SWIFT must stick to its “True North” (#Sibos 18)

As we leave SIBOS 2013, there are many good memories from the great conversations around innotribe, to the buzz of the exhibit hall – and yes, there was a buzz this year – to the immersion in the mainstream sessions to the fun evenings engaging in fine wine, food and dialogue.  That’s what SIBOS is…

You might want world peace, but get real (#Sibos 17 #innotribe)

So we just finished the day with the closing plenaries. Yes, plenaries plural. First there was the innotribe closure and then the SIBOS closure, and these were very different affairs.

T2S, CCP, CSD, SSS, LSEG … WTF? (#Sibos 15)

After a great cappuccino from Franco, it’s off to the first session of the day which is a different one to my norm.  It’s T2S time! Yes, I do talk about and have many links with the investment and post-trade community thanks to my work on MiFID and EMIR, but I just don’t blog about…

And the winners of the #Innotribe Start-up Challenge are … (#Sibos 14)

Waking up on day four, the final day of SIBOS, I am greeted by yet another hazy sunny morning and a complementary hazy head. That's normal. So finishing off day three was a wonderfully relaxed experience. First, congratulations to the winners of the Innotribe Start-up Challenge at #Sibos! The top Start-up is KlickEx (who gave…
