Disbursements Tracker – October 2020
October 14, 2020
How should treasurers adapt their operations to ensure that they can provide their business clients with the speed and security they need to manage payments and disbursements in today’s changing financial environment?
“In today’s changing financial environment, bank treasury executives should be thinking about the concept of ‘future-proofing’ their offerings for their clients by partnering with leading FinTechs that can iterate solutions to the challenges… banks’ corporate customers face both now and continuously into the future. Modernizing payments today is a start, but keeping things current and modern tomorrow is an ongoing challenge.
The right FinTech partner will continuously invest the time to engage and listen to the individual pain points corporates face and then quickly innovate subscription-based solutions that support the bank’s relationships and solve the challenges their institutional clients face. An example would be continuously expanding one-to-many gateway solutions to relevant payment types in consumers’ wallets without the need for the bank to invest in direct integrations. Another example could be continuously updating business process solutions for the corporates that enable great customer experiences and drive adoption in a rapidly changing world of consumer expectations, such as payee payment choice and 24/7 year-round, on-demand disbursements.
Large banks by design entrench deep pillars of safety and security into their operations and offerings to safeguard extremely large asset pools and extensive capital markets and credit facilities with enterprise clients. Change is a function of evolution for a large bank, not iteration. FinTech partners can provide that iterative layer, keeping the bank current and relevant while the evolution happens at a bank’s pace.
As the pace of change and innovation in the world of payments and banking continues to accelerate with challengers on many fronts, the right FinTech partnerships can enable the largest banks to stay current, keep their customers and thrive.”
