In The Banker Masterclass video series, we discuss payments standards co-existence, SMEs and Swift Go, interlinking payments systems, and the future of blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

The Banker Masterclass is sponsored by Deutsche Bank but independently edited 

Does the future of cross-border payments rely on improvements with existing payment rails and Swift infrastructure, or should the industry be looking at blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies?

    In discussion:

    A period of coexistence: The challenges, as well as strategies for moving forward that cross-border payments providers will face over the next three years. 

    Swift Go for SMEs: The major transformations in cross-border payments since the introduction of GPI back in 2017. 

    Interlinking instant payment schemes: Potentially interlinking instant payments schemes. 

    Have you considered the blockchain?: The potential of blockchain technology and the use cases which could be of benefit to the industry as a whole
