    Preparing you for the future of payments

    ISO 20022 brings faster, more transparent transactions. We can help you understand the implications & benefits

Migrating to ISO 20022

The global payments sector is entering a new era. The adoption of ISO 20022 – a global and open messaging language for payments – will bring richer data and more detailed information to the financial services industry.

The move to ISO 20022 is being championed by SWIFT and adopted by major payment market infrastructures for high-value payments systems and cross-border payments across the world. And with ISO 20022 set to dominate high-value payments (supporting approximately 80% of volumes and 90% of transaction values worldwide over the next few years), this shift will have a wider impact across financial services than any other current initiative.

The global HVPS+ taskforce has published a roadmap towards ISO 20022 harmonisation, setting a common standard for payment data. SWIFT’s cross-border payments and reporting (CBPR+) working group has also published usage guidelines for adopting ISO 20022. Nonetheless, implementation will have differing implications for corporates and financial institutions – and we’re here to help with your transition.
