With the increasing rate of change taking place in the SWIFT world, such as MT to MX message migrations and syntax table updates, maintaining a SWIFT infrastructure can become complex for any small and medium business. Yann Henry invites you to lunch to discover SWIFT Service Bureau from Clearstream Services IT and why many organisations have decided to outsource their SWIFT connectivity.
There is one theme on which the financial sector will agree: over the last ten years the sourcing strategies of organisations have significantly evolved in the different financial centres around the world, driven in part by the search for synergies, increasing technological complexity and business efficiencies such as straight through processing.
This is particularly the case in Luxembourg, where economic and legal initiatives led by the government are helping to promote Luxembourg as a hub for both operational and IT excellence in the global financial services industry.
One complex infrastructure for many organisations to manage is their interface with SWIFT. Our SWIFT Service Bureau and value adding services deliver solutions to make SWIFT connectivity as efficient as possible.
Clearstream Services IT provides you with access to a first-class service and much more. Our SWIFT Service Bureau solution enables you to combine state-of-the-art connectivity with an excellent service level at low cost. Customers receive all the benefits of a high investment infrastructure at a fraction of its cost and with none of the disadvantages.
This is even more the case in 2015. SWIFT is operating a major change in its communication standard with the migration from MT to MX messages. Customers currently have two options, either developing internally the necessary expertise to properly handle this migration with the underlying operational, compliance and financial risk exposure, or, transferring the burden to a major player who already has the know-how of handling such project.
We supply a highly secure and redundant infrastructure, connectivity access points in major international financial centres, highly skilled and experienced IT specialists and a strong commitment to service quality.
Customers also benefit from the advantages of our many years of expertise in operating the SWIFT infrastructure for both Clearstream and Deutsche Börse Group.
To find out more about how our SWIFT Service Bureau solution can help your business grow, we invite you to register free for our lunch event at the Hotel Melia in Luxembourg on 18 June 2014.
We look forward to seeing you there!
