Bank of America, BNP Paribas and PostFinance have become the latest organisations to join Mobey Forum, the not-for-profit organisation to define a sustainable and prosperous mobile financial services ecosystem.
Joining Mobey Forum as full members, these financial institutions will actively engage in the work of the association to accelerate the mass market deployment of mobile financial services. They will contribute to Mobey Forum’s dedicated task forces, workgroups and member meetings. These focussed sessions aim to identify ways to educate the market through the creation of accessible collateral such as white papers, encourage debate and interaction on the realisation of mobile payments, share knowledge as markets converge, as well as identify and promote industry best practice.
Ron van Wezel, chairman of Mobey Forum and director of emerging payment streams at Deutsche Bank, said: “It is an honour for Mobey Forum to welcome such respected and renowned names to its continually growing membership ranks. Their knowledge base and wealth of skills and experiences will add value to the in-depth analysis that is currently being executed to achieve user-convenient and profitable mobile financial services.”
