Visa Cross-Border Solutions launches to help businesses grow globally

  • Visa Cross-Border Solutions will offer sophisticated cross-border solutions to banks, fintech, FX brokers, and corporates, as well as other payment institutions
  • The solutions are offered as part of a suite of modular building blocks that can be easily integrated with a company’s existing technology
  • The new Visa business combines the best of its existing cross-border capabilities with Currencycloud the cross-border facilitator

Singapore – 14 September 2023 – Visa Inc. and Currencycloud, the experts simplifying business in a multi-currency world, today launched Visa Cross-Border Solutions, delivering cross-border money movement solutions for banks, fintechs, FX brokers, corporates, and other payment institutions.

Visa Cross-Border Solutions combines the best of its homegrown cross-border and cash management capabilities, previously known as ‘Treasury-as-a-Service’, with solutions enabled by its acquisition of Currencycloud. Visa Cross-Border Solutions operates on what it calls a ‘B2B4X’ model: the business serves other businesses but with a strong focus on improving the end-user experience.

Who that end-user is varies widely: it could be someone who needs competitive and transparent FX rates when sending remittances to family abroad. Or it could be an SMB that wants to receive payment from an international customer without intermediaries charging opaque fees.

Visa Cross-Border Solutions offers a suite of modular building blocks that can be easily integrated with a company’s existing technology infrastructure. This is done via an application programming interface or API. These building blocks enable a range of capabilities including receiving payments in multiple currencies, foreign exchange (FX) with persistent and real-time rates, multi-currency wallets that hold more than 30 currencies, and the ability to spend in and send payments to, more than 180 countries and territories.

Outside of traditional banking, Visa Cross-Border Solutions will work alongside other Visa divisions as well as with existing Visa and Currencycloud customers including corporates, fintechs, FX brokers, and other firms who want to offer embedded multi-currency and cross-border functionality to their customers.

Colleen Ostrowski, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Visa Cross-Border Solutions, said: “Cross-Border offers a huge opportunity for innovation and growth. Until now it’s always been a difficult market to crack due to compliance, regulatory, and technological challenges. We’re offering solutions that can overcome those challenges.”

“We help with the regulatory burden while providing solutions that are flexible and easy to integrate. Our clients can then quickly ramp up to revenue generation and start seeing a return on their investment, and their end-user experience receives a massive uplift.”

Aleks Stefanovski, Vice President of Strategy and Business Operations, at Visa Cross-Border Solutions, said: “In launching Visa Cross-Border Solutions, our focus has been on bringing out the best of Visa and Currencycloud: blending reliability, security, and innovation. It’s the scale of Visa with the agility of Currencycloud.”

“Most importantly, we’ve been laser-focused on building a suite of tools that are suitable for the kinds of companies we work with – all of which are held to high standards on compliance, security, and customer experience.”

                  The world’s preeminent Private Banks and Wealth Managers are demonstrating a committed drive in innovation, advisory, new products and services to meet the sophisticated needs of their clients.

                  COVID-19
                  Amid economic activity revival on the back of the Covid-19 vaccine program, organisations moving from business continuity plans to stable working environments, together with the slightest improvement in unemployment numbers, forced the world to adjust to new realities. Coming to terms with the “new normal”, global investors are now on the look-out for attractive and stable investment opportunities.

                  Needs of Private Wealth customers and families worldwide have drastically changed due to the pandemic and banks have had to accelerate efforts to deploy a multi-channel service strategy and safeguard clients’ businesses and wealth against negative impacts of economic uncertainly.

                  The Global Private Banking Innovation Awards will recognise the world’s best private banks, wealth managers and asset managers that are championing innovation across advisory, service, products, customer experience and more.
