SWIFT Appoints David Lefferts as Managing Director, Market Initiatives for the Americas

SWIFT announced the appointment of David Lefferts as Managing Director, Market Initiatives for the Americas. Lefferts becomes a member of SWIFT’s Americas Management Team and reports to Chris Church, Chief Executive, Americas and Global Head of Securities. Lefferts joins SWIFT with more than 20 years of experience in the financial services technology industry. Most recently, he was a member of the management team at Markit, where he held product development, cross-product strategy, and senior business development roles over his eight year tenure. Prior to joining Markit, Lefferts was Vice President for Fixed Income Strategy at FINRA where he was responsible for developing its fixed income strategy as well as for running its TRACE reporting service for bonds.

SWIFT Enhances Sanctions Testing Service with New Performance Measurement Capabilities

Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication announced the addition of Peer Assessment to its Sanctions Testing service. SWIFT's Sanctions Testing helps financial institutions optimise the performance of their transaction and customer screening systems by analysing whether their systems are operating correctly and are able to detect illicit transactions or sanctioned customers. SWIFT's Peer Assessment service has been developed together with Sanctions Testing customers as part of SWIFT's community-driven approach to providing financial crime compliance services. This optional service enhances SWIFT's Sanctions Testing offering by enabling financial institutions to compare the performance of their sanctions filters against those of other participating institutions. SWIFT's Peer Assessment service uses a performance baseline of aggregated data from other Sanctions Testing users with similar business characteristics. The baseline will be extended and evolve over time as banks join the service, and the community-driven initiative broadens the scope of performance assessment and operational practices.
