Combine the power of Swift GPI with domestic real-time payments infrastructure

Customers today expect their international payments to be as seamless and fast as their domestic ones. That means payments made in seconds, with real-time confirmation of credit.  

However, when there are multiple banks involved in the payment chain, and the final leg needs to be cleared within the recipient country, the domestic payments are sometimes delayed owing to the limited operating hours of the local clearing systems.

With the advent of real-time payments systems, which typically operate 24/7, there is an opportunity to remove these last frictions and ensure that these payments are credited in seconds rather than hours.
