Seizing the opportunity

As the US financial services landscape undergoes unprecedented change, we will gather in one of the world’s most vibrant and innovative financial centres for payments, securities and technology – New York City.

At this year’s event we will explore how the SWIFT community can seize the opportunity that transformation can offer and guarantee the continued success of the financial industry.

More than ever, institutions are rapidly evolving their business models, harnessing the power of data and emerging technologies, as well as exploring the creation of new platforms in an age of open banking.

In parallel, the industry is facing ever-changing hurdles related to cyber threats, data protection and increasingly complex regulatory requirements – making the task of navigating innovation increasingly challenging. 

The SWIFT Business Forum New York is a collaborative environment for business leaders to come together, share ideas and develop new solutions to ensure the next generation of financial services stays relevant, competitive and resilient. 

I look forward to welcoming you at Chelsea Piers.

The venue

Pier Sixty

Pier Sixty, The Lighthouse & Current have become landmarks for special events in New York City. Following Pier Sixty’s enormous success shortly after its opening in 1998, the business soon expanded by acquiring its second unique waterfront venue, The Lighthouse, in 2000. Opened in 2015, Current, the newest venue, is the standard for special events and celebrations on the city waterfront.
