New high value payments solution offering
IBM Financial Transaction Manager (FTM) has announced its new High Value Payment (HVP) offering. This new HVP offering supports banking clients participating in new real-time gross settlement systems in Europe such as Target2 migration to ISO 20022 by end of 2021. Over 3,000 financial institutions worldwide offering SWIFT cross-border payments are required to migrate to ISO 20022 starting November 2022. These regulatory mandates signal a step change in payments infrastructure modernization.
Financial institutions embarking on ISO 20022 migration are concerned about lowering total cost of ownership and meeting the deadlines. They are also looking for ways to monetize the rich set of data available through ISO 20022 to create new revenue streams. As a result, they need a reliable technology platform which not only supports migration to the new messaging standard, but also provides tooling that can help monetize the content rich payments data from ISO 20022 messages.
Pre-built capabilities supporting Target2
IBM FTM for HVP has pre-built capabilities supporting Target2. By serving as a hub the offering can simplify payments processing across different payments environments. This new solution will soon be deployed at some big banks in Europe as part of their multi-year payments modernization journey with IBM. Future plans include evolving the solution into a robust multi-scheme HVP engine. The plan is to extend support to future market infrastructure requirements such as CHIPS and Fedwire.
The FTM platform developed with ISO 20022 standard in mind
IBM developed the FTM platform on the ISO 20022 standard from the start, to make the migration easier and cost effective for clients. Clients can leverage IBM Cloud Pak for Data, a fully integrated data and AI platform to analyse payments data to uncover consumer behaviour and payments patterns. Also, the FTM platform has points of integration to AI-powered solutions around payments fraud, AML, cash and liquidity management.
