Everyone is talking about faster and real-time payments. But for corporate treasury departments in the United States, it hasn’t really caught on yet except for some, very specific use cases. Corporate treasury professionals typically aren’t the ones to jump at investing in some flashy new technology. On the other hand, there is a question of whether the U.S. is going to catch up to other nations.

In this episode of AFP Conversations, we discuss real-time, what it has to offer, and what its limitations are, with Kim Ford, Executive Director of the U.S. Faster Payments Council. The Faster Payments Council was established to allow Americans to pay anyone safely and securely, anywhere, at any time and with near-immediate funds availability.
