Spanish Banking Industry: Transforming challenges into opportunities

I am delighted to inform you about the forthcoming SWIFT Business Forum Madrid 2013, which will take place on Tuesday 5 March 2013.

Gema Montoya, Head of SWIFT Iberia

Under the theme “Spain’s financial landscape: Transforming challenges into opportunities”, the program for the SWIFT Business Forum Madrid will examine how the financial ecosystem (banks, investment managers, broker/dealers and corporates) can capitalise on the ongoing changes and realise  opportunities in the new regulatory landscape.

Themes to be discussed include:

  • The impact of regulatory changes and extensive mergers in the banking industry: what is the best strategy for success?
  • Regulatory developments: what is coming, and how can you best build for the future? How do you deal with compliance in a rapidly changing world?
  • Streamlining corporate banking: what do corporates want, and are they getting it? Including a focus on ICC/BPO: new rules, new solutions.
  • Spanish securities market reform and T2S: what does it mean for you, and how should you be preparing?

The event will present an unrivalled opportunity to listen first-hand to supervisors and key financial market experts expressing their views on a range of issues that are critical for the continued development and competitiveness of your market – and to your institution’s ability to innovate for success in the new financial landscape.

In addition, during the Business Forum, SWIFT will demonstrate its continued commitment to supporting the Spanish community, with updates on our 2015 strategy, and on the new products and services we are developing to help meet the unique challenges that Spain’s financial markets face.

Registration will open soon on swift.com. Meanwhile we encourage you to save the date: 5 March 2013 at Casa de América, Paseo de Recoletos, 2, Madrid.
All my best wishes for the festive season and for a healthy and happy start to 2013.
