Sibos 2018

Societe Generale’s collective insight into Sibos 2018

Today, no article on financial services is complete without certain key words: big data, blockchain, artificial intelligence, machine learning, open application programming interfaces and cyber security. These words and phrases, which barely existed a decade ago, are now deeply embedded in society and show the importance of technological change in this industry.

This year’s Sibos theme, “Enabling the digital economy”, embraces this change and resonates with the ethos espoused by experts from within Societe Generale’s Global Transaction Banking and Securities Services divisions, and elsewhere across the bank. They have employed technology to create operational efficiencies, augment the client experience and initiate new offers. Every day is a new opportunity for Societe Generale to take up challenges on behalf of their clients and partners and make a positive contribution to building the world of tomorrow.

These projects are beginning to mature as society moves further into what is rightly considered the fourth industrial revolution. An integral feature of this new era is an evolving regulatory framework. Banks must be more transparent, efficient and effective than ever before. This new environment demands a combination of expertise and skills on the part of banks and their clients.
