Innovative international banker to open
Sibos 2018 Sydney

Shayne Elliott, CEO of leading regional bank ANZ, will deliver this year’s opening plenary at ICC Sydney on Monday 22 October 2018.

New Zealander Elliott has been widely credited with helping to turn ANZ into one of the region’s most high-profile agile organisations through new technology and cultural transformation.

Chantal Van Es, Head of Sibos, said: “We’re looking forward to Shayne welcoming this year’s delegates to ANZ’s home market of Australia. Shayne is a truly international banker with more than 25 years’ experience working in some of the most dynamic financial hubs, so he’s very well placed to discuss the forces impacting our industry.”


Check out this year’s conference programme

The theme for 2018 is ‘Enabling the digital economy’. The conference programme features a wide range of session types that will help delegates to gain understanding, build insights and share best practices.

This year’s four Big Issue Debates will cover disruption in the payments landscape, the future of international payments, cybersecurity, and the rise of Asia as a source of innovation. The speaker line-up for these must-attend sessions will be revealed shortly.

The conference programme is live on and will continue to evolve in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
