SWIFT Institute Student Challenge

Financial Solutions from the Next Generation


Welcome to the SWIFT Institute Student Challenges 2021 ASEAN.

This challenge is only open to select schools in the ASEAN community. It is an amazing opportunity for a few of your students to be exposed to the leaders of the global financial community, through attending Sibos (the world’s premier global financial services event) and presenting their solutions to the challenge to Sibos attendees  Plus a prize of 2500 EUR will be awarded to the winning team!

This is the sixth year in which we have run the Student Challenge, and the first time we have brought it to the ASEAN region. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss this with you, and/or present this opportunity to your students. Would you allow me this opportunity?

The Student Challenge asks Student teams, to submit their solution (does not have to be a working model) to the following:

How can technology enable the financial services industry to increase the development of cross-border payments and trade in the ASEAN region?
Consider this across the following areas:

• Common industry standards to facilitate greater harmonisation and interoperability
• The growth of capital markets
• Financial compliance in an increasingly digitised world

SUBIMISSION Window is now CLOSED, teams will be contacted soon.
