Anthony Malakian, US editor of Waters, and James Rundle, news editor of Waters, record a weekly podcast touching on the biggest stories in financial technology.
On the podcast, James pretends like he actually did some work during a trip to Toronto this week, by sharing some excerpts from his interviews at the annual Sibos conference. First up, Alan Marquand, director of strategy at CLS, tells James about the risk-mitigation utility’s move into blockchain early next year. Next, James speaks with Paula da Silva, head of transaction services at SEB, about balancing innovation with the need to keep crucial business units running. Finally, William Carter of the Center for Strategic International Studies tells the audience at Sibos about one particularly unfortunate bank CEO’s encounter with Russian intelligence.
3:50 Why CLS is running a technology play with blockchain.
5:50 Partnerships and business cases, from da Silva.
8:20 Carter talks about how firms can’t rely on the government to protect them.
You can find all of James’ articles from Sibos—including exclusive stories covering blockchain, AI, cybersecurity and robotics—here.
As is the case with everything we do, we'd love to get some feedback from our listeners. Feel free to reach out to Anthony or James via Twitter or email.
