Session Title:  Instant Payments Update

Hear from Reed Luhtanen, Executive Director and CEO of the U.S. Faster Payments Council who will provide an overview of faster payments solutions in the United States. The session will dig into the properties of different faster payments rails, with particular focus on the newest rails: FedNow and the RTP Network from The Clearing House. We will cover use cases, benefits, and risks associated with instant payments adoption and usage. 

Reed Luhtanen is Executive Director of the U.S. Faster Payments Council (FPC). The FPC is an industry-led  membership organization whose mission is to facilitate a world-class payment system where Americans  can safely and securely pay anyone, anywhere, at any time and with near-immediate funds availability.  Reed is responsible for managing the daily operations of the organization and working with the FPC  board and membership to execute on the FPC’s strategic plan while ensuring inclusive and transparent  dialogue with all FPC stakeholders. FPC members include business end-users, consumer organizations,  financial institutions, payment network operators, technology providers, and others. 

Reed has extensive experience in the payments industry and has served on myriad industry bodies, most  recently an officer on the FPC Board of Directors; the Federal Reserve-sponsored Governance Framework Formation Team, which created the U.S. Faster Payments Council; and the Corporate  Advisory Group for The Clearing House’s Real-Time Payments System. Prior to joining the FPC, he spent  15 years at Walmart, departing as senior director of global treasury, where he was responsible for the  company’s payments-related public policy and public relations initiatives, network and processor  relationships, and establishing Walmart’s payments acceptance strategies. 

In 2015, Reed was recognized as one of PayBefore’s “Top Ten Payments Lawyers” and The Electronic  Transactions Association honored him as a member of its “Forty Under 40” class in 2019. He has a B.A.  in Political Science from the University of Arkansas’ Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences and a J.D.  from the University of Arkansas School of Law. He is based in Bentonville, AR.
