  • Company & department description

    Develop the growing portfolio of gpi transaction management services and specifically the gpi Instant service.

     

    SWIFT gpi went live in January 2017 with its customer credit transfer service. Co-created with SWIFT's customers, the objective of this first service is to dramatically improve the customer experience of making cross-border payments, by increasing their speed, transparency and traceability, for the benefit of the corporate treasurer. Furthermore, SWIFT has been working with the gpi community of banks to identify additional gpi transaction management services and build a strategic roadmap.
