Philipp Lisibach, Chief Global Strategist/Head Global Investment Strategy, Credit Suisse (Schweiz) AG
Global Market Outlook
The economic recovery continues, providing a positive growth backdrop for capital markets. Yet uncertainties are arising, with the regulatory crackdown in China, the spread of the Delta variant, and increased geopolitical uncertainties. Philipp will explore what that means for investors’ positioning.
Martin Walder, Head Billing & Payments Standards, SIX
Roman Müller, Chief Operating Officer, Fides Treasury Services AG
Transforming Payment messaging to the new reality
With the migration of the SWIFT Network and many other payment market infrastructure to ISO 20022, major investments are being made by banks and providers. Martin will give a brief overview of the various developments, interrelationships and dependencies. Not only the systems and networks are evolving, but also the way of implementations and the usage of ISO 20022. It is no longer the question, whether to use messages or API, but when to use what and how to combine different technologies and channels. Roman will bring in the Fides view and outlook for clients. Together with Martin some of the most prominent questions will be covered.
