The payments market is growing rapidly and is expected to continue to grow at an average of 6% per year until 2025. We have seen a rise in cashless payments in countries with rapid growth and technology adoption and, driven by changes in the retail payments space, clients are expecting faster and cheaper payments across the board. At the same time, the financial industry still faces the challenges posed by increasing cyber risks and new cyber regulation as well as ever increasing compliance costs.

In this environment, operational excellence remains a crucial foundation for financial institutions to build and secure the future.

SOFE has established itself as an unrivalled forum in which to debate our industry’s operational challenges and discuss how to achieve and maintain the levels of operational excellence and security we all aim for.

The conference programme will again combine plenary sessions addressing the big picture questions that really matter, with in-depth work sessions on SWIFT’s products and services and the CSP. We will examine all the key challenges you’re facing, as well as progress in addressing them, particularly looking at where collaborative efforts can drive innovative solutions to common problems.

Work sessions

At the heart of SOFE are the work sessions. They are a key feature of this conference and offer participants a wealth of information about the upcoming developments in SWIFT products and services.
