Instant Payments

Innovative instant payment services are transforming the global financial landscape

Instant Payments

It is an exciting time to be working within the payments industry. The digital revolution has transformed the payments landscape and with the advancement of instant payments technology, the global consumer demand to be able to ‘pay and be paid in real-time’ is becoming a reality.

What began in the retail market and in the domestic sphere is expected to evolve into the corporate, B2B segment and cross-border space. Regulations, such as PSD2 are also driving innovation and new business models, while market initiatives, such as ISO 20022 standardisation are promoting collaboration and harmony.

Whilst approaches can differ, the key requirements and desire is the same – to deliver instant value, increase payment efficiency and to boost innovation.
