Conference at a glance

Collaborative finance in a fragmented world

Sibos returned to Toronto with a packed conference programme. From 18 - 21 September 2023, the Metro Toronto Convention Centre hosted expert speakers from across the financial ecosystem, bringing participants fascinating debates and big picture outlooks from some of the top names in finance.

The theme for the Sibos 2023 conference agenda was ‘Collaborative finance in a fragmented world’ addressing issues such as working together to create a sustainable and inclusive financial industry, risk management in times of economic and geopolitical uncertainty, and the balance between technology and trust.

Thought leaders from around the world shared insights across areas such as ESG standardisation, cross-border payments, post-trade data, digital currencies and advancing technologies such as AI and machine learning.

Conference favourite sessions returned including Inside Leadership, Spotlight, Big Issue Debates, Industry Sessions, Swift Innotribe and Sibos Academy, alongside new sessions for what was one of the most in-depth and exciting conference programmes to date.

Videos, including exclusive interviews and highlights, are available on Sibos TV, and registered participants can log in to catch select sessions on demand.
