whats new financial channel?

he idea of mobile financial services has been a hot topic for a while now with many excursions into mobile finance from both banks and telco’s, with some successes and many failures.

More often than not we are now seeing successes, with mobile finance ranging from simple person-to-person payments via short text messages; to contactless payments on the underground through Barclaycard’s partnership with O2 and Oyster; to full financial services through Monitise’s infrastructure behind HSBC, Royal Bank of Scotland and Lloyds Banking Group.

What is the latest state of play?
