WHF Brown Bag Lunch: Payment Innovations – Faster, Easier, Well protected?

Payment options and systems in the U.S. are quickly evolving. Are consumers ready? Are regulations keeping up? Join us to discuss new survey research from the Pew Charitable Trusts about consumer sentiment and decision-making; when various payment types are protected –  or not – against loss of funds; and what this could mean for the industry as consumers choose whether to use new fintech solutions or stay with traditional ones.    

Rachel Siegel, Senior Associate at Pew Charitable Trusts 
Julia Dempewolf, Associate at Mayer Brown
