Banking and
Capital Markets
at the Conference

Accenture will return to Sibos this year with a program focused on helping you position yourself on the winning side of change and innovation.

Our leadership will once again host private lunch panels discussing payment and trading hot topics.



Investment banks are turning to automation to cut costs and meet increasing regulatory demands. Many, however, are overlooking the key advantage to intelligent automation capital: self-learning, which constantly improves rather than degrades in value.

Join our panel of industry experts for a deep dive into the future of artificial intelligence technology within capital markets. This panel discussion will explore the critical next steps for banks—how to add true intelligence learning to their systems and bolster their competitive positions.

Tuesday, October 17

The shift is on to move to the next level of implementation while maximizing the advantages of Open Banking. At the same time, on-demand, immediate, digital services are combining with a wave of new technologies such as open APIs, cloud, instant payments, and artificial intelligence to simultaneously amplify the disruption known as Open Banking.

Join a panel of industry experts for an insightful and open discussion to explore the many business implications of Open Banking. In this lively session, panel members will address key issues such as:

  • How should banks position themselves for an Open Banking environment?

  • What are the priority opportunities to create value?

  • What revenues are at stake, and what new revenues can be created?

Cyber-attacks continue to evolve and are becoming more frequent and widespread. Attackers are improving their tactics and techniques faster than security teams can keep up and their methods grow more sophisticated each year.

Join Chris Thompson, Accenture Global Financial Services Cyber Risk & Resilience Lead, as he moderates this Sibos session on the technological trends that define the threat and risk associated with cyber security and their implications for financial services.

Monday, October 16
9:30am – 10:30am

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not new to the financial industry, but it is developing fast; it is estimated that AI will surpass human intelligence by 2019! Experts say AI can take routine, repetitive processes and make them more efficient and effective, removing the risk of manual handling and reducing costs. Are you prepared? Given the industry is not quite ready for blockchain, can we cope with AI technology running our middle and back office systems in a not so distant future?

Join Diane Nolan, Accenture Managing Director in Capital Markets, who will be moderating this Sibos session. The discussion will focus on AI-assisted exception handling, robo-advisor, machine learning and cognitive computing.

Monday, October 16
3:30pm – 4:30pm
MTCC, Conference Room 3


In the digital age, customers have increasingly high expectations of the products and services they use. Being able to quickly and seamlessly carry out transactions through mobile devices has rapidly become a basic requirement for financial services. But consumers will want much more in the future with demands being driven by their experience of more customer-focused service providers. Against a backdrop of ever-growing choice for consumers, organizations will need to shift from a product-led mindset to a customer-led one.

While digital developments are driving disruption across the market, consumers also still value human interaction. How do you strike the right balance between technology and the ‘personal touch’?

Join Kendra Thompson, Accenture Global Wealth Management Lead, as she moderates this Sibos session to explore how financial services firms can foster a greater culture of innovation and a passion among their staff to ensure the right products and services are delivered the way customers want them.

Wednesday, October 18
9:30am – 10:30am
