Learn about the implications of stricter requirements for wire transfers and the benefits of better payments data quality in this article from ACAMS Today magazine.

Supports compliance with requirements for originator and beneficiary data

International regulation requires banks to monitor originator and beneficiary data in payments messages. Payments Data Quality provides an agreed set of validation rules based on FATF 16 and covering EU FTR 2015, MAS 226 and the US “Travel Rule”.

Provides for better transaction screening and straight-through processing

The reports can help with proactive data quality improvement, resulting in more effective screening and AML monitoring – and fewer processing issues and repairs.

A hosted, independent service

We’ve worked with the industry to develop this centrally hosted service that mutualises costs, and requires no installation or integration on-site.
