  • Former Visa CEO Joins Kash - "I doubt there are more than a handful of people who know as much about payments in the US as Joe Saunders.

  • FDIC-Insured Institutions Earn $43 Billion in Second Quarter 2015 - "Commercial banks and savings institutions insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) reported aggregate net income of $43.0 billion in the second quarter of 2015, up $2.9 billion (7.3 percent) from a year earlier and the highest quarterly income on record. The increase in earnings was mainly attributable to a $3.6 billion rise in net operating revenue (net interest income plus total noninterest income). Financial results for the second quarter of 2015 are included in the FDIC's latest Quarterly Banking Profile released today."

  • Retailers Urge Appeals Court to Make Federal Reserve Follow the Law - The Merchants Payments Coalition, a group of merchants fighting for a more competitive and transparent bank-card industry, said today: “Judge Leon struck a blow for fairness with his original ruling.

We look forward to that court reaffirming the Durbin Amendment as passed and sending the Federal Reserve back to the drawing board to ensure it actually follows the law.”
  • "NRF Asks Appeals Court to Uphold Order for Lower Swipe Fee Cap - "The National Retail Federation today asked an appeals court to uphold a judge’s ruling that the Federal Reserve set its cap on debit card swipe fees far higher than intended by Congress and that the cap needs to be recalculated at a lower level."
  • Retailers Comment On The Data Security Act - "PIN-and-chip cards are widely used across the globe, and it’s time for the bankcard industry in the United States to adopt that technology to better protect our consumers. We must transition away from 1960s technology and adopt a 21st century system that will help reduce and prevent fraud and protect customers from the threat posed by sophisticated cybercriminals, hackers and data thieves."
