UK: Payment Systems Regulator Consults on Its Proposed Approach to Profitability Analysis

On July 11, 2019, the Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) published consultation paper MR18/1.6 on its proposed approach to the profitability analysis, forming part of its market review into the supply of card-acquiring services.

The aim of this consultation is to seek public feedback in relation to the approach the PSR proposes to adopt for assessing the profitability of card-acquiring services, which in turn will help the regulator understand how competition in the respective market functions.
