If we choose to settle into a US Bank Account (Nostro) via FedWire, what component of the transaction is settled here? Are the funds not being sent to the destination country bank?
When a transaction is complete, the US solution provider is essentially holding on to the funds (minus their commission). These funds can be pushed into the local US Nostro account (via FedWire), from where the payout partner will have control of the money, or if the payout partner does not have a US Nostro account, then the funds are sent via international wire transfer, i.e. SWIFT to the bank account in the name of the payout partner in the country of their choice.
All of the money is transferred here (minus the solution provider’s commission).
