Among the many issues covered at Sibos 2015 there runs a common theme – the growing pace of innovation in payments and securities technology. Banks, broker-dealers, payment card companies, asset managers and other industry participants must adjust to the new digital realities if they are to keep pace with aggressive competitors, ever more sophisticated customers and increasingly demanding regulators.
Real-time payments, cryptocurrencies, digital wallets, the introduction of central clearing and reporting for over-the-counter derivatives, algorithmic trading and regulation – these and other challenges can only be properly met by a strategic re-think that in many cases requires the deployment of the latest and most effective digital solutions.
The 5th Annual FT-TCS BαNCS Financial Leaders Dinner Forum, to be hosted by the Financial Times and Tata Consultancy Services, will explore the challenge of change facing all professionals involved in payments and securities transactions. Our panellists will discuss what financial institutions are and should be doing to innovate and succeed in what has become a highly disrupted marketplace.
