Bank of America Corporation Research Report

On September 17, 2013, Bank of America Corporation (Bank of America) announced
that it has launched Accelerated Payments to Asia - a service designed both
for global institutions that remit commercial payments to beneficiaries in
Asia and for Asia-based institutions whose trade within the region is
denominated in US dollars. According to the Company, the launch of this new
solution aims to improve the speed and efficiency with which banks and
corporations make high value US dollar payments to Asian markets. Greg Murray,
Head of U.S. Dollar Wire and Clearing Products, Global Transaction Services at
Bank of America, said, "In today's environment, companies making U.S. dollar
payments to and within Asia can face hurdles that ultimately impinge on their
working capital management. These hurdles center on the time zone differences
between the Asian markets and the U.S. With Accelerated Payments to Asia, we
have eliminated those issues, providing banks and their customers a much
faster settlement process that also offers improved visibility and control
over their cash." The Full Research Report on Bank of America Corporation -
