Global Payments for International Development

  •  February 8, 2022
     9:00 AM - 9:45 AM

This event is hosted by our Posner Center member – Konektid. Every international development organization wants to get more money to their field offices as efficiently as they can. We want to minimize the amount of funding lost to exchange rates and other fees, so more funding can get to beneficiaries on the ground. To support this, we are excited to host a conversation with Corpay, a large global payments firm that is part of the publicly traded Fleetcor (NYSE: FLT) company. They will share with us best practices for efficiently getting your funding to your field teams globally. Our conversation will explore tools to help unravel the complexities behind cross-border payments for international development projects, ways to navigate the pre-, during- and post-transaction process, and how you can use security measures to protect your payment’s transmission. What Corpay will discuss: – Tools to help you deliver local currencies in full on time, every time. – The hidden costs of sending payments – What SWIFT is, and what their new GPI will mean for you and your IDP – When it may be a good idea to pay in USD versus local currencies, and ways to optimize the delivery of those funds Who should attend? – CFOs and Finance teams from international development and aid organizations.
