Deutsche Bank has released its second guide to the ISO 20022 migration. As Part 1 of the Guide emphasised, banks should not consider the migration to ISO 20022 as just “another IT project” and it’s equally important that corporates do not make the mistake of writing it off as just “another bank project”. So whether it’s a global bank implementing seismic changes, or a small corporate taking more modest steps, all market participants need to be regularly updated and ensure they are moving in the right direction.
Guide to ISO 20022 migration: Part 2” offers guidance for picking a successful route for migration and securing the full benefits of ISO 20022. Further Guides are planned as the journey continues.
Deutsche Bank has released the second edition of its white paper, “Regulation driving banking transformation”. The paper assesses the impact of three key trends in the financial industry: Can the increased product offerings and upscaled customer service of Fintechs alter the incumbent players’ business models and even the financial market structure itself? As BigTechs turn their attention to financial services, should regulators be more vigilant when it comes to competition and data protection rules? Is regulatory clarity setting a path for the development and evolution of the crypto assets market?
The paper calls for a regulatory environment that supports the safe and robust development of each trend – concluding that regulation will play a key role in shaping the face of this newly emerging landscape, defining the trajectory of change.

The upcoming migration to ISO 20022 will have far-reaching implications for all banks, corporates and other important financial stakeholders. It is probably the most impactful payments industry undertaking since the introduction of the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) more than a decade ago, and will require CEO commitment, allocation of appropriate budgets, resources and project teams given that a multitude of areas will be affected across institutions. This is not simply “another IT project”.
Deutsche Bank’s series of guides on this topic, aim to outline exactly what we can expect between now and 2025, creating awareness of the impact of ISO 20022 implementation and sharing best practices for approaching a project of such magnitude. The first in the series, “Guide to ISO 20022 migration: Part one”, focuses on the implications for banks, with future editions turning to assess how corporates can best plan for the changes.

With the market for payables finance – and the understanding of it – evolving all the time, Deutsche Bank has released a revised and updated guide that seeks not only to factor in the latest developments, but also to re-evaluate the key questions that define the industry. What is payables finance and where does it fit into the wider universe of supply chain finance techniques? What is driving demand for these solutions? How do the physical and financial supply chains interact? And how do you go about setting up a successful programme?

iGTB has launched two whitepapers outlining its vision of “contextual banking” – which sees banks use contextual data to provide clients with automatic and tailored recommendations via a digital platform. The papers argue such an approach will bring customer service to unprecedented highs – providing simple, one-click solutions for cash management and payments optimisation – while also cutting bank costs and opening up new revenue streams.
Commenting on The contextual revolution: Cash Management’s answer to Amazon and Siri, and Payments done properly: Contextuality holds the key to operational efficiency, Manish Maakan, CEO of iGTB, says: “We think most banks ask too much of their clients – leaving them to research and understand the vast array of banking products at their disposal and determine which is best for their business in each new situation. No other industry expects so much of its clients. Contextual banking is about reducing that workload – and making transaction banking an exemplar, rather than a cautionary tale, of customer service.”
