The Bancorp Releases Third Finetics™ Studio Interview Series: “The Future of Faster Payments and Innovation”

7 January 2016

Exclusive Interviews Feature Janet O. Estep, Rahul Gupta, Sean Rodriguez and Matt Carberry

The Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: TBBK), today announces the release of its next Finetics™ Studio interview series: “The Future of Faster Payments and Innovation” featuring Janet O. Estep, CEO, NACHA—The Electronic Payments Association; Rahul Gupta, Group President, Billing and Payments, Fiserv; Sean Rodriguez, Faster Payments Strategy Leader and Senior Vice President, Federal Reserve System; and Matt Carberry, Vice President Business Development, Payments, The Bancorp.

Filmed from the Money20/20 show floor, the exclusive interviews feature conversations with industry insiders on the current status and future evolution of faster payments and the implications of changes on consumer and businesses alike.

“We are learning that it’s about real-time in every way and we should modernize our payments systems to reflect that,” said Rodriguez. “There are huge benefits to having consumers and businesses manage their financial lives in real-time.”

“The challenge is not only moving payments faster or in real-time but also having everyone move them in the same way, as well as being able to move the information attached to the payments at the same time, so you can complete the payment process,” added Estep. “Having payments with information is part of what we have with ACH today, so thinking about how much information can flow with the payment in real-time is one of the things that everyone needs to start working through.”

The release of these four videos supports The Bancorp’s Finetics™ Studio video series, which features one-on-one conversations with more than 30 of the financial services industry’s most influential and innovative executives, launched late last year.

The interviews, conducted by Sarah Gill, senior reporter with PaymentEye, cover topics ranging from the future of payments innovation to financial inclusion and the customer experience to fraud and will be released on The Bancorp’s throughout early 2016.
