A closer look at ISO 20022 

ISO 20022 serves as a universal financial industry messaging standard designed to convey substantial information. It relies on a shared data dictionary to facilitate payment message flows among financial institutions, their clients, and domestic and international market infrastructures. The adoption of ISO 20022 aims to align the Fedwire Funds Service message format with a global standard thus enhancing payment processing efficiency. 

Finastra’s ISO 20022-native payment solutions not only support compliance but also enable financial institutions to enhance payment processing automation, improve fraud risk management, improve operational efficiencies, and elevate customer experience. 

In the official company announcement, representatives from Datos Insights highlighted the significance of compliance with ISO 20022 messaging standards for Fedwire. Alignment with this global standard positions banks and credit unions to enhance their payment processing and promote interoperability worldwide.
