In the wake of the technological, regulatory and competitive challenges that the payments sector is currently facing, particularly in Portugal, an open market economy with unique features in the European payments landscape, ANIPE emerged as a project aiming to promote competitive advantages for its members.

The Association intends to adopt a collaborative model to foster the development of the payments sector in Portugal, promoting the inclusion and cooperation among all stakeholders, namely regulators and incumbents, with the purpose of anticipating and leveraging European legislation as an opportunity to assist the national market to become a reference for innovation, growth and talent in the payments industry.

Another of ANIPE’s intents is to participate and represent the national market in European and International forums, ensuring a permanent contact with its counterparts and encouraging the sharing of best practices among its associates and with global market leaders as well.
