#Innotribe startup challenge won by Epiphyte and Matchmove [#SIBOS]

I missed the startup challenge at innotribe this year – too many things happening and not enough Chris Skinner's to cover them all – but I do believe it is important to cover this event.

Basel III’s unintended consequences So, after the innovations in Poland, I go to a bankers’ breakfast meeting all about Basel III this morning.  Someone had to.  More specifically, the breakfast debated the requirement for intraday liquidity reporting. If you’re not up-to-speed with all of this, then it would do you no harm to read my…
