Since BIS was “born”- transaction banking highlights


Following our 12yo anniversary and as we started a new year to add to our 'age', there are some milestones that we all recall, in the area of transaction banking, globally speaking and important at company level. Here is a list of events that rolled on since BIS was born:
• The euro and the ECB's TARGET are introduced
• EBA launches EURO1
• EBA looks to develop STEP1 (Straight-Through Euro Payment System) an
interim system for processing cross-border retail payments in euro
Y2K is a significant challen financial institutions because of
many automated applications with date fields
• Analysts debate if expenses for the Y2K challenge were worth to be done
• EBA approves the blueprint for STEP2
• European states adopt the EC's regulation on cross-border payments
• Euro notes and coins replace national currencies in 12 member states
• EPC is created
• EBA Clearing develops STEP2
• The EPC approves the Pan-European Automated Clearing House resolution
(PE-ACH) which sees STEP2 become Europe's first PE-ACH
• The first bulk payment file is exchanged with the low value euro
payments system STEP2 which is declared to meet all of the ECB's
core principles of retail payment systems
• The EPC commits to building SEPA
• Launching the modern Electronic Payments System in Romania
• EBA Clearing launches SEPA Credit Transfers on STEP2
• SWIFT shareholders approve SCORE (Standardised Corporate Environment)
• The Payment Services Directive (PSD) is adopted by the European Parliament
• Banks migrate to TARGET2 for high value payments
• SEPA Credit Transfers go live
• SEPA Direct Debit goes live
• The PSD is also implemented into national legislation in member states
• EC sets SEPA migration deadlines

Three years experience in exhibiting at Sibos

After having a ten year continuous presence as simple participants at Sibos (minus the one which was last minute cancelled), time has come for us to finally step forward and place ourselves one level higher.
Thus for the last three years in a row we've joined this exclusive event as exhibitors, focusing more on value and quality, rather than trying to compete with this industry's giants. And we think it worked, judging by the return upon investment we've seen.
Three years bringing us new partners, new customers, new valuable contacts, opening new doors and opportunities and last, but not least, finding ourselves a well deserved spot in this financial community.

Here is a short movie showing key points of our presence there:
