Low-value payments are the single largest driver of growth in GPD's payments volumes, which are currently ~60% higher than at this time last year. In order to support this increasing demand, the Company has embarked upon an initiative to securely access a greater number of global ACH low-value clearing systems. GPD maintains an extensive network of approximately 300 local correspondent banks worldwide, providing its customers with access to local clearing in 140 currencies across more than 175 countries. The Company has leveraged these trusted correspondent bank relationships to begin implementing ACH connectivity, and is looking to expand on its current ACH offering of 15 currencies by an additional 60 currencies over the next 12 months.
GPD's trusted relationships with hundreds of global correspondent banks enable the Company to provide efficient and secure cross-border payments. Additionally, GPD team members regularly liaise with these banks, government and regulatory bodies, and other market participants to source unique local intelligence that is critical to payments and foreign exchange. The Company offers payments solutions to global financial institutions including eight of the top ten in the Euromoney 2017 survey of FX Market Share, in addition international aid and development organizations, non-governmental organizations, and multinational corporations.
