Swift remit a users perspective on the benefits


Published on

This was a brief approach on the SWIFT Remittances Platform's benefits to the challenging Remittances Market. It's terse look at the issue, but my "take" goes beyond a simple one: How could banks address the challenge when they had not prepared for this? The growing flow of remittances isn't short of extraordinary, especially if you consider the "slide" inside that "By 2040 developed countries will be COMPETING FOR MIGRANTS"...We'd better prepare!
