Get set for SWIFT at Sibos 2021

22 September 2021 | 4 min read

Finance moves fast. To keep up with the pace, Sibos is the only place to be. Join us there – and be part of the future of finance.

Following the success of 2020’s all digital event, Sibos will once again be taking place entirely online from 11-14 October. This year, the theme of “Recharging Global Finance” takes centre stage, with a series of conversations, deep dives and strategy sessions focusing on how our industry can bounce back stronger than ever after an unprecedented period of disruption.

Complementing Sibos’ compelling programme, SWIFT will host a series of expert-led sessions covering key challenges facing our industry – and the solutions we are developing together with our community. 

Here’s what we have in store

Taking payments to the next level

We’ll take a look at the future of payments and how, in the years to come, both traditional and alternative payment systems will interoperate.

Learn more about how SWIFT and its community are thinking about the coexistence of multiple payment solutions, including the emergence of CBDCs and cryptocurrencies, new monetisation and commercial models, and what customers will expect.

Making cross-border payments frictionless

In an increasingly competitive landscape, financial institutions need to move fast to remove friction from cross-border payments. SWIFT can help, and at Sibos we’ll show you how. 

From payment pre-validation and streamlined case management to richer data and our enhanced platform, we’ll look at the tools available to help you deliver a next generation payments experience to your customers.

SWIFT at Sibos

Be part of the future of finance

SWIFT will feature as part of the main conference programme and host a series of expert conversations, deep-dives, and strategy sessions designed to help our customers navigate today’s complex challenges.

Powering smarter securities

In our session, “Securities tracking: Lighting the path to increased efficiency” learn more about how we’re collaborating with our community to develop a new service that will enable you to track securities transactions from end-to-end. 

We’ll analyse how this increases efficiency while reducing costs and risk – and how you can get involved.

Unlocking the potential of data for securities

Capital market participants exchange data in a wide variety of messaging formats and channels today, posing many challenges and slowing the progress of the data revolution in the securities industry. 

We’ll explore the practical and operational challenges of enabling different formats to interoperate successfully, and what can be done to overcome them.

SWIFT platform evolutions

Our mission is to enable seamless, frictionless and instant transactions from one account to another, anywhere in the world. And our enhanced platform is at the heart of this. 

The SWIFT platform is evolving, fast. We’ll look at the key drivers of this change, how we’re delivering already and what you need to do to take advantage. 

Join our open API revolution

APIs are the firepower behind today’s online communications, constantly connecting and exchanging data between applications and web servers to deliver information in real time, on demand. 

We’ll explain how you can start your API journey and benefit from the growing range of innovative API services available on SWIFT – across payments, treasury, compliance, securities and beyond.

What’s on the agenda?

This year’s SWIFT sessions will cover payments, securities, technology, compliance, data, innovation and more. Explore the full programme today and learn more about the exciting sessions we have planned for Sibos.

Streamlining sanctions screening

New developments around sanctions screening are emerging all the time – and SWIFT is at the centre of helping the community streamline the process.

We’ll analyse some of the current initiatives that banks are collaborating on to reduce sanctions friction points such as the launch of our new Transaction Screening Service, market guidelines on ISO 20022 screening, and new screening models.

Managing counterparty risk

With increasing digitisation, the cyber threat facing financial institutions has never been greater. On the SWIFT at Sibos programme this year, banks will share insights into how they’re successfully using Customer Security Programme (CSP) self-attestation data to manage counterparty risk, and provide tips on how you can too.

Harnessing the power of collaborative innovation

Industry-wide challenges call for industry-wide solutions. Through collaboration, together we can innovate quickly and keep up with customer expectations.

Where do the opportunities lie for collaborative innovation? We’ll show you how we’re working alongside financial institutions, fintechs and the wider ecosystem to deliver innovative services for the benefit of the entire community.
