Welcome to The Banker’s Day 1 Programme for Sibos 2022: Monday 10 October


12:15 BST: Connecting digital islands: Joining up digital currencies and payment systems

The panel will explore what banks, central banks and payment networks need to do to ensure interoperability between the existing and the new. For instance, how will banks on different networks be able to identify themselves and ensure that transactions are securely signed? They will also discuss how fragmentation of the global financial system can be avoided in the context of such rapid innovation, and debate which CBDC model - interoperability, interlinking and single global platform - is most likely to win out in the future.

12:30 BST: Banks need a crypto-asset strategy

While the use of crypto assets is growing, it’s possible that its growth to date has been hampered by an absence of clear crypto-asset strategies from banks.

We discuss how banks can add value for customers and generate revenue by acting as a bridge between the fiat and digital asset environments.

12:30 BST: Powering payments: the dawning of a data-rich era

Better payments data cannot be achieved by any one institution alone; it must be adopted in a coordinated way across the payments ecosystem. As the industry converges on a new standard of messaging, join the panel of industry experts as they explore the challenges, risks and long-term benefits in the move to richer and more structured data.
