The Importance of Global Payments Functionality

Competition in the financial services sector has never been more intense. Banking boundaries, that once were defined geographically, have expanded globally as a result of digital functionality. While neighborhood financial institutions built their businesses on domestic transactions, today’s consumer and small businesses are sending and receiving funds from all around the world more frequently than ever.

Our guest is Stephen Kuhl, Managing Director – Financial Institutions and Strategic Partnerships for Western Union Business Solutions. We discuss why offering international payment services can be a game-changer, how to overcome hurdles, and what action steps every community bank and credit union must take right now.
