have been involved in understanding the impact of regulation and changes to market dynamics on the industry and the implications for consumers. This includes understanding linkages between different payment infrastructures and the implications of innovation on how the sector operates.
