Citi Helps Clients Collect Cross-Border B2B Payments with a New Platform, Citi Global Collect

Published 

NEW YORK, NY – Citi has launched a new cross-border platform to help its multinational clients manage the complexities in collecting cross border business-to-business payments, by digitising the transaction process and embedding FX capabilities. Citi Global Collect, a collaboration between Citi’s Treasury and Trade Solutions (TTS) and Foreign Exchange (FX) businesses, will help multinational clients continue to extend their global reach, making it easier to collect funds from overseas payers and apply cash faster.

In today’s environment, institutions deal with multiple service providers to collect their payments by presenting invoices, collecting funds cross-border and reconciling payments – creating an inefficient and disjointed experience. Additionally, current collection processes are primarily manual and paper-based, creating more operational inefficiency.

To address this challenge, Citi combined its local payment offerings, account structures and FX capabilities with a leading digital invoicing platform from HighRadius Corporation, a Citi Ventures portfolio company. This fully integrated platform connects Citi’s clients to their international payers across key markets in all regions. By automating the entire workflow – including international billing, automated payment, currency selection and reconciliation – multinational clients achieve greater visibility and control over cross-border receipts and their global cash position.

“In today’s digital economy, clients must scale quickly into new markets to remain competitive. At Citi, we are arming our clients with the technology to enable expansion and sustain growth by automating key aspects of their core operations and improving the end-to-end user experience,” said Manish Kohli, Global Head, Payments and Receivables, Citi.

Citi Global Collect leverages the bank’s international footprint, alongside its best-in-class FX and payments capabilities, to create a frictionless payment experience for both billers and payers. By embedding FX into the invoicing process, institutional clients have access to multi-currency pricing and can price goods and services in the preferred currency of their international payers, while still receiving the full amount in their functional currency with guaranteed rates.

“With the roll out of Citi Global Collect, Citi continues to prove that we are able to leverage our greatest assets to create competitive technology solutions that meet our clients’ international business needs and allow them to manage associated currency risks,” said Flavio Figueiredo, Global Head, Rates and Currencies Corporate Sales, Citi.

Citi Global Collect leverages emerging technologies, strategic Fintech partnerships, and the strength of Citi’s global network. “We are excited to extend our partnership with Citi by contributing to a new solution that combines our cutting edge technology with Citi’s industry-leading assets” said Sashi Narahari, Founder and CEO of HighRadius.
