Episode 43 – Making Money Fly over Borders – ISO 20022, the IPFA, and Faster International Payments

POF Podcast

Faster payments, B2B payments, international remittances, cross-currency, and cross-border payments. These are hot topics and major challenges the payments industry must address. Central to all is the ability to represent, in an interoperable fashion, the information that surrounds the payment itself. What’s this payment for? Who is it for? Where’s it going? These are information gaps that bedevil B2B payments and all of the above. Extensible standards in general and ISO 20022 in particular are the answer.

The International Payments Framework Association (IPFA) is dedicated to expanding the utility of ISO 20022 through rule building around the usage of this data representation method. Standardized business messages are huge and that’s what the standard and the IPFA are all about. In this podcast, the IPFA’s CEO, Glenbrook’s own Elizabeth McQuerry, addresses ISO 20022 itself, the IPFA’s role, and updates to accommodate international faster payments. Cross-border money may finally fly.
