At NCC, we offer the ultimate MSB resources: robust compliance programs, innovative technology, and reliable banking partners. We are always one step ahead of the curve and often implement new requirements long before they are mandated by FinCEN. As a client of NCC, you can rest assured that we are doing the research and will keep you up to date with the latest in MSB compliance and banking. Below, we have compiled some additional online MSB resources where you can read about the latest trends and stay up to date on the news. This is not a comprehensive list, but it is a wonderful place to start if you are in the money service business industry.
National Money Transmitters Association (NMTA)
The NMTA is a trade association focused on the regulations that affect money transmitters. David Landsman has been at the helm as Executive Director since 2004 and continues to work to unite the MSB community and protect its access to banking services.
The Daily News Clippings email is a wonderful MSB resource and an easy way to stay up to date about our industry. When you sign-up for it, you will receive a daily email with a note from David and a run down of the top news stories and opinion pieces in our industry currently.
While the DNC email is open to the public, the association also offers premium content and offerings for their paying members. NMTA members enjoy exclusive access to resources, events, and training.
Financial Crime Enforcement Network (FinCEN)
The United States Department of the Treasury’s Financial Crime Enforcement Network is the leading authority on all things related to the financial regulation of MSBs. The MSB homepage on their website is a great MSB resource where you can find notices, updates, and announcements on regulations for money service businesses.
Their website includes links for MSB registration, a glossary of MSB terms, and other useful MSB resources that are valuable to both novice and veteran money service business operators. If you have a question about regulation and how it affects your business, this is a great place to start your research.
The pymnts website is a financial technology and payments news hub. While not all of their stories are relevant to money service businesses, they are applicable to our non traditional financial services industry. Pyments chronicles “what’s next in payments and commerce” with a curated selection of product and system reviews, analysis of the industry, and market projections.
Data, research, and indexes are just some of the MSB resources available for readers who want a more detailed look into the landscape of payments. Their “What PYMNTS is Researching” section organizes their latest findings and articles by topic for an easy in depth reading experience.
Mobile Payments Today
The Mobile Payments Today website features a round-up of information and trends for the mobile payments and financial technology industries. If you have your eye on the future of money transfer and the mobile wallet boom, this is a great place to stay up to date.
Their articles include run downs on the latest in Apple Pay and in depth conversations with payment execs to global predictions and insight into the inner workings of mobile money. The site also serves as a bulletin board for other MSB resources, like their events, webinars, and white papers.
