The Banking Scene Afterwork

Shaping the future of the financial services: the power of collaboration - 22/10

With Saskia Devolder, Head of Europe North at SWIFT, we'll investigate what this power of collaboration means, in history, as well as in the future of SWIFT.

Today's challenges required banks to work together, whether that is for #transactionservices, #cybercrime or #fraudprevention

When you hear all the buzz, collaboration seems to be the new buzzword, but SWIFT is proof that banks have always collaborated to make sure they can provide the best possible service.

Agreed, more collaboration is essential to anticipate future challenges of the industry and SWIFT has the ambition to remain the glue to make all this possible. In the context of SWIFTs new strategy and the SIBOS conference two weeks ago week, this session promises to be an eye-opening session with plenty of new insights!

SWIFT recently announced its new strategic direction. Javier Pérez-Tasso, CEO of Swift: “We are innovating the underlying infrastructure that financial institutions use to make transactions run even faster end-to-end, and at the same time further reducing costs for the community through industry-shared services in the areas of cyber, fraud and compliance. We are creating a broad platform with faster technology and smarter and better services that the industry can trust as a foundation for innovation towards their own end-clients.”
