"Can Technology Carry the Regulation Burden?"

Can technology be leveraged in the compliance space to decrease the impact of regulatory arbitrage? How can the industry collaborate to harness technology for regulatory compliance in a non-competitive space and use the resulting cost advantages to stay ahead of the challenges? Should the capabilities and limits of technology be factored more effectively into the creation of regulations?

"Lessons Learned from European Payments Integration"

With the continued globalization of financial activities, many banks are operating to a large extent within a diverse environment. Different regulatory regimes, standards and best practices represent a source of operational risk and a real challenge to the banks' operational efficiency - highlighting the need for the industry to evolve towards further harmonization of standards and business rules at the global level. Given its track record in the area of bank collaboration and preparation of SEPA at the practitioner's level, EBA will organize a dialogue with industry experts from Japanese and U.S. bank communities and offer its lessons learned from the SEPA experience.

Few topics generate as much interest and lively debate as settlement of renminbi outside mainland China.

Financial Landscape"

"Food for Thought – Local Characters in a Global Market: Messages that Work for Everyone"

Not everyone in the world uses the Latin alphabet, particularly in Asia. But the SWIFT MT standard, and many of the bank and market infrastructure applications that process international business in payments and securities are limited to using Latin characters. As the global financial system becomes ever more closely integrated, how can the industry respond to customers' needs to use their own non-Latin languages for names, addresses and other information intended to be read by people? What are the implications if the world's financial processing systems are to accommodate this change fully? And what are the work-arounds – technical and market-practice – that we can use if the impact is simply too much to handle at once?

This multi-faceted topic will undoubtedly generate some lively debate and leave the audience with lots to further think about.

Are there collaborative ways of addressing them? What would be the real game changers in that space? A panel of experts will share and debate their views and set the scene for a new initiative to increase efficiency in the area of standards management. Come and make sure your views are heard too.
