In recent years Lafferty conferences have predicted de-globalisation and the splintering of the international payments order — leading us to give this conference the theme Thriving in the New World Disorder. This event will lead the way in knowledge sharing for the retail banking and cards and payments industries in a fracturing world.

With a day one theme of New Alliances, New Networks, New Challenges and a day two theme exploring Design and Technology in the Digital World, our programme will include national and international industry leaders. The event will present an opportunity for partners to strategically position their brands both in the UK and globally.


ClearBank is the first clearing bank to enter the UK market in more than 250 years.

ClearBank is regulated and authorised and is on track to open its doors in Autumn 2017 to financial services providers, FCA-regulated businesses and Fintechs that require access to UK payment systems and core banking technology to support current account capabilities.

Free from the constraints of legacy technology, built on a combination of public and private cloud infrastructure, ClearBank delivers open access to payment, current account and transactional clearing services. Financial services organisations, from banks and building societies through to new challenger banks and Fintechs will be able to process payments and offer new competitive transactional banking services more cost effectively, efficiently and quickly than ever before possible.

You can include up to three people in each booking. Please use the form below to detail each person attending, along with their dietary and accessibility requirements. To register more than three people, please contact Dara McNally at the details above. Group discount of 10% available.
