ISO 20022 - What Value Does it Provide? Banks, Corporates, Regulators? (I)

Session Description

Standardization makes things easier. The increasing adoption of the ISO 20022 standard is simplifying the business case for migrating to what is widely considered as the common language of financial telecommunications. But, what exactly is the value it provides? This session will make the case for Corporates, Financial Institutions, and Regulators to move away from exchanging data in proprietary formats which are experiencing reduced support. Normalizing this data into common standards via ISO 20022 will enhance the usability of analytics for treasury and finance teams, while supporting the automation of end-to-end processes. 


Key Take Aways: 


  • Attendees will be able to envision a standardized structure for corporate to bank communications
  • Develop a project lifecycle for migrating to ISO20022
  • Utilize a larger set of cash management and account management services
  • Automate payment initiation and reporting with standard controls.
