Today, 23rd of September 2016 is a historic day in the Untied States in many ways. 40 years in the making, today marks the first day of what is being called Same Day ACH or SDA. Whilst it isn’t instant settlement, it is progress nonetheless.
I’m very pleased to have on our show Jordan Lampe who is the VP of Policy & Communication at Dwolla. Dwolla is payments related financial services company in Des Monies, Iowa. Dwolla also is one of the members of the Federal Reserve Task Force on Faster Payments initiative. The company already has a real-time mechanism for faster payments, aptly titled Fisync (as in Financial Sync) that enables real-time payment settlement amongst member banks.
