Machine learning revolutionizes payment flows, enhancing fraud detection and efficiency in global finance, while Commerzbank and Visa invest in innovative payment solutions.

Amid increasing scrutiny on cyber attacks, global supply chain volatility and slow recovery, institutions are looking for strategies to improve their efficiency and security.

But what direct steps are some of the key international players taking to boost their position on the global stage?

Commerzbank’s Strategic Initiative for Cross-Border Payments

Commerzbank, a titan in the banking sector, has focused on using ML technology to revolutionize its payment platform.

The project aims to enhance the processing of cross-border payments through the SWIFT network and expedite high-value, urgent transactions via TARGET 2 and EURO 1 payment systems.

At the heart of this transformation lies the TRAVIC-Payment Hub by PPI, a platform adept in the ISO 20022 formats.

By the end of 2025, Commerzbank aspires to process all payment messages in Germany in this universal financial language, encompassing high-value payments and correspondent bank payments.

Simone Loefgen, Global Head of Payment Platforms, asserts that this ISO-native IT platform is indispensable for reliable international payment mandates and will significantly enhance services for executing payments, heralding a new chapter of innovation in cross-border payments.

Visa’s AI-Powered Fraud Prevention Solutions

Visa has unveiled a trio of AI-powered solutions within its Visa Protect suite, designed to guard against fraud in the digital payments arena.

These innovations are a testament to Visa’s commitment to security, backed by a staggering US$10bn investment in technology over five years.

Visa’s prowess in AI has been instrumental in thwarting US$40bn in fraudulent activity, showcasing a near doubling of efficacy from the previous year.

The suite includes Visa Deep Authorization (VDA), a deep learning model adept at managing card-not-present (CNP) payments, Visa Advanced Authorization (VAA), and Visa Risk Manager (VRM) for non-Visa card payments.

Additionally, Visa introduces a real-time, account-to-account payment protection service, a first for immediate payments.

These solutions, set to launch in the first half of 2024, promise to reshape the landscape of fraud prevention, leveraging Visa’s AI expertise to safeguard transactions across the globe.
