What’s Next For Safeguarding of Customer Funds?

Despite the disruption of a global pandemic, payments regulation has shown no sign of slowing down. Events such as the Wirecard scandal and the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) identifying numerous shortcomings at payment providers draw attention to the safeguarding of customer funds as well as other regulatory issues for payment companies. Although these headlines eventually lose prominence, the consequences of these developments weigh heavily as undoubtedly regulatory change soon follows.
