Defining the next generation of financial services

Chris Church

Chris Church, Chief Executive, SWIFT Americas

The number of trends impacting the financial industry is proliferating. This means there is quite a lot for the SWIFT members to discuss and debate regarding how we should be defining the “next generation” of financial services. We believe that the Business Forum – West Coast is an ideal place for that dialogue to occur.

We will provide an update on our strategy, SWIFT2015, and how it can support you by lowering your costs and making the different industry networks, infrastructures and standards interoperable.

As a complement to the plenary sessions, we will feature a series of work sessions covering a range of SWIFT’s products and services: how to prepare for Release 7.0; the Alliance portfolio; implementing Standards and much more. We will also have a SWIFT showcase and an exhibition area featuring the latest offerings from the SWIFT vendor community.

We hope you will enjoy this SWIFT Business Forum – West Coast 2011 and are looking forward to seeing you.
