Welcome to SOFE 2017!

SWIFT Operations Forum 2017 stats

The world of banking is at an inflection point; technology, regulation and cyber-crime are all evolving at a rapid pace. Banks need to stay resilient and secure, whilst continuing to innovate and navigate change to remain competitive and meet the expectations of their customers.

In this environment, operational excellence remains a crucial foundation for financial institutions to build and secure the future. SOFE has established itself as an unrivalled forum in which to debate our industry’s operational challenges and discuss how to achieve and maintain the levels of operational excellence and security we all aim for.
