“Network, build good friendships, and bring good ideas home”

Commonwealth Bank's Albert Naffah shares his thoughts about the Australian financial services sector and why Sibos is still going strong at 40

As an early and frequent adopter of innovations in payments and financial services, Australia is a perfect host for Sibos.

Albert Naffah, Managing Director - Strategic Initiatives, Cashflow and Transaction Services, Commonwealth Bank, sees Sibos 2018 Sydney as an opportunity to showcase the country’s innovative spirit to the rest of the world.

In the below video, Albert outlines Sydney’s role as one of the world’s leading financial hubs and the country’s sophisticated financial services system: “A lot of the great solutions that we see around the world in payments and banking have come out of Australia, which most people don’t know.”

He sees Sibos as a platform for informed discussion about delivering great customer experience using emerging technologies, and dialogue about how to integrate the instant payments networks springing up around the world. 

Going strong at 40

As Sibos prepares to celebrate 40 years of collaborative innovation, Albert believes that the event has a crucial role in helping people to understand the latest industry developments and apply them to their customer base.

He said: “Sibos is still going strong because it’s an awesome way to network, build good friendships, and bring good ideas home.”
