FXC Intelligence’s data underpins cross-border payments decisions at the highest levels of international policy and trade through our global indices products.
From the Financial Stability Board (FSB) to the World Bank, we provide some of the world’s most important financial organisations with critical data to benchmark policy and shape decision making.
Our data is available to central banks, globally looking financial institutions and investors to help align with international standards, strategy and to track the sector.
Case study one: The G20 cross-border payments targets
FXC Intelligence provides the FSB with underlying data for the G20’s Roadmap for Enhancing Cross-Border Payments project, which will be used to benchmark and track progress for the G20.
This includes cross-border payments data covering cost, speed, access and transparency within the sector, including:
Central banks and other major institutions will need to align to this roadmap.
If you are interested in this data or in understanding the much more granular cuts of this data that we have available, please get in touch.
Case study two: Our work with the World Bank underpins the UN sustainable development goal on remittances
We also work with the World Bank on a number of different projects, including supplying data for the World Bank Remittance Prices Worldwide (RPW) database. This covers 367 corridors worldwide, across many of the most important remittance corridors to developing countries.
The RPW is vital to global benchmarking of remittance costs and cost-reduction objectives, and is also used by the G8 and G20, as well as individual governments, multilateral organisations, the private sector and academics.
Critically, it is also used to measure progress against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 10.c. This commits to the following:
- Reducing the transaction costs of migrant remittances to less than 3%
- Eliminating remittance corridors with costs higher than 5%
