The new Wire Transfer Regulations (WTR2) came into effect on June 26, 2017. The regulations require that accurate payer and beneficiary information accompanies the transfer of funds in order to further combat financial crimes and money laundering.

From October 11, 2017, payer detail fields will be mandatory on the PAA CAPITAL platform to ensure WTR2 compliance.
