SWIFT Institute Challenge open for submissions!

The SWIFT Institute announces the launch of a new competition targeted at university students. The SWIFT Institute Challenge 2016 asks students to address a real world challenge being faced by remittance senders, receivers and their banks, and is open to any UK-based recognised university, or centre of learning, with an interest in banking.

The SWIFT Institute Challenge 2016 will focus on remittances sent via banks operating in the UK market. Each applicant will be required to identify a solution that would enable a bank’s customer to send money cross-border, via their own bank, to an individual in a country where there is little or no banking infrastructure. Applicants must submit a written report of no more than 10,000 words and will be judged by financial industry practitioners.

See full details and apply to the Challenge here.
