Welcome to the SWIFT Business Forum Frankfurt

This free event, reserved exclusively for SWIFT customers in Germany, will explore the latest trends in the industry and allow you to discuss these trends with your peers from across the German financial industry.

The programme for this year’s forum will focus on the topics that are top of mind across our industry – the evolution of the European payments landscape, instant payments, new business models and products that are emerging as a result of PSD2 and instant payments, the future of cross-border payments, financial crime compliance and cyber-security.

"Very interesting topics and speakers, excellent opportunity to network with my peers"

Future of Payments

In 2017, cyber-security awareness reached new levels and financial institutions worked towards the 31 December deadline for self-attestation against SWIFT’s Customer Security Programme controls. The CSP is here to stay and will play an increasingly important role in the way that we look at risk in our industry and how you communicate with counterparts. Are you prepared?

In a more international context, SWIFT gpi has proven that innovating correspondent banking works. What will the new features add to your cross-border payments offering?

We remain fully committed to our role as a trusted partner for the provision of financial crime compliance solutions for the financial industry. With the great success of the KYC Registry and our central Sanctions Screening solution, this year sees the launch of various transaction pattern detection products which will help you strengthen your existing fraud controls and reinforce fraud prevention processes.

As the speed of technological change keeps increasing, banks must keep up with new trends and strive to stay ahead of the curve to ensure that they are delivering best-in-class solutions to their customers. To explore this theme, we will hold a dedicated session looking at the relevant trends in the areas of artificial intelligence and robotics.

You will hear from SWIFT’s CEO and the chairman of the SWIFT National Member Group for Germany, as well as renowned industry speakers and SWIFT experts, on all of these topics and learn about what SWIFT is doing to meet the needs of its community. As always, this one-day event will be an excellent opportunity to discuss and share experiences on topics of great relevance to you and your business.

The event will take place mainly in German, with a few sessions delivered in English.

I look forward to seeing you the Business Forum!

Michael Formann
Head of Germany and Austria
