SWIFT Corporates Forum Philippines 2017

This event is in partnership with Financial Executives Institute of the Philippines (FINEX)

Finex CFP2017

Join us at the SWIFT Corporates Forum: technology evolution for corporates- a focused session for the Filipino community

Despite the continued strong domestic demand, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has lowered the economic growth forecast for the Philippines in to 6.2%, in 2017. With the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) now in place, the Philippines has ambitious plans ahead to increase competitiveness by improving capacity, upgrading infrastructure, and bolstering economic growth, all of which are key factors to providing the nation with a stable foundation for its financial services.

Corporations in the Philippines are increasingly beginning to realise the need for adopting a more sophisticated, centralised and global approach to their finance and treasury management. As more and more Southeast Asian companies follow the trend in a global business approach it creates a challenge to provide finance and treasury support to sustain the business initiatives. Many of these growing businesses are striving to remain competitive with their competitors abroad to engage in different ways in order to pursue operational excellence and eliminate inefficiencies. With a growing demand from the corporate community to align the communication standards with banks in the domestic Filipino market, the Corporate-to-bank (C2B) initiative will bring greater alignment between corporates and banks on financial requirements. SWIFT is playing an essential role to provide a platform to define standardisation in the Filipino financial community.

The Forum will look at the challenges faced by finance and treasury managers in keeping up with the pace of change and provide updates on the current stages of C2B initiative and its future plans.
