The role of crypto in cross border remittances?
With the background of booming crypto prices and accelerated adoption by financial institutions, a growing number of corporations are accepting payments in Bitcoins and central banks backed digital currencies are taking steam. Is this really a shift of sentiment or in fact, is there a role of crypto in cross-border remittances or is this all still hype? Will the regulators ever allow digital assets to be used as payment instruments for cross-border payments?
Remittances in 2020: A year to be remembered or forgotten? - The good, the bad and the ugly!
The 2020 Covid-19 has sent shockwaves around the world and created unprecedented economic volatility. Remittances have been significantly affected, but the payment industry has responded and mitigated against the impact the pandemic is having on remittances.
Impact of Covid-19 on remittances - the next chapter
In April 2020, the World Bank estimated that remittances would fall by 20 percent in low and middle-income countries. The projected fall, which could be the sharpest decline in recent history, is largely due to a fall in the wages and employment of migrant workers, who tend to be more vulnerable to loss of employment and wages during an economic crisis in a host country. During this webinar, Dilip Ratha will share updated data on remittances from The World Bank. We will also discuss with Peter De Caluwe and Andy Jury what accessible, fast and reliable payment solutions means in emerging markets.
What are the opportunities and barriers they must face while increasing the availability to financial services across their network? How is it to maintain a profitable business but at the same time keep it attractive for others to partner, to operate on small margins, high volumes and high frequency?
COVID-19 : catalyst for consolidation?
Is COVID-19 the catalyst to push consolidation in the remittance industry or will the boost to digital allow players to remain independent?
Covid-19 has generated a significant rise in the demand for digital remittance services due to the stay at home orders.
After the announcement of the WorldRemit - Sendwave $500m acquisition, Daniel Webber, FXC Intelligence CEO, and Mohit Davar, IAMTN Chairman, address whether digital growth will be a driver of consolidation in the highly fragmented cross-border payments space or if digital players will grow stronger from the crisis and remain independent.
Impact of COVID-19 on migrants and remittances II
This is our second webinar in a series of webinars, where we discuss the findings of IAMTN’s latest report on the impact of COVID-19 on migrants and remittances.
The impact of COVID-19 on migrants and remittances
On 31st March 2020, at the request of IAMTN’s members, we have initiated a survey, which aims to monitor the risks and problems posed by the current COVID-19 crisis on the international remittances markets and to assist the public and private sector stakeholders in better address these. The findings of the IAMTN survey will help the cross-border payment sector better understand how international remittances markets are affected by the COVID crisis.
The findings of this report are based on a study and survey conducted by IAMTN in collaboration with UNCDF. During this webinar, we will discuss the findings of the report.
