Payments Strategy Forum

A new opportunity to deliver innovation in payment systems

The Payments Strategy Forum (the Forum) was created to develop a strategy for payment systems in the United Kingdom.

It was announced by the Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) in Policy Statement 15/1 published in March 2015.

The Forum led on a process to identify, prioritise and help to design initiatives which make payment systems work better for those that use them.

The Forum consisted of an independent chair, service-user representatives and payment service providers. They were appointed jointly by the PSR and the Forum chair following a public nomination process during the summer of 2015.

The Bank of England (BoE), the Prudential Regulatory Authority (PRA), the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the PSR were observers on the Forum.

Its remit fulfilled, the Forum was disbanded in December 2017.
