With an aim to build the newly-formed transaction-banking arm, The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. GS has teamed up with Visa Inc. V to make cross-border payments and move money globally. This partnership seeks to enable faster and safer payments that would be more accessible to businesses and customers.

The deal also aims to help clients with clearer near real-time visibility in their payment statuses, and availability of all necessary reconciliation and compliance data.

Goldman’s clients can avail Visa B2B Connect, which is a corporate payment network permitting financial institutions to process high-value, cross-border payments in 97 markets. Visa B2B Connect is also devised to reduce the time spent on cross-border corporate payments by accommodating transactions from originator bank directly to the beneficiary bank, thereby aiding to streamline settlements.

It helps boost visibility and predictability in transaction flows, giving clients a chance to track payment status from originator bank to destination bank in real time, while simplifying the reconciliation process and honing accuracy.

Clients can also use Visa Direct Payouts, by which the bank can bring push-to-account functionality for lower value, high volume, cross-border Business-to-Small-Business and Business-to-Consumer (B2C) payouts, eradicating any complexity associated with managing multiple networks. Visa Direct Payouts bolsters Goldman Sachs’s payment options for its corporate clients, via a single connection to billions of endpoints in more than 90 markets.

Goldman’s Transaction Banking clients can resume availing Visa’s solutions right away through their existing connections, whether through API, file or online web platform.

Goldman’s partnership with Visa capitalizes on grounds of businesses increasingly diversifying their supply chains, and buying and selling goods overseas. This has caused the value of cross-border payments to ascend to more than $30 trillion annually, per consultancy Juniper Research.

We believe, following this partnership, Goldman will be able to leverage on Visa’s capabilities to serve customers better. With the help of this platform, customers will be able to manage their cross-border business-to-business and B2C payments for high- and low-value payments in a more seamless manner than before, simplifying complexities and costs associated with the current systems and inefficient procedures.

Shares of Goldman have rallied 59.8%, outperforming 10.4% growth recorded by Visa. Currently, both companies carry a Zacks Rank of 3 (Hold). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.
