Leading banks and market infrastructures are placing an increased focus on adopting new payment rails to meet corporate customer demands for real-time payment solutions. We need to look no further that the EU Commission’s proposed mandate to ensure all EU & EAA citizens can receive instant payments within 6 months of the legislation being passed (12 months to send), SIC Instant Payments in Switzerland, new FedNow proposals and developments for the New Payments Architecture in the UK. Either way, financial institutions are becoming more aware of how real-time payments is driving global economies, as the world becomes more focused on global cross-border trade.
Another important element to meeting customer demands is streamlining real-time payment processes to focus on cashflow and revenue services, as well as retaining resilience and fraud prevention.
A renewed vigour in addressing issues with legacy architecture and transitioning to SaaS has been evident in addressing many key pain points experienced by banks and financial institutions as they look to ‘stake their claim’ within this increasingly competitive payments landscape.
