Sibos Insider

Welcome to the June edition of Sibos Insider – keeping you up to date on all the latest news around the conference, exhibition and practical information for Sibos 2016 Geneva.


A new look programme for 2016

The 2016 conference offers delegates a refreshed format and agenda, which reflects the transformative changes taking place in the finance sector and among the clients it serves.

Check out the conference programme on to find out more about this year’s sessions.

Closing speaker revealed

World-renowned Swiss adventurer and environmentalist Bertrand Piccard will deliver the closing plenary at the Palexpo on Thursday 29 September.

Sven Bossu, Head of Sibos, said: “Bertrand encapsulates all of the qualities that financial leaders will need to deal with the opportunities and challenges in today’s financial ecosystem.”


Introducing this year’s streams

There will be four streams running throughout Sibos week.

The Banking stream will focus on payments and correspondent banking, with in-depth sessions exploring the challenges of delivering upgraded service propositions in a highly regulated and increasingly digitised world.

Tackling one of the industry’s defining issues, the Compliance stream will provide delegates with insights into financial crime compliance and counter terrorism financing practice and policy, and also provide information on the tools, tactics and strategies adopted by banks.

In a technology-led industry, the behaviours and attitudes of individuals are a key consideration. The new Culture stream will explore the skills, practices and methodologies that will help the finance sector contribute to society in the long term.

The Securities stream will look at how the sector is deploying technology innovation to drive new efficiencies and develop new services. The sessions will examine the ways in which market infrastructure operators, securities services firms, technology vendors and new service providers are collaborating and competing across the securities markets.


Meet this year’s exhibitors

Over 180 financial institutions, application and middleware vendors, systems integrators, consultants, and central clearing systems will be exhibiting at Palexpo.

All the biggest names, all in one place.
