Meet our speakers

About the session

The ICC Banking Commission is pleased to invite you to its traditional industry briefing at SIBOS that will provide an update on the commission’s latest advocacy efforts – including projects and on-going dialogue – as well as an insight into market trends.

The still highly manual and paper-based trade finance business is being greatly affected by digitalisation. The session will examine the various challenges and benefits brought by the advent of digitalisation and the emergence of new technologies in the field of trade finance. We will provide an overview of how universal guidelines and business practices require adaption and present updates from ICC’s working group on digitalisation.

The panel of high-level ICC experts will also discuss findings from this year’s ICC Global Survey: Securing Future Growth and thereby touch upon the current state of the global trade finance gap and developments associated with traditional trade finance and supply chain finance products – all of which will be substantiated by analysis and findings from ICC’s Trade Register.

Topics to be covered:

  • Latest news from ICC’s global advocacy efforts and its new strategy

  • Update on ICC’s Working Group on Digitalisation in Trade Finance

  • Update from ICC’s Regulatory Advocacy Group and the ICC Trade Register
  • Update from the latest ICC Global Survey: Securing Future Growth

About the session

With the rapid rise of cryptocurrencies over the last few years and many instruments seeing significant price growth, is the intent behind their creation leading to greater financial crime risk? With many cryptocurrencies un-regulated, and multiple regulatory jurisdictions calling for greater control, seeking to enshrine them within AML and CTF financial legislation, what are the risks posed? With this in mind, how can financial institutions remain vigilant and agile to stay ahead of iniquitous actors in an increasingly virtual, mobile and hyper-connected world. And given the challenges of detecting illicit financial activity using established currencies and payment methods, how can we combat criminal activity linked to cryptocurrencies? Who will bear the responsibility for financial crime compliance? Will FinTechs be held accountable, or will banks need to add this to their overflowing portfolio of responsibilities? And how will cryptocurrency-related crime regulation evolve over the next 12-24 months? With a strong link to new technologies, could cryptocurrencies bring benefits as well as risks? Or are the compliance ramifications too great?

About the session

After a steady run towards globalisation for 20 years, world trade is potentially facing serious protectionism for the first time in the 21st century. Trade finance revenues at top banks saw further decline recently despite higher interest rates and commodity prices. Faster payment settlements are bringing down working capital needs and emergence of alternative trade finance providers presents new challenges for banks. At the same time, compliance and fraud risks remain a threat. With this challenging background, what are the key focus areas for banks as we progress towards a more digitised world of trade finance. Will higher regulation make trade a less lucrative product for the industry going forward? How are banks dealing with the growing threat of trade wars? Is technology helping them grow business or is it primarily a cost focused drive towards digitisation?

About the sessions

Session 1: The digital revolution: Managing the emerging AML and regulatory risks of new payment methods

Date: 24 October 2018

Time: 09.45-10.45

Room: Conference Zone L3, Conference Room 5

With the rapid rise of cryptocurrencies over the last few years and many instruments seeing significant price growth, is the intent behind their creation leading to greater financial crime risk? With many cryptocurrencies un-regulated, and multiple regulatory jurisdictions calling for greater control, seeking to enshrine them within AML and CTF financial legislation, what are the risks posed? With this in mind, how can financial institutions remain vigilant and agile to stay ahead of iniquitous actors in an increasingly virtual, mobile and hyper-connected world. And given the challenges of detecting illicit financial activity using established currencies and payment methods, how can we combat criminal activity linked to cryptocurrencies? Who will bear the responsibility for financial crime compliance? Will FinTechs be held accountable, or will banks need to add this to their overflowing portfolio of responsibilities? And how will cryptocurrency-related crime regulation evolve over the next 12-24 months? With a strong link to new technologies, could cryptocurrencies bring benefits as well as risks? Or are the compliance ramifications too great?

Session 2: Sanctions filter testing: Determining effectiveness and driving efficiency in a fast changing sanctions landscape

Date: 24 October 2018

About the session

Financial institutions in emerging markets are introducing innovative solutions faster than their peers in more developed markets. Advances in FinTech make it easier, quicker and cheaper for them to accurately assess customer behaviour, needs and risks, thereby opening the door to new business models. Asia Pacific’s booming e-commerce and vast migration of middle-classes are giving rise to new financial services products to meet demand for coverage and risk appetite – digital inclusion has now outpaced and effectively substituted financial inclusion. This panel will unearth what’s happening here in Asia Pacific, why it’s more pervasive here and decipher the impact on financial services across the next decade.
