SWIFT Institute at Sibos Singapore

Bridging the Gap Between Academia and the Financial Industry

“Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher.”


We are just one week away from Sibos 2015 in Singapore. Throughout the week you will have the opportunity to attend lectures given by some of the world’s leading academics on a wide range of topics impacting the global financial industry. Each lecture will last 30 minutes, including time for Q&A. All lectures will take place on the SWIFT Stand.

On Wednesday 14 October at 8am the SWIFT Institute Meets the Compliance Forum in a panel session looking at the evolution of third party payment providers.

In the SWIFT Auditorium on Tuesday 13 October at 4:30pm look out for the first ever Sibos quiz show – A Question of Finance, brought to you by the SWIFT Institute. The quiz show will feature mixed teams of academics and financial industry professionals competing on their financial as well as general knowledge.

And finally, immediately following A Question of Finance, you are welcome to join us for a drink at the SWIFT Institute and SWIFT’s Business Intelligence Cocktail Reception. All are welcome!
