Toronto, Canada, July 6, 2015 – Jacob Katsman, CEO of GlobalTrade Corporation will present at Sibos during the Corporate Forum taking place in Singapore. "Shaping the Future of Treasury and Trade" is the theme of this year's 2-day Corporate Forum of October 14th and 15th. Jacob will address the audience during the session entitled "Bank Readiness in Trade Finance: the voice of the Corporate community" that is scheduled on Thursday October 15th from 14:00 till 15:15. The session will be used to debate the need for banks to increase readiness with SWIFT trade standards including the MT 798 messages, SWIFT’s multi-banking transaction banking standards.

  • Business case behind adoption on MT 798 messages
  • Why more trade banks need to be bolder in embracing innovation
  • What corporates are expecting from their trade banks
  • SWIFT connectivity for trade delivered through SaaS solutions

Many corporates are expanding their use of SWIFT beyond liquidity management and expect banks to be ready on SWIFT’s trade standards such as the MT 798 for documentary trade and the ISO 20022 for open account financing. Major corporations will be sharing their views and seek to align views and ambition with their trade bankers.
