Nordic banks take the first step to build world’s first real-time, cross-border payment system in multiple currencies.
The collaboration, joint ambition, and strong commitment of the founding banks ensure P27 has the solid foundation required for realising the vision of an integrated, cross-border payment system for the 27 million people living in the Nordic region.
P27 will enable real-time, batch, domestic and cross-border payments to be carried out quickly and at low cost on a secure and versatile platform. The platform will initially allow payments to flow instantly between people and businesses within the countries of Denmark, Finland and Sweden, something that will benefit growth and development in the region. The platform will be designed to be expandable to allow for payments across the rest of the Nordics as well, which will contribute to the strengthening of the Nordic payment’s ecosystem.
