Connecting digital islands: Joining up digital currencies and payment systems
Monday, 10 October, 13:15 – 14:00 CET
Conference Stage 3

The emergence of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) raises many questions about how they will work with existing payments systems. CBDCs are being developed, and we know that they will need to co-exist with existing infrastructures for some time. But how is this actually going to work? If CBDCs are to operate on different networks, how will customers' payments flow frictionlessly when they need to arrive in existing currencies?

Paul Baybutt, Global Product Head, Securities Services, HSBC

Tackling the root of securities settlement fails
Monday 10 October, 14:15 – 15:00 CET
Meet the Experts Stage

Securities settlement fails create both added costs and operational risks for trading counterparties. And these challenges are only intensifying under CSDR's Settlement Discipline Regime and the decision by certain markets to adopt T+1. Increased transparency on securities transactions will be essential if the industry is to reduce settlement fails moving forward. Hear first-hand from key securities players about this and a new service that will address these issue.

Mark Evans, Head of Cross-border Payments, Global Payments Solutions, HSBC

Instant + frictionless payments: A formula for customer success
Monday 10 October, 15:30-16:15 CET
Meet the Experts Stage

Being able to seamlessly move money around the world to pay for goods and services has never been more critical. The volume of cross-border payments is growing consistently, fuelled by more and more complex global supply chains, demand for seamless remittances and rapidly rising international B2C trade and e-commerce. This session will look at the benefits instant and frictionless payments bring to end customers, and what needs to be done to remove the remaining friction points.

Catherine Zhou, Group Head of Venture, Digital Innovation & Partnerships, HSBC

Spotlight on Digital Value - Conquering the metaverse: Should securities firms start buying plots of virtual land?
Tuesday 11 October, 12:00 – 12:45 CET
Conference Stage 3

Did you ever think you'd be asking, "Should I buy a piece of land in the metaverse?" Well, many traditional banks have started. Not only to buy land but to build stadiums, lounges and branches. When will the first stock exchange and asset manager open in the metaverse? Will you be one of the first investors?

Natalie Blyth, Global Head of Commercial Banking Sustainability, HSBC

Harnessing big data towards ESG compliance
Wednesday 12 October, 9:15 – 10:00 CET
Conference Stage 2

Global trade is at the epicenter of the ESG movement. Climate and other environmental risks, in combination with social and governance risk factors, are a key source of financial risk for the banking system. There are several industry initiatives to identify, measure and manage these risks. Banks are expressing a need to be able to identify, collect and report commercial and trade finance exposures that are ESG-compliant at a bank-wide level. This session invites an exchange of ideas from thought leaders and industry practitioners.

Vinay Mendonca, Chief Growth Officer, Global Trade and Receivables Finance, HSBC

The future of trade finance is starting to become clearer and stronger beyond the uncertain fog of bank experimentation, POCs and failed ventures. Who are the key players emerging and where is the industry heading? This panel will discuss three big drivers that will change how trade finance is poised for a big shift in 2023 and beyond.

Matt Brown, Group Head of Risk & Compliance Shared Services, HSBC

The hidden value of getting compliance right
Wednesday 12 October, 15:00 – 15:45 CET
Conference Stage 1

In the ever-changing world of cross-border payments, financial crime presents one of the largest systemic risks to the global economy. And when it strikes, it can have a devastating impact on businesses and communities. For financial institutions, ensuring effective financial crime compliance and excellent customer experience are a must and a potential differentiator for those that get it right. In this session, we'll explore the ways in which the industry can balance compliance requirements and customer experience to create an optimal, and safe, customer journey.

Vinay Mendonca, Chief Growth Officer, Global Trade and Receivables Finance, HSBC

Should global trade finance go decentralised?
Thursday 13 October, 11:45 – 12:30 CET
Conference Stage 1

Permissionless access. No operator. No fiat assets. Records on distributed ledgers. Risk taking distributed to users with no central trust anchor. Is this a recipe for cost-efficient financial intermediation and the future of financial inclusion? Or could it lead to increased systemic risk and heightened liquidity, cybersecurity, anti-money laundering, counter-terrorist financing, and legal uncertainties?
