Fiserv Preparedness for U.S. Treasury Economic Impact Payments

The American Rescue Plan, which includes $1,400 Economic Impact Payments (EIP) to qualified individuals, has now been signed into law. The first two rounds of EIP generated unprecedented high levels of utilization of financial technology in general and of Fiserv solutions specifically. Fiserv has taken substantial actions to accommodate this next round of EIP. Details about the measures we have taken to prepare at the enterprise, business unit and solution levels can be found in a publication posted to ServicePoint (PUB0021733, March 4). 

A second ServicePoint publication provides information about content and tips that you can use to prepare your financial institution and consumers for the stimulus payments (PUB0021953, March 11). If you are unable to access ServicePoint, please feel free to request the publications using the webform below.  


Managing the Transition from LIBOR to SOFR 

There is a significant industry-wide change underway related to index rates. The LIBOR index is expected to be discontinued at the end of 2021. The US Federal Reserve started the Alternative Reference Rate Committee (ARRC) to recommend a rate to replace LIBOR, and SOFR has emerged as the likely alternative. To help you prepare for this transition, we have put together a guidebook that contains valuable background information and key considerations.

Survey of Fraud Prevention Professionals Identifies Ways to Fight Financial Crime 

Every year, it's estimated that 2 to 5 percent of our global GDP is laundered through worldwide financial networks, yet only 1 percent is intercepted. The disruption from COVID-19 has presented even more opportunities for fraudsters to take advantage. Experts in anti-money laundering, fraud and financial crime prevention and compliance responded to the Fiserv Financial Crime Survey 2020. This survey provides valuable insights on the state of financial crime in 2020 and highlights the crucial role technology, education and anti-financial crime culture play in building the operational resilience needed to counter emerging threats.
