There is significant innovation and competition afoot in the world of payments initiation, driven by consumers and corporates on the demand side, and traditional banks, fintechs and challengers on the supply side.
This is mirrored by what can reasonably be called a revolution in the world of clearing and settlement.

Financial institutions therefore need to find ways to provide compelling business services based on new methods of payment initiation and novel customer experiences, while keeping pace with the multiplicity of back-end clearing and settlement options – all while managing costs, staying ahead of compliance, and growing market share.
