Save Your Spot

Join us for one of four partner-hosted sessions at Sibos in London on Wednesday, 25 September located in South Gallery 12.

Blockchain-based technology has proven successful in addressing today’s banking pain points, but this technology can also enable banks to enhance interactions and transactions for their corporate customers. Take this opportunity during Sibos week to learn how new collaborative networks and consortia have come together to transform corporate supply chains, international trade, KYC and payments.

Through a series of four, one-hour sessions, R3 ecosystem participants will showcase applications they’ve built on Corda, R3’s enterprise blockchain platform. They will highlight the progress of some of the market-leading applications being developed in the corporate banking arena and demonstrate the benefits they are bringing. 

Register your place to find out how these groups have worked together to address industry level pain points - increasing access to traditional trade finance, creating a distributed marketplace for supply chain finance and solving the KYC conundrum for banks, buyers and suppliers.

There are only 25 spaces available for each session so please register your interest as soon as possible. You will receive a confirmation email including logistical details closer to the event but if you have any questions before then please contact marketing@r3.com.

The rise of digital business platforms and regulatory burdens affecting Banks and Corporates is driving the need for automated counterparty onboarding and fiduciary processes. This is true for both the KYC (Know Your Customer) and KYS (Know Your Supplier) processes, throughout business ecosystems, and is resulting in a convergence of the Compliance and Procurement functions.

Join this session to find out how the Blue Catalyst solution, developed by Capgemini and R3, and leveraging R3’s Corda technology, is designed to address both KYC and KYS challenges. There will also be a discussion with Dun & Bradstreet about the recent 'Compliance And Procurement Sentiment Report'.
