Standards & Regulation
Continuing the debate
Following on from our Future of Financial Standards conference in London, March 2014, the SWIFT Institute will bring a similar event to New York in Q4 2015.
The SWIFT Institute, SWIFT’s Standards Forum and MITs Center for Finance and Policy, join hands in 2015 to organise a conference on Standards & Regulation. The event will be held in New York City on Tuesday 3rd November.
Regulations are intended to make the financial industry safer and more transparent. It is a challenging task to translate legislative intent into manageable requirements for regulated entities to follow. It is equally challenging for regulated entities to implement regulations.
How can the financial industry and regulatory bodies work more closely together to overcome these challenges? How can standardisation play a role in easing this burden? Standards are embedded in the operational fabric of the financial industry to enable interoperability, reduce risk and increase efficiency in business processes from the front to back-office.
How can the financial industry and regulatory bodies work more closely together to overcome these challenges? How can standardisation play a role in easing this burden? What is needed from and for standards to facilitate regulatory compliance for the financial industry?
This one-day conference is devoted to an in-depth discussion aimed at answering these questions to begin building a platform between regulatory intent and its implementation. The day will feature panels of distinguished experts from academia, the financial industry and regulatory bodies focusing on three areas:
- Industry challenges with the implementation of regulations
- Standards as a foundation to align Intent and Interpretation
- Building the road-map for the solution
Don’t miss this important event! The conference is free to attend, but you must register. Space is limited, so register now.
