SOLUTIONS FOR INTERNATIONAL PAYMENTS IN EMERGING MARKETS

Due to increasing regulations in the area of money laundering and terrorist financing plus revenue models which are under pressure, banks increasingly restrict their services to developed economies. However, the growth markets for international trade are the emerging economies in Africa, the Middle East (for example Iran), and South America. Unfortunately, these countries often know many restrictions on payments, have a non-functioning banking network and a volatile currency.

What we often see and hear is that banks appreciate our meditation and that it helps them to improve their relationship with the customer. In particular for countries where there is no direct banking relationship, and they cannot help their client. As a result, service is limited and can not help banks because it is beyond their scope and responsibility. Due to our expertise and the relationship we have with banks, the customer is ultimately helped and insufficient insight into the nature of the transaction that is important to comply with international regulations.
