THE DOVETAIL INDUSTRY ADVISORY GROUP is an invitation only group of senior executives of leading Dovetail clients that convenes several times a year to discuss key payments and liquidity management topics. The Group met in February and discussed instant payments, information linked to payments, and correspondent banking models. There was an agreement that, in both the US and Europe, there will be multiple instant payment schemes and that banks need to be sufficiently flexible to deal with this requirement.
If you are a Dovetail client and would like to know more about this group, please contact Jonathan Valentine, Chief Marketing Officer, Dovetail at jonathan.valentine@dovetailsystems.com
