Out of Cap, BCG and McKinsey which one projects the biggest market and highest profits? I only want to read that one.

'the results have been verified by the SWIFT network, so all numbers are deemed to be pretty accurate here'. I remember doing a workshop with a major bank in which the bank presented their stats based only on SWIFT payments; the bank exec said 'so where's all the rest? Where's the Hawala?'. According to the World Bank, 'Global remittance flows, including those to high-income countries, are expected to be $550 billion in 2013'.
BCG also say that alternative payments serve as entry and retention vehicle for the savings account, one of the most lucrative banking products.
and that increasing demand for x-b is driven by rising trade flows w/w; and strong economic growth in rapidly developing economies
and McKinsey describe a shift away from structured finance towards open account, particularly in the fast-growth economies
which implies the no of lower value x-b trns is increasing faster than the average

Perhaps it is time for a meta-report that takes each of these partial views into payments and aggregates them into a comprehensive view?
