Description & Coverage
Description:

Payment systems are the indispensable infrastructure for financial markets and business activities. Every commercial trade and financial transaction is finalized only when the final settlement is made through a payment system. If operational failures would occur in a payment system, preventing smooth transfers of funds, national economies and financial markets would be thrown into extreme confusion and seriously damaged. Therefore, the safety and efficiency of payment systems is incredibly important for national economies and financial systems to function effectively.

Payment System Technologies and Functions: Innovations and Developments is valuable tool for those interested in learning about payment systems, including academics and researchers, graduate and undergraduate students, relevant parties of authority and central banks, and professionals in payment business who need a complete understanding of payment systems. This reference promotes a better understanding of payment systems and encourages progress on enhancing the safety and efficiency of payment systems.

Reviews and Testimonials

This book provides an extensive overview of the world of payment systems. It starts by presenting the basic concepts and risks, describes traditional and advanced payment systems, provides useful insights in the trends and innovations in the payments landscape and ends with a description of the developments in a number of important currency areas, including the role played by CLS Bank in the settlement of foreign exchange transactions. The attention paid to innovations in this book is, in my view, very important for a good understanding of the evolution taking place in payment systems. [...] In this book, the reader will find all the information needed to understand the way payment systems function and will gain a better understanding of the current transformation taking place in this field.
