Sunbury, United Kingdom— January 20, 2011 — GXS™ will host a complimentary webinar for executives in the financial services industry (FSI) on February 2 at 4:00 p.m. GMT.  The online event, featuring TowerGroup’s Susan Feinberg, showcases the business challenges and technology projects facing wholesale banking executives in 2011, including the impact of regulatory initiatives, technology platform integration and improving customer service.

Event: Webinar: Top 10 Technology Initiatives for Wholesale Banking in 2011
Date: Wednesday, February 2, 2011
Time: 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. GMT
Presenters: Susan Feinberg, Senior Research Director for Wholesale Banking, TowerGroup, and Patricia Hines, Director of Financial Services Industry Marketing, GXS

For 2011, TowerGroup predicts that Wholesale Banking will be shaped by an uneven economic recovery, major regulatory changes, client demand for innovation, reputational risk arising from cybercrime and increasingly global competition. In contrast to 2010, TowerGroup expects FSI teams to place more focus on lowering the overall cost of the technology infrastructure supporting Wholesale Banking units.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this webinar:

  • The impact of Basel III, the Dodd-Frank Act (US), SEPA (EU) and other regulatory initiatives.
  • How banks are deploying payments convergence systems.
  • How electronic bank account management (eBAM) is driving investment on multibank digital identity management systems.
  • How technology teams are modernising core banking platforms to support global branch networks.
  • The impact of life-cycle management solutions on managing wholesale banking customers.
