SWIFT Go Builds Momentum as 100+ Banks Sign Up for Service That Powers SME and Consumer Payments

Share

SWIFT today announces that 100 banks around the world have signed up for SWIFT Go since it went live in July, underscoring strong demand for the service that enables small businesses and consumers to send fast, predictable, highly secure and competitively priced low-value cross-border payments from their bank accounts. Ten banks are already live with SWIFT Go, most recently Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan Chase, and China Minsheng Bank, representing 41 million low-value cross-border payments a year.

SWIFT Go is a key building block in the co-operative’s strategy to enable instant and frictionless transactions across its network of more than 11,000 institutions and 4 billion accounts in 200 countries. And it has the potential to be transformative in enabling greater financial inclusivity, supporting SMEs in emerging economies and individuals sending remittances internationally.

The service leverages the high-speed rails of SWIFT gpi, which have transformed the speed and predictability of high-value cross-border payments, to strengthen the capabilities of banks to serve their customers in the high-growth small business and consumer segments. Payments sent via SWIFT Go are fast – with the fastest completing in seconds – secure and predictable, with upfront transparency on fees.

Stephen Gilderdale, Chief Product Officer, SWIFT said: “SWIFT Go has been enthusiastically received by institutions and their customers since launch as it transforms the way SMEs and consumers make payments across borders through the banking system. When integrated in banks' customer channels, SWIFT Go provides a best-in-class user experience that is fast, predictable and competitively priced. There is a clear demand for the benefits it enables, and we look forward to working with our community to extend SWIFT Go even further as we continue to progress with our strategy.”

Dr. Xu Jie, Deputy General Manager of Transaction Banking Department, China Minsheng Bank and Vice-chairman of the China International Chamber of Commerce Banking Committee said: “According to our analysis, the remittance cost-to the U.S. using the SWIFT Go channel is more than 30% lower than traditional channels. Minsheng Bank is prepared to launch SWIFT Go in all channels, which will give great banking support to our SME and retail customers. We encourage more peer banks to join SWIFT Go to expand and continue building this network for future cross-border payments.”

Marc Recker, Global Head of Product, Institutional Cash Management,Deutsche Bank said: “At Deutsche Bank, we are well aware that SMEs and consumers value upfront transparency speed, and security when making payments internationally. It is with this in mind that we are excited to go live with SWIFT Go and to offer our customers a bespoke service that will radically improve the way they make low-value transactions across borders.”

Shirish Wadivkar, Global Head of Payments, Standard Chartered said: “We are excited to be part of SWIFT Go, which supports our strategy to deliver better and differentiated payment experiences. Our SME and Retail clients will value a service that aims to provide seamless, fast and predictable low value international payments.”

George Doolittle, MD and Head of Global Payment Services, Wells Fargo said: “SWIFT Go leverages the strength of SWIFT gpi with a stricter multilateral service level and central reporting engine, vastly improving the end-to-end client experience, reducing friction, and enabling banks to more effectively serve the lower value cross border payments needs of their retail and small business clients. As a leading financial services company and the largest originator into the U.S. ACH system, Wells Fargo has supported this initiative since its inception.”

Hogan Lovells White Paper Calls for Flexibility as the EU Establishes Its First-ever Regulatory Framework Enabling the Launch of Autonomous Vehicles20.10.2021 12:50:00 CEST | Press release

Global law firm Hogan Lovells has today shared its recommendations on the future of Europe’s regulatory framework for autonomous vehicles (AVs), as the European Commission takes an important first step in submitting a Draft EU ADS Regulation to all 27 Member States ahead of a Public Consultation in November. The regulatory framework published in late September 2021 will be used to help shape the future of AVs across the EU and will have far reaching implications on the AV industry in Europe for years to come. The Draft EU ADS Regulation sets out the type-approval rules for AVs with regard to their automated driving system (ADS) to create a harmonised pathway for (SAE/ISO) “Level 4” or “fully automated” vehicles to be deployed on public roads across Member States – with no human driver. It also establishes aggregate safety metrics that will be used to benchmark performance, and ultimately will be used as a measurement for allowing AV testing and deployment.

Knopp Biosciences NIH-funded Pain Program Advances to Third Year of HEAL Award to Discover Non-Opioid Treatments for Chronic Pain20.10.2021 12:00:00 CEST | Press release

Knopp Biosciences LLC today announced that it was awarded a third year of research funding by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to advance the development of its novel non-opioid therapies for the treatment of chronic pain. The project is funded by the NIH Helping to End Addiction Long-term Initiative (NIH HEAL Initiative), which aims to improve treatments for chronic pain, curb the rates of opioid use disorder and overdose, and achieve long-term recovery from opioid addiction. Knopp has developed a discovery platform of proprietary molecules directed to a non-opioid biological target linked to chronic pain caused by damage to nerves. The drug target is a cellular membrane potassium channel called Kv7.2/7.3, which regulates the flow of ions required to modulate the excitability of cells. Growing scientific evidence suggests that selectively activating key Kv7 channel subtypes can control nerve-cell hyperexcitability associated with transmission of chronic pain. “Receiving this ne
