The Faster Payments Task Force will engage in advancing the work outlined in "Strategies for Improving the U.S. Payments System," which was published by The Federal Reserve in January 2015. The Faster Payments Task Force itself was launched in March 2015, and will identify and evaluate alternative approaches for implementing safe, ubiquitous, faster payment capabilities in the United States. The more-than-350 member committee met for the first time in June and will continue to hold meetings through the rest of the year.

Faster Payments Task Force member Matt Carberry joined The Bancorp in 2008 and has been collaborating with and helping empower large-scale payments aggregators in the bill payment, funds transfer, merchant processing, payroll and fintech industries. His primary focus has been leveraging existing infrastructures and building new systems to develop greater efficiency of payments while improving risk mitigation. Matt is a member of NACHA's Council for Electronic Billing and Payments.

"It's a great honor to be joining this important new Task Force," said Carberry. "We know that any new payments system has to benefit all parties involved in order to have staying power; this new task force is a tremendous opportunity for all of us involved to make the important recommendations that will make our payment system fairer, faster and safer."

As a significant player in the payments arena, we have a unique perspective that arises from interacting daily with consumers making payments, businesses accepting payments, and the processors who support them.
