The Global Money Transfer Summit (GMTS), is the most recognised conference in the money transfer industry. Bringing together innovators, disruptors and stakeholder to explore the challenges and opportunities in the remittance industry.

• Regulations -the continuing regulatory challenges - How are the PSD2 and GDPR working in practice? Does it serve as a model for the rest of the world?
