Sibos 2017


16-19 October 2017
Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC)
Toronto, Canada

Sibos is back to the Americas this year!

Sibos is the world’s premier financial services event organised by SWIFT. The annual conference and exhibition connects more than 8,000 executives, decision makers and thought leaders from across the industry. What started out as a banking operations seminar in 1978, has grown into the premier business forum for the global financial community to debate and collaborate in the areas of payments, securities, cash management and trade.

Under the theme of ‘Building for the Future’, the 2017 conference will explore the industry’s burning issues, including cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, the impact of geopolitical and regulatory shifts, and data and identity.

Once again, our experts have been invited to speak at some of the key panel sessions.

We will also present three initiatives designed to take our industry forward: a market survey on post-trade outsourcing in partnership with Oliver Wyman, a blockchain-based asset servicing platform developed with Tata Consulting Services, and an harmonisation initiative on due diligence questionnaires for sub-custody led by the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME).

Stop by our stand at I36 to meet the team. We look forward to seeing you there!

Securities: Beyond Settlement & Reconciliation, how can standards bring efficiency?

With 90 + percentage of STP in the settlement flows, there is still an opportunity to automate and increase the STP level other business processes such as collateral, securities financing, proxy voting. Looking for the account servicers to provide better solutions for these business areas, will the standards as we know them today provide a solution or will we need the assistance of new technology or a combinations of both?
