Four banks commit to Cable & Wireless nostro utility

15 May 2003  |  4768 views  |  0 global_5

ANZ, Barclays, JPMorgan Chase and Mizuho Corporate Bank are to adopt Cable & Wireless Real Time Nostro solution as the standard infrastructure for sharing nostro account information between financial institutions and other organisations.

Cable & Wireless Real Time Nostro is a subscription-based, online service developed using software from Gresham Computing and designed to provide financial institutions with a real time, consolidated view of their international transactions and balance details.

Scheduled to be operational in October 2003, the four clearing banks say that they will act as a channel to market for the centralised utility and supply data for it.

The initiative comes at a time of increasing demands for a standardised industry solution for the exchange of real time nostro/vostro account and related transaction information. Such a solution would enable intraday management of payment transactions across currencies and faster error detection and resolution - both critical in a business environment contrained by liquidity management issues.

Andrew Walton-Green, chief executive of Gresham says: "The adoption of Cable & Wireless Real Time Nostro by these leading banks is a major step towards establishing this service as the de facto standard for sharing nostro account information."

The Cable & Wireless group respresents a subset of a larger collective of 18 banks which has been collaborating with interbank messaging network Swift on the creation of a decentralised bilateral model for bank-to-bank data exchange.
