by Chris Skinner

SEPA was created by Europe’s banks in 2002 in response toregulations and plans drawn up by the European Commission from ameeting in Lisbon at the turn of the millennium. Consequently, SEPAhas been assisted by new legislation, the PSD, which was agreed in2007. The implementation of SEPA takes place in 2008 within thebanking industry, with full operation in 2010, and will be amassive change to not just banking, but all aspects of finance andfinancial services across Europe and the globe.

This is because the vision for SEPA is that, by 2010, all europayments are treated in the same way as domestic payments. In otherwords, European citizens and corporations enjoy a transparentmarket where there is no difference in charges for payments betweenRome, Madrid, Paris and Munich. As a result, citizens, governmentsand corporations will have full access to finance transparentlyacross 15 countries today and potentially 31 tomorrow. A UnitedStates of Europe, fuelled by fully integrated financing, will bedifferent to the fragmented Europe of the past.

This book reviews the key implications and challenges of SEPAand the PSD across the European landscape, and the likely outcomesof SEPA for 2010 and beyond. The main themes that emerge are thatmany of Europe’s leading providers of paymentsinfrastructures, which are often bankowned, will disappear and newpayments providers and structures will emerge. Some of these willbe evolutions and some will be revolutions. In addition, there willbe major impacts upon those banks that cannot provide euro-servicescompetitively in this new geographically competitive environment.The winners will reap major rewards, but there will be far morelosers who will be merged or acquired.
