The Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) has recently announced updates to its legislation in a positive and bold move to aid the fight against APP fraud.

The announcement has put the onus on the banks to solve the issue, a contradiction to a recent LexisNexis® Risk Solutions survey which indicated that 94 per cent of financial services providers think fraud prevention should be taught as part of the National Curriculum to help customers protect their money from scammers. Fundamentally, the new legislation will cause the smaller challenger banks to be more conscious since they have a higher percentage of mule accounts per genuine customer; it is imperative that the entire ecosystem is supported and informed to ensure that financially excluded individuals are not marginalised in the process, further than they already may be.

The hope for the new PSR legislation is to make banks more determined to focus on improving security around payments and for technology to be orchestrated in aid of the customer.

Find out more in this webinar, hosted by LexisNexis® Risk Solutions, on how the financial ecosystem may change in the short and long term, and explore:

  • The transformation activity required on banks and financial institutions to comply with and support an ecosystem of timely reimbursements.
  • Why balancing the bank’s risk appetite for screening outbound and inbound payments, whilst also assessing their customer base to proactively identify mule accounts, could be challenging. 
  • Who will be impacted the most by the liability shift? 
  • The potential reputational damage, and what is the answer.
