Accelerating digital transformation

In an era of rapid technological change, we gather in Panama City for the first time to discuss and debate how digital transformation is playing out in Latin America and the Caribbean, and beyond.

Firms are stepping up their efforts to harness the power of emerging and established technologies from APIs to cloud, AI to blockchain to deliver the fast and frictionless experience that customers now expect.

In parallel, our industry faces the major challenge of developing appropriate methods to tackle the new sources of risk created by digitalisation.

To meet this challenge, institutions must also transform from within. It is vital that we nurture the talent inside our organisations not only to acquire the necessary skills, but also to attract a truly diverse workforce ready to compete in the digital marketplaces of the future.

The SWIFT Latin American Regional Conference is a collaborative environment for the community to come together, share ideas and develop new solutions to ensure that the next generation of financial services stays relevant, competitive and resilient.

I look forward to welcoming you to Panama City!

Ignacio Blanco, Head of Latin America and the Caribbean, SWIFT
