Composition of the Forum

The Forum currently consists of a chair which is independent of industry and 22 members appointed jointly by the PSR and the Forum chair.

Members serve in their individual capacity and include advocates for consumers, retailers, small and medium sized businesses, corporations, government, as well as individuals who are experienced providers of payment services, from credit unions, e-money firms and high street banks.

They have been selected for their expertise and ability to shape and influence strategy in the payments industry.

At the time of their appointment, it was acknowledged that all Members had a degree of conflict of interest. Where additional conflicts of interest emerge during the Forum's deliberations, the Forum will consider the circumstances on a case-by-case basis and recommend a suggested course of action.
