Corporate to Bank APIs for Guarantees – Are We Future Ready?


We have worked with the ICC to create the first Corporate to Bank API for guarantees, forward compatible with ISO20022. During this session, we would like to discuss more about the APIs and the adoption plans. We will also discuss acceptability of the API as the common standard across corporates, platforms and banks.  Finally, we would like to spark a debate on whether the industry is ready for ISO20222 for trade finance and how we see this space evolving?
