SWIFT gpi - Understanding the fundamentals of this new normal


Have you been concerned about slow and costly cross-border payments, lack of transparency and systemic inefficiencies in correspondent banking combined with continuously increasing pressure from your customers, who expect new and better services? Have you been concerned about the future and profitability of your Transaction Banking Business? This is why SWIFT, together with its banking community, has designed SWIFT gpi to set a new standard in cross-border payments. Banks are now able to provide their customers a faster service, transparency of fees, and end-to-end payments tracking similar to international parcel shipping companies. This session will consolidate your understanding about what gpi potentially means for your institution and for your customers, and give an overview on its supporting product suite: the Directory, Tracker, and Observer.

SWIFT gpi onboarding – Experiences from the field


This session looks at the actual implementation of SWIFT gpi, once you have made your decision ‘to become gpi’. What are the aspects to consider? What does the journey involve? What has been the experience of the early-moving banks, their challenges and best moments during the implementation, testing and go-live stages? How does SWIFT help banks throughout the onboarding process? What are the benefits already experienced by live banks at this early stage of gpi? Having implemented gpi, what are banks’ strategic views on gpi?

 

  • Steve Dumont, Head of SWIFT gpi On-boarding Services, SWIFT


This session includes experience sharing and active feedback from:

 

  • Raouf Soussi, Head of International Transactional Services, BBVA
  • Mauro Pernigo, Product development Global Transaction Banking, Intesa Sanpaolo
14:15-15:00

How smart use of data can support your gpi journey


The purpose of this session is to provide a better understanding on how you can leverage SWIFT Business Intelligence data throughout the entire gpi journey, how to establish priorities and streamline implementation and how to promote gpi to your key correspondents and corporates.  Your ultimate objective may be the internal optimisation of payments processing or the enhancement of your service portfolio with innovative services showing true leadership to your clients. In any case you will have to define upfront how to best prioritise gpi rollout across your different entities or payment corridors. You will need to track gpi adoption – as more and more of your counterparts ‘come on-board’ – and decide where and when to leverage gpi to your corporate and FI clients.

 

  • Marianna Janssen, SWIFT gpi expert EMEA, SWIFT

This session includes experience sharing and active feedback from:

The SWIFT gpi roadmap unveiled


SWIFT gpi banks have high ambitions: not only do they see gpi as the new normal for correspondent banking, but there are also concrete plans to leverage the cloud-based gpi tracker to provide the digital transformation of cross-border payments, improving the operational excellence for the banks even further. Plans are also in place to bring payments intelligence to the origin of the payment transaction chain, and use distributed ledger technology (DLT) to improve the reconciliation of nostro accounts in real time, optimising global liquidity.  After this session, you’ll be able to explain to your Cash Management, Operations and Compliance teams how a gpi-bank will be able to request cancellation of a payment more efficiently, how to improve STP through more ‘intelligence’ at the payment origin, how to send international payments with rich data, and how to cope with reconciliation and regulatory requirements  more easily with the gpi roadmap ahead of us.
