SWIFT Business Forum Moscow 2019

18 April 2019
Annual General Meeting

Building on 30 years of collaboration

Taking place for the 10th year running, this free one-day event, reserved exclusively for SWIFT users in Russia and neighbouring countries, focused on key trends affecting both Russia and the financial industry as a whole. As in previous years, the event was combined with the ROSSWIFT AGM.

The event represented a unique networking opportunity to join the discussions with regulatory authorities, major banks and market infrastructures. The continually growing audience clearly reflects Russia’s position as one of the largest SWIFT user communities in the world.

The event was conducted in Russian, with English simultaneous translation.

The wrap-up report in English and Russian are available.

The banking landscape is changing fast - join us at the Moscow Business Forum to debate the latest financial industry trends.
Head of Russia and CIS, SWIFT
