The best and brightest in the world of finance are getting together from 22nd – 25th October at Sydney’s International Convention Centre for Sibos 2018. It’s pretty exciting, as here they network, collaborate and dream up answers to the most pressing problems facing the industry today.
This year’s theme is “Enabling the Digital Economy”, looking at how digital tech like big data, AI and the cloud are changing how financial professionals work.
#1: Meet the SWIFT gpi Industry Challenge Winners
We’ve been working on a major project with the team at SWIFT on a SWIFT gpi proof-of-value (PoV). This partnership came about when we won the SWIFT gpi Industry Challenge back in 2017, which asked firms to come up with ideas for the biggest challenges facing cross-border payments right now. Our proposal was designed to make it easier for corporates to enjoy visibility over in-flight cross-border payments. The grand unveiling will be at Sibos 2018, so you won’t want to miss out!
#2: Meet the stars of GPI Friday
Have your autograph books ready and mobile phones on standby for #StarSelfies – You can meet the stars behind the world famous “GPI Friday” video series at Sibos 2018.
The series is fronted by James Higgins, Product Director at AccessPay, with Product Manager Andy Howarth making the duo. Watch the videos, as they have used them to talk about the hottest topic in payments right now. Come along to stand DZ03 and pick their brains!

There’s so much going on at Sibos 2018 that you’ll want to get involved with. There’ll be insightful speeches from experts at the likes of Accenture and Google Cloud that will transform the way you do business. Big hitters from across the world’s financial community will be there as well, giving you plenty of chances to network and form relationships which could be invaluable to your organisations in 2019.
James, Andy and co. from AccessPay have big plans for our stand at Sibos’ 2018 Discover Zone, which will be held on Tuesday 23rd October from 4pm to 5pm. Follow us on Twitter to find out what we’ve got in store!

James is going to use his time on the Discovery Zone stage to explain how you can help customers achieve visibility and control over their payments and cash position, through just a single cloud platform. He’ll also take part in the interactive gpi Invest in the Best session looking at how to opportunities and efficiencies for banks, corporates and fintechs in cross-border payments which you won’t want to miss out on!
#4: Browse the fintech marketplace
You can also check us out at the at Sibos’ Discover Zone fintech marketplace. The marketplace, where fintechs reveal new innovations, was a big hit when it was first held last year. As one of the cutting-edge fintechs displaying, we’ll reveal more of the kinds of innovations which saw us named the UK’s fastest growing fintech outside of London in last year’s Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 list.
Get an edge by seeing what fintechs and banks are working on together here. Remember that things like open banking and PSD2 are changing how businesses handle cash. Open banking, for instance, allows third parties to build apps and services around a financial institution. This is giving banks more reason than ever to work with fintechs (91% said they want to do this in a recent poll), as doing so can help them provide a better offerings to customers, so there’s sure to be some amazing things to see from them.
#5: Bring value to your customers
A trip to see AccessPay at Sibos 2018 could ultimately help you create value for customers. This is because we bring corporates and banks closer together with a platform that connects disparate banking and financial services products. With our help, you can put clients in control of their data, automate tasks like daily cash position forecasting and risk reporting, and ultimately remove the risk as well as the inefficiency that comes with working across disparate systems and portals.
