Finweg Platform

Use Cases

Electronic check

It replicates printed check regulation but on electronic support. It maintains the unique features of the check payments and eliminates the negative features associated with paper handling.

It offers a more efficient electronic alternative for check payments, improving risk and liquidity management, reducing clearing accounts funding needs and eliminating fraud.

Letters of credit

Integrated electronic trade relations management regulated through letters of credit. Payer, recipient, issuing bank and other players involved manage the process through a Smart contract that guarantee to all of them that the agreed terms are fulfilled and payments are automatically released.

They comply with the regulations and the specific type of letter of credit providing guarantee to the process.

Integration of all players and automatization of the process lead to a dramatic reduction of operating costs and lead times.

Term transfer

New payment model that allows interbanking wire transfers that will happen on an agreed date. It assures fund availability both on payer account and clearing bank account providing collectors confidence.

It covers a scenario that actual wire transfers cannot fulfill and creates the foundations for building more complex payment models on top of it.

Direct Debit

Integrated Direct Debit management, from direct debit contract signing between customer and service provider, payment terms (one-time, recurring, fixed or per use), to the payment process itself. All actors: customers, service providers, financial entities, share the information that is managed by a Smart contract that guarantees the fulfilment of agreements by all parties.

It eliminates the processes of notification, verification and conciliation of information among parties and creates a single immutable and irrefutable register of all stages.

Instant international transfer

International multi-currency payments management with global liquidity management.

It replicates the current model but using a blockchain platform to manage the exchange quotation process and the subsequent transfer by applying the currency exchange rate and its liquidity at each end.

Transactions are completed in real time. The liquidity of the system is managed in real time as well, drastically reducing the need of movement of money.

Electronic promissory

100% electronic end-to-end alternative that replicates the payment model of promissory notes improving the process in issues as:

  • Credit risk management of promissory notes issuers.
  • Promissory notes portfolio management for discounting and negotiation.
  • Fraud control, eliminating it.

New Payment Solutions & Smart Payments

The platform enables the design of new payment means directly integrated with the financial systems of all Banks and the clearing and settlement systems.

New players with specific roles can be included, managed by Smart contracts that guarantee that all players work with the same business rules, in a secure, transparent and non-repudiation way.

It can be included constraints to fulfill the operations such as milestones achievement (dates, deliveries, supplies, etc.), validations by entities (notaries, registrars, authenticating officers, etc.) or automatic events (triggered by machines or systems through IoT integration).

The platform guarantees Universal Access to the payment mean and its rapid deployment.

Blockchain

Disruptive Technology

Distributed

information is replicated in a network of completely equal nodes.

Safe

There is no repository access key that can be attacked.

Unalterable

  • Transactions are stored in blocks that are sealed with an unalterable code. The blocks are linked (blockchain) which makes any information alteration more difficult.
  • The incorporation of transactions is performed with consensus mechanisms that ensure they are authentic and prevent their manipulation.
  • Stored information cannot be modified or deleted by anyone.

Blockchain Potential (DLT)

Applied to financial processes and services

Operational simplification

DLT reduces / eliminates manual efforts required to perform reconciliation and resolve disputes.

Regulatory efficiency improvement

DLT enables real-time monitoring of financial activity between regulators and regulated entities

Counterparty risk reduction

DLT challenges the need to trust counterparties to fulfil obligations as agreements are codified and executed in a shared, immutable environment

WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM

Clearing and settlement time reduction

DLT disintermediates third parties that support transaction verification / validation and accelerates settlement

Liquidity and capital improvement

DLT reduces locked-in capital and provides transparency into sourcing liquidity for assets

Fraud minimization

DLT enables asset provenance and full transaction history to be established within a single source of truth
