Swiss Fintechs to Watch

By Madhvi Mavadiya | 19 September 2016

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.
