Why should banks, FIs and Corporates prioritise SWIFT gpi implementation?
You can’t afford to NOT be a part of the SWIFT gpi network:
4275+ financial institution signed up to SWIFT gpi as if February 2022. 1830 gpi members are ‘live’ with gpi credit transfers covering 151 of the world’s 180 currencies. Every day 1 million cross border payments worth $493bn are sent over gpi across 2940+ country corridors.
Your customers are demanding it:
Corporate customers have threatened to switch banks if they don’t get it e.g. 100% of corporate clients of one European bank onboards all ask for details on what SWIFT gpi offerings are available and they can track this via this via the GPI Tracker, GPI Observer & the GPI Directory. Therefore, banks and FIs that aren’t performing well will be exposed.
SWIFT gpi can improve your operational efficiency:
SWIFT gpi has the potential to improve an institution’s internal processes and save them valuable money and resources. Added transparency will enable your customers to ‘self-serve’ - “it eliminates manual intervention and reduces customer investigations by 50 percent, saving on the cost of resources” (SWIFT Global Payments Innovation Report, August 2018).
There is also the opportunity to build new services and revenue streams:
By leveraging the tracker data and solving for IS0 20022, financial institutions can offer more innovative solutions such as real-time payments and open banking.
What are Universal Confirmations and how are they different to SWIFT gpi?
Universal Confirmations is a SWIFT mandate that needs to be met by November 2020 (available since November 2019) which requires every single customer payment (MT 103 on FIN) has a confirmation that the funds have been credited to the end beneficiary account.
Confirming payments gives you access to the Basic Tracker.
Through the basic tracker you will be able to see the status of your inbound and outbound payments, have visibility of when clients are credited and the confirmed amount. This can be of significant value to your client service teams that are looking to improve customer experience and deliver faster, and clearer reconciliations of payment queries.
