PSD2 presents a huge opportunity for new payment providers and intermediaries by opening up the market to competition and many firms will be investing in their business models to take advantage. Whilst the UK remains part of the EU, it is required to implement PSD2 on 13 January 2018 and it is preparing to do so. Beyond Brexit, these firms can take comfort that the UK is already a frontrunner and supporter for many of the policy objectives behind PSD2, such as the Competition and Market Authority's Open Banking Initiative that will allow third party access to banking data. As such, a reversal of PSD2 looks unlikely.

Kenya Airways is set to unveil a big capital restructuring. The news comes at a challenging time for the industry. At the start of this month, Alitalia went into special administration in Italy and last weekend British Airways was at the mercy of its IT systems. Customers expect more, but want to pay less in a highly competitive market where discretionary spend is on the wane. It remains to be seen how successful Kenya Airlines' restructuring is, but it is unlikely to be the last airline restructuring this year.
