Transaction banking – or global transaction banking (GTB) – has become a widely-used, catch-all term for a range of previously disparate financial products and services provided by banks. GTB is concerned with activities such as payments processing, cash management, trade finance, and securities services. As such, it represents the interface of banking with the world of physical trade and supply of services.
A once-neglected sector, transaction banking has risen to prominence since the global financial crisis and is now viewed as a key business line within banks. Due its more consistent and stable revenues and lower risk profile, GTB is seen as a welcome counter to more volatile investment banking business.
This course is designed to equip bankers and other financial market professionals with a high level knowledge of global transaction banking and its role within the overall bank offering, particularly since the financial crisis. The first two courses in the course cover topics such as:
• The role of GTB in servicing the global economy
• The core services provided by transaction banking businesses
• The key business and regulatory issues shaping the GTB landscape
• The payments processing services offered by transaction banks
Future courses will address the various cash management services provided by transaction banks and the influence of regulatory initiatives such as SEPA and the European Payment Services Directive on the transaction banking landscape.
TRANSACTION BANKING - AN INTRODUCTION
Transaction banking refers to a range of banking services for corporate and institutional clients, including payment processing, cash management, trade finance, and securities services such as custody. In the post-financial crisis world, transaction banking has been reevaluated as a business line within banks due to its stable returns and low capital requirements. The growth in global trade, especially in Asia, has also increased the demand from corporates for global transaction banking services.
This course examines the background behind the growth in transaction banking as a distinct business line, the different services provided by transaction banks, and the impact of technology and regulations such as Basel III on the world of transaction banking universe.
No prior knowledge is assumed for this course.

TRANSACTION BANKING - PAYMENTS
Payments systems are crucial to the smooth running of the global economy. This course describes the role that both low value and large/high value payments systems play in the global economy.

TRANSACTION BANKING - CASH
Banks manage the timing of money for their corporate banking customers by providing essential cash management services. This may simply be for paying suppliers or may involve transferring huge sums across the globe in order to fund a major investment. In addition, customers who do not need the money now require services allowing them to generate a return from their surplus funds. The approach to achieving such a return will vary according to the size and nature of different customers and their timeframes.
This course looks initially at the bank client perspective on cash management and the typical tasks that go into the role of those tasked with cash management responsibilities – corporate treasurers. The course shows how transaction banks act as support for the entire cash management cycle, from cash collection, to cash sweeping, concentration, and investment.

TRANSACTION BANKING - REGULATORY
The roots of Europe’s single market for payments lie in the Lisbon Strategy or Lisbon Agenda of 2000, a political initiative that aimed to turn the EU into the most competitive knowledge-based society by 2010. Cheap and efficient payments was seen as a major catalyst for this and the Payments Services Directive (PSD), introduced in 2007, aimed to realize this objective by opening up the business of payments to a host of non-traditional providers. The PSD also provided the legal framework for the Single Euro Payments Area that aims to standardize Europe’s payments infrastructure.
This course examines the rules and standards out by the PSD and SEPA, and looks at the consequences of these initiatives for transaction banking in Europe and beyond.
