Before the madness begins [#SIBOS #SIBOS2014 #Innotribe]

So here we all are, descending on Boston's seaport area for SIBOS 2014. It seems strange to arrive here and be greeted by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse* … … but maybe that’s an omen of things to come (it’s all downhill from here). Today, a Sunday, is rehearsal for innotribe, so we are…

What are we going to talk about at #SIBOS? Part Two

We have a Financial Services Club meeting this Thursday with a panel previewing what we will be talking about at SIBOS.  Therefore, I thought I would conclude my background on this to say that it will be all the usual stuff: regulations, regulations and regulations, as discussed in my last post. Looking at the SIBOS website,…

What are we going to talk about at SIBOS? Part One

We have a Financial Services Club meeting this Thursday with a panel previewing what we will be talking about at SIBOS.  Therefore, I thought I would provide some background by noting that, for the past few years, we’ve talked a lot at SIBOS about regulations, and this year is no different.

2013 was the year for renewal

This is my penultimate review of 2013, as we head towards the shutdown season, so here goes 2013 was the year of meditation. Banks had the chance to think, reflect, plan and look ahead. After five years of manic panic, hysteria, anger, fear, angst and doubt, 2013 was the first year we could actually have…

Most notably, the Chi-x BAT effect noted in our Stockholm launch meeting of the Nordic Financial…

Did Chris Skinner achieve the Mission Impossible? (#SIBOS 20!)

OK, OK, I was going to stop talking about SIBOS as it’s already history, but there was one outstanding matter, if not two. Did I achieve the Mission Impossible, and get an update on the Investment Roadmap that would unite FIX, FpML, SWIFT, XBRL, FISD and ISITC? and How come I haven’t talked about the…

Remembering #SIBOS 2013 in pictures

Due to the poor WiFi conectivity last week – did I mention that? – I didn’t post many photos of SIBOS.  Usually, I would post a whole load, so here are some of my favourite memories of last week. Obviously, there are the memories of Dubai itself, with Burj Khalifa and Burj Al-Arab mentioned in…
