Sibos 2019 will take place at ExCeL London from 23 to 26 September.
It is the first time Sibos will have been hosted in the English capital, and only the second visit to the UK following an early event in Brighton in 1985. The city is renowned for its affinity for finance and innovation and it is home to many of the leading figures in the financial services industry.
The SWIFT Institute returns to Sibos bringing some of the keenest thought leaders from academia (and industry) to share insights and the latest research on topics impacting the global financial industry. Research grant recipients will present their insights on: DLT / blockchain, shadow payments, gender diversity, banking platforms, instant payments and cyber. Experts will also discuss artificial intelligence, geopolitics, the disruptive future and how to stay ahead of it, financial market infrastructures and data science.
We will host our Student Challenge 2019 finals. Five university teams will present their ideas on how to improve fraud detection and prevention in an increasingly instant payment world. The winner will receive GBP 20,000.
Finally, on Talent Thursday we will host some of the finalists of the global bi-annual Ethics & Trust in Finance Prize competition. Tomorrow’s leader will share their visions of a more ethical financial industry.
