On 8 October HPP co-hosted a seminar “Electric money in payment service business” together with Teleforum ry. The audience was made up of people working for telephone operators, mobile service businesses and payment system providers. During the event HPP’s partner Terho Nevasalo and Juha Eerikäinen, Senior Financial Supervisor with the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority, discussed the concept of electric money and which payment services are subject to regulation, whereas Paytrail Oyj and Enterpay Oy discussed their observation of the regulation of payment services and the challenges that it has entailed.
The seminar was the first event organized by Teleforum ry’s working group on electric payment since the establishment of the group in the summer 2014. The working group comprises of 11 member companies and its chairman is Terho Nevasalo.
The seminar was very well received by the audience. HPP and Teleforum ry will continue their collaboration during the course of the year 2015.
