SWIFT for Manners
A portfolio of solutions for corporates built to overcome the challenges of multi-banking
As corporate treasurer of a multinational corporation, you may work with different banks for cash, trade and treasury services. Using SWIFT you can connect your business to multiple banks through a single, secure, bank-agnostic channel. Once connected, streamline and automate your business flows by communicating with your banking partners using our global standardised ISO and proprietary format (MT) messages.
On 23 and 24 May, the SWIFT for Manners community gathered in London to exchange views and opinions on how the industry can do more to solve the challenges faced by corporate treasurers when it comes to multi-banking. This year’s edition was characterised by open debate and interaction on a variety of topics.
Financial crime incorporates many types of activities, including fraud, bribery and corruption, insider dealing, terrorist financing and money laundering. Tackling these threats is a major concern for regulators, and is reflected in new legislation like the EU Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive. Today most corporates are expected to have an internal compliance programme in place, bringing a number of challenges, but also a number of opportunities for those who have decided to address it proactively.
Experience the premier annual event for the financial services community in Sydney. The conference, a yearly rally point for all banks to network, debate and collaborate around the future of payments; is also a tremendous opportunity for the corporate community to highlight the challenges faced when it comes to corporate treasury and trade. Join us at Sibos!
