On September 9, 2015, the UK Payment Systems Regulator announced the full membership of the new Payments Strategy Forum. Ruth Evans was appointed chair of the Forum in July this year. The 21 new members, appointed for an initial period of two years, are comprised of individuals who are advocates for consumers, retailers, small and medium-sized businesses, corporations and government, as well as individuals from credit unions, e-money firms and high street banks that are experienced providers of payment services. The Forum has been established to set strategic priorities for the development of innovative payment systems.
