How Challenger FMIs are revolutionising Cross-border Payments?

 

Thursday 23rd June 2022

Cross-border payments have always been in the spotlight. They have been criticized for being slow and costly, unable to cope with the demands for efficient payments among individuals, firms and financial institutions from different jurisdictions. 

Challenger financial market infrastructures are trying to solve this long-lived claim for efficient cross-border payments. New technologies, along with access to flexible and affordable computing services have encouraged the development of solutions that aim to fulfil the demand for better retail and wholesale cross-border payments. 

In this session of the FMI Broadcast, we are going to talk about how Arf and RTGS.global envision efficient solutions that could revolutionize retail and wholesale cross-border payments with Kazım Rıfat Ozyılmaz, Co-Founder of Arf, and Dave Sissens, Chief Executive Officer of RTGS.global
