Digitalisation has a fundamental impact on the way consumers and corporations do business with each other – and also on how they exchange money and information. The digitalisation of all aspects of doing business is driving change in the relationship between financial institutions, global businesses, payment operators and their customers—with growing impacts on International payments. Despite rapid market growth, international payments have been hampered by country-specific regulations, while transactions being channeled through intermediary banks can take days to complete and often come with unexpected fees, the overall integration into customers’ value chains is poor. It’s clear that there is substantial room for improvement.
The lack of effective cross-border payments infrastructure has created opportunities for payment operators and innovators to introduce alternatives to traditional banks for people to send money in-continent, for buying and selling across borders and to send remittances to their dependents.
