The Federal Reserve Board has announced that the Federal Reserve Banks will build and operate the FedNowSM Service, a new interbank 24x7x365 real-time gross settlement (RTGS) service with integrated clearing functionality to support faster payments in the United States. The decision to develop the new RTGS service (Off-site) was based on an assessment of public input and policy criteria regarding the Federal Reserve’s role in the payment system.
The Fed’s offering, called FedNow, will challenge a competing service already offered by The Clearing House, a private company owned by many of the country’s largest banks. The Fed, which expects to launch its service in 2023 or 2024, said a publicly run offering is needed to ensure the entire nation can reap the benefits of real-time payments.
