Romania-based Libra Internet Bank has announced its partnership with Temenos in order to provide cross-border payments and facilitate ISO 20022.

Following this announcement, Libra Internet Bank is set to leverage Temenos Payments in order to facilitate ISO 20022 cross-border payments and reporting (Swift CBPR+) on the Swift network. The bank will also use Temenos’ scalable and secure platform to add additional payment rails in the future, aiming to bring them together in a single, efficient, and safe platform for its clients to utilise. The partnership will also optimise the bank’s overall process of development, which aims to double the payments’ volumes over the next five years. 

Libra Internet Bank already uses Temenos’s core banking, and the incorporation of its payment offerings will allow the financial institution to simplify and standardise its overall payment operations. Customers will be given the possibility to benefit from its capabilities while using a single platform, which increases Straight Through Processing (STP) rates, as well as improves user servicing.

After implementing Temenos services, clients received decreased costs, and tech-driven banking solutions, which resulted in a more stable financial life for US-based users. In addition, the partnership allowed an expansion of its financial inclusion, as well as optimised financial wellbeing for clients.

Earlier in the same month, Temenos launched a secure solution for banks and financial institutions, by using Generative AI for automatically classifying customers’ banking transactions. The launch aimed to make fast and accurate classifications of transactions, with a high degree of accuracy in different languages.
