BNP Paribas Joins Forces with Capgemini to Deliver a New Dimension to the Industry-Leading World Payments Report

| News alert
Paris – Capgemini, a global leader in consulting, technology and outsourcing services, will collaborate with BNP Paribas to bring the next edition of leading World Payments Report to the forefront of the payments and cash management industry. BNP Paribas, a global banking player and a recognized leader in Transaction Banking and Cash Management, and Capgemini’s Financial Services Strategic Business Unit (SBU) announced their collaboration to co-develop and evolve the industry recognized World Payments Report, now in its 12th year. While continuing to address banks, the WPR will now also respond to the needs of enterprises for in-depth research on all payment-related topics – from international and FX payments to innovative solutions.

This new collaboration is powered by a deep and integral understanding, from both firms, of the fast changing global transaction banking and cash management industry. With in-depth, first-hand experience of regional nuances and perspectives, Capgemini and BNP Paribas are uniquely positioned to produce a payments industry report that not only incorporates the payments supply side and regulator perspective, but also integrates the views of the largest payments users - corporates and merchants.

"The World Payments Report is a reference document for industry executives who look to it for insights into the payments landscape and our unparalleled payment expertise puts us in pole position to provide such practical experience," said Pierre Fersztand, Global Head of Cash Management at BNP Paribas. "We are delighted to co-produce the report with Capgemini and take our joint research capabilities and thought leadership further into all segments of the industry."

The World Payments Report explores the demand for ever more innovative payment services; the push from regulators for better services in securer environments; the increasing number of newcomers bringing disruptive value propositions; and what market leaders will need to invest to remain competitive. The report is updated annually and provides the state of the global payments marketplace, a global snapshot of key industry and regulatory initiatives as well as unique perspectives and analysis on burning issues in the payments industry.

"As one of the largest banks in the world, BNP Paribas will be an invaluable research partner, providing a deep industry perspective on what is probably the fastest changing sector in financial services, namely payments," said Thierry Delaporte, Chief Executive Officer, Capgemini’s Financial Services Business Unit. "Combining our expertise will undoubtedly expand readership for the report and foster more discussion on the future of payments in the marketplace."
