A Nordic initiative
The P27 Nordic Payments Platform is a Nordic initiative, through which the goal is to create shared, modern and future-proof infrastructure for payments in the Nordic region. This is a collaborative project involving the banking industry, with the objective of promoting trade between the Nordic countries by facilitating real-time, cross-border payments. For Handelsbanken, this represents a major initiative, and preparatory measures for the transformation that P27 will entail are currently a major focus area.
The existing infrastructure for payments is outdated, and a more flexible, modern platform is needed. As a customer, you will notice, and be able to benefit from, the changes that the P27 project will bring in the next few years.
Further down the page, you can find information about how P27 will affect you as a customer, the time schedule, and what you will need to do.
At present, the P27 Nordic Payments platform is awaiting the necessary licences from public authorities in order for its operations to start up. The information on this page is conditional upon the company being granted these licences.
You can read more about the new payments platform and the collaboration on the P27 website.
