Mobey Forum, a bank-led organization for the advancement of mobile commerce, has welcomed its first non-banking Full Member – northern European payment solutions provider Nets.
Mobey Forum has also announced that it has opened full membership to all supervised payment institutions.
“In order to effectively drive the evolution of the mobile financial services ecosystem Mobey Forum must continue to recognize the importance of fostering dialogue between all stakeholders in the value chain,” added van Wezel. “By opening up full membership to all financially regulated companies, Mobey Forum is providing a range of different stakeholders with voting rights and the possibility of joining its Board of Directors to exert greater influence on the organisation’s strategic direction.”
Mobey Forum’s new Articles of Association also define a new “institutional membership,” designed to encourage the participation of not-for-profit bodies in a variety of related sectors, including academia, government and transport.
