The next generation of collaborative innovation

Open banking is gaining momentum, with financial institutions reconsidering their service offering and relationships with FinTechs and other third parties. It’s become a global trend as we settle into 2018 and will be one of the topics explored at Sibos.

In line with this, the 2018 SWIFT Institute Student Challenge calls on Australian-based students to devise new ways of protecting personal information in an open banking environment. The final presentations will take place on Wednesday 24 October during Sibos week.
