Payments systems around the world are evolving rapidly. Innovations in information technology, changes in end user expectations, and increasing complexity in the payment landscape mean that all stakeholders likely need to reassess their mid to long-term strategy. The Federal Reserve refreshed its strategic direction for payments in 2012. Extensive research and stakeholder interviews were conducted in the following four categories: ubiquitous and faster payments, security enhancements, improvements to cross-border payments, and efficiency in business and consumer payments. The Federal Reserve will share a roadmap for pursuing desired improvements, and discuss next steps in industry collaboration to create the U.S. payments system of the future.
