The banking industry is once again gearing up for SIBOS, where Basel III will be driving the agenda.
SWIFT’s annual conference and exhibition is, this year, being held in Toronto, Canada. The five-day event is expected to attract some 8,000 delegates from across the banking world.
Details of the conference programme have been announced and the focus will be around four main topics:
- Geographic shifts
- The changing landscape of the financial industry
- How emerging technologies will impact our industry
Big areas of focus are likely to be Basel III, liquidity and working capital optimisation, negotiating the new derivatives landscape, e-invoicing, SEPA, mobile payments, correspondent banking at the crossroads, sanctions and AML, electronic bank account management, securities reference data and emerging markets.
Concurrent with the banking conference, corporates are being invited to attend a complementary event.
The Forum for Corporates will take place on 20 September and 21 September. This event will get businesses together to discuss working capital management, e-invoicing, and trade and supply chain automation among other topics.
