I’ve been asked by a few folks to comment on the Investment
Roadmap that SWIFT is pulling together with FIX Protocol Ltd (FPL), the
Financial products Markup Language (FpML) and the International Securities
Association for Institutional Trade Communication (ISITC).
I was going to comment on this roadmap, but restrained myself due to a fairly
cynical view expressed by a fellow
blogger, and because I wanted to wait to see some action or
outputs. However, after several people in the SWIFT community asked me to
express a view, here’s my twopenneth worth.
