The Data stream at Sibos 2019

The world of payments is experiencing unprecedented changes, completely reshaping the way we move value across the world. The advent of real-time payments is opening up tremendous opportunities for industry players, and smarter data has a central role to play. 

Quality data enables payments to happen faster and more seamlessly, makes compliance more effective and efficient, and drives business forward. However, navigating the sheer volume of the data available can be challenging. 

This year’s SWIFT@Sibos data stream will gather industry and SWIFT data specialists to examine how to harness the power of data. Discover how smarter data can enable financial institutions to gain greater insights into their business and relationships with customers, counterparts, and market infrastructures to deliver better and more competitive services.

It’s all about data: using advanced analytics as an investigative tool

Advanced analytics are a useful tool to support financial crime compliance. They help us to gauge the impact of global events, including the implications of the introduction of sanctions and the development of trends such as AML de-risking.


In this session, SWIFT and Financial Network Analytics (FNA) will draw on documented cases to discuss how the use of advanced analytics can:

  • be extended to perform ongoing monitoring of cash flow
  • provide early warning signs of unusual trends
  • predict outcomes using ‘what if’ analysis

Keeping up with RMB internationalisation 


Tuesday 24 September

Location: SWIFT Room 1

With more than 1,900 financial institutions now using the RMB for payments with China and Hong Kong, the internationalisation is strategically important for banks and FIs.

In this session we will examine:

  • how the RMB stands against other currencies
  • the latest SWIFT RMB data 
  • trends influencing the RMB’s internationalisation
