This Course will build on knowledge gained from the Payment Systems Operation course, covering the governance, oversight and regulation of core payment and settlement systems [Retail Payment Systems (RPS) and Large Value Payment Systems (LVPS)]. 
It will review some of the important aspects of regulating PSS, extending the coverage to cross-border issues, foreign exchange settlement, and recent trends in market infrastructure improvement.  It will also focus on the new challenges posed by cryptocurrencies and related technical payment innovations, and how Central Banks should regulate these.


Through lectures, interactive discussions, case studies and sharing of experiences from the various delegates' countries, participants will learn about the fundamental concepts of oversight on LVPS and RPS, in line with leading standards and national policy objectives. The course will also cover the latest developments in FinTech, mobile payments and cryptocurrencies, as well as emerging risks and challenges confronting both LVPS and RPS. Participants will develop an understanding on how such trends and innovations impact Central Banks in carrying out their PSS oversight functions.

Target Participants

The course is aimed at mid-level officers or technical staff, with at least two years working experience of payment and settlement operations, policy, oversight, risk profiling and management, or IT supervision. Participants should have basic knowledge of payment and settlement concepts and operations.
