23-26 September 2019 – London
For millennia, the people of Africa have been guided by a proverb “An old story does not open the ear as a new one does.” It speaks to the power of new challenges, new beginnings and the adaption to an ever-changing world.
As Africa's largest bank, with a key focus on delivering world-class digital solutions on the continent, we are perfectly positioned to be your partner and guide as you take your next steps into the new and evolving African Economy.
Our experience and partnerships in the 20 markets in which we operate has made us the continental experts in trade finance, custody and cash management, by providing innovative solutions to make the most of the shifting digital landscape in Africa.
As such, we participate in global forums to drive real progress across this continent we call home. We have a top-level delegation attending SIBOS (the Swift International Banking Operations Seminar) 2019 to engage on matters affecting our continent, our clients and industry. We have co-sponsored the event for over 10 years as part of our unwavering commitment to advancing banking in Africa.
SIBOS brings together influential leaders from financial institutions, market infrastructures, multinational corporations and technology partners to connect on business and shape the future of the financial industry. The event is facilitated and organised by SWIFT (the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) for the SWIFT community. Large multinational companies have sent delegations in recent years connecting with the financial services industry.
SIBOS is much more than a conference and exhibition. It is a unique forum to collaborate and take collective action in payments, securities, cash management and trade finance.
