Sibos 2018


22 – 25 October, 2018
International Convention Centre (ICC), Sydney

Sibos 2018 is returning to Sydney!

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 ‘Enabling the digital economy’, the 2018 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.

Stop by our stand at H02 to meet the team. We look forward to seeing you there!

Who is regulation for in securities markets? After all that investment, who has benefited the most?

A lot has been achieved since the financial crisis in the area of banking regulation and supervision. Whilst regulatory compliance uses up capital and human resources, consumes IT budgets and puts pressure on margins, it allows financial institutions to review their existing business models in line with existing market practices to better serve their customers. Handling the complexity of the new regulatory framework creates dynamics and fosters the innovation process in a sustainable way. At the end, who is benefiting the most?

Breaking the trade barriers: is the decentralization of trade finance inevitable?

The trade landscape is quickly evolving into an industry that is both digitised and decentralised. Removing trade barriers is key to fueling economic growth, and this is further driven through collaboration between a healthy ecosystem of trade participants: the creation of decentralized networks. This panel will discuss how new technologies, like cloud, blockchain and APIs, provide the ability to move trade data and assets seamlessly between networks, systems, and applications, without the need for a central party or intermediary, something that is not possible today. Can technology deconstruct and reinvent at the industry rather than firm level? With these changing dynamics, will we see a new model emerge that challenges the existing approach to governance in trade? Is the rise of decentralized trade platforms, such as Marco Polo, enabling the industry’s future? Will the network allow for an agnostic approach to both technology and infrastructure? How will banks interact with their customers in a distributed trade ecosystem?

Blockchain in the securities industry: from use case to business case

The Australian Securities Exchange will switch on the world’s first industrial-scale blockchain in financial services in Q1 2021. What will change, and why? Backed by market infrastructures, blockchain has arguably reached an inflection point. How could DLT change the custody industry by adding value and efficiency?
