NY Mellon has introduced Virtual Account-Based Solutions, enhancing clients’ cash management with improved access, control, and reporting for global treasurers.

Real-time transparency and flexibility

Virtual accounts are linked to physical accounts within BNY Mellon and allow incoming or outgoing payments to be reflected in real time, to maintain a virtual sub-ledger that provides a continuously updated transaction and balance history to deliver transparency into company-wide cash flows. These accounts have a unique account number accessible on external payment networks, are self-serviced and managed, and can be established to reflect a client's business needs or ideal liquidity structure with complete flexibility.

Officials from BNY Mellon said that clients are demanding more flexibility to reflect account structures without having to open a multitude of physical accounts with multiple banks. The flow of payment information is becoming just as significant as the movement of funds and with Virtual Account-Based Solutions they can provide straight-through processing for reconciliation or to help segregate cash and transactions across multiple business units or entities.

Virtual Account-Based Solutions cases:

  • Automatically reconciling high volumes of incoming payments over USD wires and ACH networks, accurately identifying the remitter of each payment, and reconciling receivables by client, business, invoice and beyond;

  • Supporting the centralisation of payment and collection functions across legal entities e.g., through Payments on Behalf Of (POBO) and Collections on Behalf Of (COBO) structures. In-House Bank structures are all supported through this solution, supporting their large corporate and institutional clients with streamlined cash management;

  • Establishing a hierarchy of virtual accounts exclusive to a specific business unit, property, division, geography, or purpose, providing a segregated view of cash and transactions without managing a large amount of physical bank accounts;

  • Supporting Financial Institution clients to segregate their (physical) Nostro accounts for use by their end corporate clients to receive Wires or ACH credits in the US.
