The Nordic card and payments markets are ranked amongst the world’s most developed. Although their economies have recovered well after the financial meltdown, they are still very much in a state of transformation when it comes to payment solutions.

It will examine how the industry is being forced to ‘reinvent’ itself in response to increasing competition and impeding regulatory requirements – (SEPA and MIF caps), security measures and more importantly, the increase in the demand for immediate payment systems particularly the adoption of mobile and near field communication (NFC) systems.
