Bank Muscat wins euro STP excellence award from Deutsche Bank.

Bank Muscat won a prestigious award from Deutsche Bank in recognition of operational excellence in the field of euro payments processing, a press release said. Bank Muscat was among a select group of regional institutions to receive the annual excellence award for straight-through-processing (STP) presented by Deutsche Bank for outstanding performance in euro denominated fund transfer and commercial payments.

The award recognised Bank Muscat's exceptional quality of SWIFT messages on euro payment, maintaining an outstanding error-free rate for remittances. The award was based on evaluation of the quality and accuracy of SWIFT payment messages routed through Deutsche Bank.

The award cited the bank's commitment to high standards of quality in meeting the stringent criteria for fund transfer. The bank's quality in the delivery of commercial payments and transfers, facilitated by a state-of-the-art in-house payment architecture which helps to consistently maintain high SWIFT standards for automated processing throughout the payment chain resulting in extremely high STP rates, was also highlighted in the citation.

The bank's Central Operations electronic payments department, Treasury back office and Global Trade Services department are handling fund transfer operations while the technical and security issues are handled by the Systems & Procedures department. The Financial Institutions Group, acknowledged as one of the leading FI teams in the region, has established more than 500 correspondent banking relationships across the world.

Deutsche Bank is among Bank Muscat's leading correspondent banks for euro payments. Deutsche Bank representatives commended the operational teams involved in processing euro payments at Bank Muscat for the error-free rate maintained consistently throughout the high volume of remittances processed during 2014.

A multi-award winning organisation, Bank Muscat's STP performance has been consistently lauded by the international financial and banking community for several years.
