Together with our role in standardisation, SWIFT offers a portfolio of innovative products and services that help our users get the most out of SWIFT messaging. Our solutions seek to address challenges faced by the SWIFT community, to reduce risks, eliminate costs and increase efficiencies. SWIFT is at the forefront of innovative application of technology within the financial sector. We are also engaging the global fintech ecosystem via industry challenges, POVs and POCs for creation of innovative overlay services over the SWIFT services. An example of this is the 2017 SWIFTgpi global industry challenge held in Singapore where global fintechs participanted along with global banks in a 2-day workshop, and two of the winning Fintechs are currently progressing POVs that build potential new cross-border payments services.
At SWIFT, we have an uncompromising approach to information security which we recognise is a key value driver for our customers and a major differentiator of our services.
