Nasser Khodri, head of capital markets at FIS, added “As derivatives clearing firms seek ways to limit risks while reducing operational costs, they are embracing the transformational change of their ecosystem and operating model.” said
FIS and Societe Generale have a well established relationship.Two years ago, they teamed up to enable instant payments for corporate clients in Europe.
The bank leverages the SEPA Instant Credit Transfer (SCT Inst) scheme, a European Payments Council initiative to expedite payments.
