After nine years and $773M of funding, only 25% of cross-border payments made through Transferwise settle within 20 seconds or less. Some don't settle until the following day - or days later. That is not surprising. In spite of being a leading payments challenger, Transferwise is optimizing an outdated infrastructure of closed payment systems and corresponding banks.

Old shocks cast long shadows over the exchange rate

We propose a new exchange rate model using interest rate differential (IRD) time series as the input, and we fit the new model with empirical data for calibration.
