The roots of today's cross-border payments ecosystem date back centuries -- and change doesn't come easily. But in this conversation with OMFIF's editor Lewis McLellan, our CEO, Dave Sissens, explains why change is coming faster than you think.

Our CEO, Dave Sissens, sits down with the Digital Monetary Institute’s editor, Lewis McLellan, to discuss the possibilities for improving the quality of the infrastructure underpinning cross-border payments.

They talk about the role that’s platform can play in the future of the wholesale foreign exchange settlement ecosystem and how it can integrate with other payments systems, including CBDCs.

The conversation also covers payment-versus-payment (PvP) settlement, the removal of counterparty risk, the role of decentralisation and what the payments landscape will look like over the next 5 to 10 years.
