Time: 11:30 am Registation & Networking -12 pm Lunch & Presentation
Cross-border payments are a rapidly growing industry, and around the world there are growing demands for more efficient ways to settle payments. Today, correspondent banking is the best way to settle funds across borders, and it is slow, uncertain and costly. Financial institutions around the world are exploring distributed financial technologies, like Ripple, to learn how to improve efficiencies and ultimately lower the costs of cross-currency settlement. How are banks using this technology today, and what opportunities are there for banks like yours to benefit?
