Challenging liquidity management in wholesale cross-border payments


Thursday, 22nd September 2022


| Jan Schoombee, Fnality



Financial markets face unprecedented challenges. These challenges include fragmented and inefficient post-trade processes, liquidity constraints and complex and costly risk management.

To address these challenges, Fnality is developing a peer-to-peer payment system underpinned by Distributed Ledger Technology to enable quicker and safer exchanges of value.

In session #5 of The FMI Broadcast, Jan Schoombee (Fnality) joined FNA to discuss the success of a project exploring liquidity savings calculations and what this means for banks looking to optimise their balance sheet.


The session covered:

  • The role Fnality plays in the cross-border wholesale industry
  • The key challenges of cross-border payments
  • The advantages FMIs like Fnality offer in terms of cost and efficiencies compared to traditional correspondent banking
  • How Fnaility addressed the design and build phases of its cross-border wholesale payments solution
  • Whether crypto solutions or stablecoins could become large and liquid enough to manage large payments
  • How the wholesale cross-border payment ecosystem is likely to evolve
