Head of Sibos Sven Bossu revealed in his interview with bobsguide that there would be something new to look out for at the event in Geneva, as banking executives are increasingly embracing fintech. An area called the Swiss Lounge will provide 25 fintech startups with a space and a voice to showcase their products and services to the SWIFT community. This is the first time that this has been done and Bossu highlighted that this is something that the Sibos team would like to carry on doing moving forward and especially for the next two years.
