Nium and Kapronasia Partner to Shed Light on Cross-border B2B Payment Challenges in Asia


The launch of the paper is the first of many activations Nium has planned for Money 20/20 Asia

SINGAPORE , April 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Nium, the global leader in real-time, cross-border payments, and Asia's leading payments, banking, and capital markets research firm, Kapronasia, today launched "Breaking Borders: The Revolution of Real-Time Cross-Border B2B Payments in Asia" - a new data-backed white paper that addresses cross-border B2B payment challenges, current initiatives, and the important role of intermediaries.

In global commerce, cross-border B2B payments are crucial, yet hindered by complexity, high costs, and slow processing times. These challenges, compounded by diverse regulatory environments, can erode profitability and stall growth. There's a pressing need for innovation and reform in cross-border payments. In the paper, readers will learn more on how fintech solutions and regulatory harmonization efforts promise to simplify processes, reduce costs, and speed up transactions. The research calls out initiatives, such as SWIFT GPI, Project Nexus, and ASEAN's Regional Payment Connectivity, alongside emerging technologies, that signal a brighter future for cross-border transactions. Download the paper to see the data and learn more.

"Cross-border B2B payments are critical, but they face formidable challenges - from outdated systems to regulatory complexities," said Zennon Kapron, Founder and Director of Kapronasia. "Our latest research, in collaboration with Nium, sheds light on this critical issue. As we chart the course forward, it's evident that transformative change is imminent. Intermediaries like Nium play a pivotal role in this journey, bridging gaps and reshaping the landscape of global commerce. However, this transformation demands collective action to overcome technological and regulatory hurdles. Yet, the vision is clear - a world where cross-border transactions flow seamlessly, fostering collaboration across borders."

The launch of the paper is a part of a wider push leading into Money 20/20 Asia in Bangkok, Thailand (April 23-25). Nium plans to take the city by storm with announcements, panels, and parties, that highlight its expansion in the region.

The company will be making three blockbuster announcements during the event:
