This transformation is being fueled by a proliferation of new payment intermediaries and infrastructures along with a largescale shift in client expectations and available technology. As such, banks and the industry overall are heavily focused on change, innovation and rethinking the end to end payments model. Many aspects of the business are in flux including messaging standards, efficiency, service levels, ecosystem interaction models and commercial arrangements. Around these themes, banks are completely rethinking how they approach the market and how they deliver their products to their clients
