The costs of de-risking infographic

In 2017, Accuity published a report on the demise of correspondent banking relationships and how this is affecting various international markets, as well as providing suggestions on how to avoid a blanket ban on derisking. Correspondent banking relationships form the cornerstone of the global payments system and the 25% overall decline affects both companies’ and invididuals’ ability to perform cross-border payments, ultimately leading to a decline in global trading activities.

The research, based on 8 years’ worth of data (covering 2009 to 2016), was compiled using data collected from the Bankers Almanac for Payments product portfolio and is now presented in an infographic format. It showcases the regional trends explored in further detail in the report and explains the impact that derisking has on banks and non-banking financial institutions (NBFIs) across the globe.
