Sibos 2022

Make payments profitable.
Composability for the new reality.

“Progressive Finance for a changing World” was the theme at Sibos 2022, held in Amsterdam and we were glad we could join this conversation. Discussions were centred around digital transformation, navigating new risks, and highlighted the need for RTGS upgrades, Fraud, Core transformation & Cost efficiencies. 

We had some great conversations with our clients and partners on how banks and payment organizations can leverage composable platforms to optimize flexibility and leverage data intelligently for driving profitability and respond rapidly to changing customer expectations.

Meet the Experts: Delivering Integrated Payments for Small & Medium Businesses to Boost Engagement

With SMBs being the global economic growth engine, it is inevitable for banks to transform and adapt to the constantly changing SMB payments needs. Harmonization of data would act as a critical lever to unlock the future and create an innovative value proposition for seamless payments.

In this exclusive discussion, we explored the key findings from the World Payments Report 2022 and how banks and payment firms can capture the SMB value proposition through a platform strategy and implementing ISO 20022 to enhance their existing capabilities and explore emerging technologies.

SWIFT Agenda – CBDCs: How Could They be Used in International Payments?

Adoption of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) is clearly on the rise. According to the Bank for International Settlements, nine out of 10 central banks are now exploring CBDCs, with nine countries already live. Yet much of the focus to date has been on how CBDCs can achieve domestic policy goals, with less attention on how they could work cross-border. 

In this session, our panel debated how the global community can best ensure interoperability and interlink the numerous domestic CBDCs and payments systems springing up world-wide to enable the new currencies to be used for cross-border payments. We also showcased the results of our recent experiments and the role SWIFT could play in achieving future interoperability.
