Quantifying the economic benefits of payments modernization: the case of Canada’s large-value payment system
The authors analyze the economic benefits of the replacement of Canada’s large-value transfer system (LVTS) with the new system, Lynx.
The authors employ historical LVTS and ACSS data and use the discrete choice demand estimation approach to uncover end users’ and financial institutions’ preferences when deciding which payment instruments and payment systems, respectively, to use.
