An on-demand Finextra Webcast, with Citi, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank, RBS and Oracle.
Global transaction banking has gone through a tremendous amount of change over the past few years. What was once an underappreciated section of the bank, global transaction banking is now considered one of the few stable, profit-making business in the banking fraternity. In addition to a rise in status, organisational and regulatory upheaval have dominated business and IT strategy for many organisation.
2014 may be the year global transaction banks look beyond their core offerings and enter global partnerships, expand services and devote IT budgets to creating completive advantage instead of just complying with regulations.
