SWIFT introduces Watch for Securities, a new business intelligence solution that will help securities market participants to monitor and gain valuable business insights from their network traffic. The new Watch for Securities offering is expected to go live in 2015 with an early adopter programme at the beginning of the year.
Built on a secure and single online platform, Watch for Securities provides consolidated access to monthly aggregated global, regional and country level data for securities messages. It offers highly reliable data that institutions can use to adjust their systems and focus their activities. It can also be used for a number of purposes including benchmarking and analysis of market trends, activity share and operational indicators. Initially, Watch for Securities will cover asset servicing and settlement messages for equities and fixed income markets.
If you want to know more about this interesting new offering, please contact the BI Marketing team for further information.
At the end of 2013, the Watch offering started its migration to a new state-of-the-art Business Intelligence platform beginning with FIN Traffic Analytics, followed by Value Analytics at the start of 2014.
Now the time has come to announce the next upcoming migration modules:
End October, your InterAct Traffic Analytics will be migrated to the new platform, followed by Message Cost Analytics (FIN, IA, FA) and FileAct Traffic Analytics around the end of the year. Billing Analytics will be migrated during Q1 2015.
For each new module migration, we will further communicate on the available collateral and upcoming webinars to support you.
For more details on the migration, visit our Analytics migration webpage.
SWIFT's September RMB Tracker shows that over the past two years, RMB payments worldwide have nearly tripled in value. In addition, the RMB is now supported by a much broader base with 35% more financial institutions using the RMB for payments with China and Hong Kong.
This RMB Tracker provides key statistics to understand the progress made in China's Renminbi (RMB) towards becoming an international currency.
On top of the RMB Tracker, we offer RMB Market Insights. This report is designed as a mean to track in detail and follow the growth of RMB and its impact on the financial industry as a whole. The report will help with identifying the top currencies including their growth across various markets, as well as the top countries using RMB across all these markets. In addition, an analysis of specific message types containing RMB transactions is included, showing the number of transactions, as well as transaction value and activity share versus total SWIFT.
For more information about RMB Market Insights, please contact your Account Manager or Watch@swift.com.
