Icon joins Euro Banking Association (EBA)
Icon Solutions has recently been announced as an Associate Member of the Euro Banking Association (EBA).
The EBA is a practitioners’ body for banks and other service providers supporting a pan-European vision for payments. Their mission is to provide payment professionals with a country-neutral forum for driving and contributing to the delivery of pan-European co-operative payment initiatives and business practices.
Tom Hay, Icon’s Head of Payments, said “We are delighted to have been approved by the EBA as an Associate Member. Payments is at the heart of Icon and the EBA is an excellent forum for us to continue to ensure that we are at the forefront of payments initiatives.”
Daniel Szmukler, EBA Director, said “With the commitment and practical support of our growing associate member community, EBA will continue deepening its footprint in the industry by helping to improve day-to-day payment practices and processes.”
Of the announcement, Tom Kelleher, Icon Director, said “As European member banks adopt SCTInst in 2017 and beyond, it’s important that Icon is closely aligned with the EBA. This allows us to adapt both our Instant Payments Framework (IPF) for SCTInst and our approach to helping clients become instant payments ready by the end of next summer.”
