Services and Products
CENTRAL BANK SERVICES
The Pacific has successfully evolved from the highest-cost remittance region in the world, to the world’s lowest-cost multi-currency region for small value cross border payments, in the period 2009-2017. This is due to strong leadership in technological innovation, enhanced regulation, and more competition as a result of shared core infrastructure for small financial institutions.
Several countries in the Pacific region have populations who now use digital/mobile wallet services at a higher rate than anywhere else in the world, per capita; and this is coupled with some of the highest rates of economic dependency on remittances, as a percentage of GDP, at a national and macroeconomic level.
Domestic Payment Systems
Klickex has been building Domestic Payment Systems for more than ten years. Beginning in Tonga, KlickEx built the first real time inter-bank payment system between ANZ bank and Westpac Bank of Tonga in 2009, after a two year consultative development program.
This service enabled real-time transfers between the two domestic banks for the first time, for customers registered for the service. In 2013 the Tonga Development Bank was also added to the system, and BSP was included briefly and seamlessly following their acqusition of Westpac Bank of Tonga in 2015.
