The changing face of transaction banking
“Transaction banking is an environment of high investment and taken in isolation, individual aspects of the value chain are often not profitable. It is unknown whether the new entrants can match the strength of transaction banks in this respect. “
Pascal Augé, Head of Global Transaction & Payment Services
Real-time: how fast is too fast?
“For banks in Europe, huge costs and risks are associated with real-time payments with very little return in terms of a business case. Real-time payments are coming, but more attention must be paid to the liquidity and risk issues if we are to have a successful Europe-wide real-time payments system.”
Emmanuel de Bouard, Head of Cash Clearing, Global Transaction Banking
For a company that exports, succeeding abroad requires specific support to negotiate the various stages that await it. What international development opportunities are there? How can the company identify its future clients and suppliers? How can it ensure that its transactions run smoothly?... The bank is the partner that will help it succeed in its various endeavours.
Factoring and cash management
Reliable and efficient cash management is a major factor in the success of a company's commercial transactions. The bank is a privileged partner that helps the company get the most out of its cash flow, thanks to a range of tools such as account management and factoring. How does it work?
