Corporates face many challenges, some of which are due to gaps in bank services

  • Managing multiple accounts and obtaining easy access to transaction data remain key issues
  • While corporate needs are changing, managing cross-bank complexity and data access remain key unaddressed issues
  • There are gaps in understanding between what corporates need, and what banks believe they need

Real time provides a platform for wider enhancements to corporate banking services

  • Access to RTPs increases the expectations corporates have of their bank partners
  • Real time enables immediate enhancements to several areas of the corporate banking proposition
  • An additional benefit of real time is that investments in reducing financial crime risk can also solve a clear corporate pain-point

Ultimately, it is investments on top of real time that will allow banks to address future corporate needs

  • The benefits of RTPs alone do not make a meaningful difference to corporate satisfaction
  • Diverging development plans between those markets with and without real time will drive gaps in future corporate services
  • The combination of real-time and open banking initiatives will enable further improvements for banks
