As per a recent report published by JPMorgan, a CBDC network could save international companies more than a hundred billion dollars a year in transaction charges when it comes to cross-border payments.
The aforementioned report dubbed, “Unlocking $120 Billion Value in Cross-Border Payments”, was published last week by consulting firm Oliver Wyman and megabank JPMorgan.
The report approximates that of approximately twenty four trillion dollars in wholesale payments that move across borders every year, banks incur over one hundred and twenty billion dollars in total transaction costs. Nevertheless, this excludes potential concealed costs in confined liquidity and held up settlements.
In a statement, Oliver Wyman partner Jason Ekberg mentioned,
“The case for CBDCs to address pain points in cross-border payments is very compelling.”
“The bulk of today’s wholesale cross-border payments process remains sub-optimal due to multiple intermediaries between the sending and receiving banks, often resulting in high transaction costs, long settlement times, and lack of transparency on the status of the payments.”
JPMorgan Global Head of Coin Systems Naveen Mallela said,
“The development of CBDCs brings new, tangible opportunities such as subscription-based mCBDC corridor access or smart contract-enabled cash management services.”
The aforementioned report uses the ASEAN region and its corridors as an example. These regions comprise Malaysia, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore, and Thailand, which operates across a diverse set of ten currencies and contributes around seven percent of worldwide cross-border trade.
