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.

SWIFT Announces Executive Appointments, Effective from February 1, 2015

SWIFT announced the appointment of Craig Young as Chief Technology Officer and Marcel Bronmans as Chief Operations Officer. Both Young and Bronmans will sit on SWIFT's Executive Committee and report directly to CEO Gottfried Leibbrandt. Young, who will take up his position on February 1, joins SWIFT from Verizon Communications in New Jersey. Young spent over 20 years at Verizon, rising to his most recent position as Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer in 2013. Bronmans, who joined SWIFT in 1985, takes up his new role as Chief Operations Officer on February 1. Most recently SWIFT's Chief Risk Officer, he has previously served as SWIFT's Head of Human Resources, Head of Lean Programme, Director of Technology Operations, and in a variety of management positions in the IT and Operations area.

SWIFT Appoints Peter De Koninck as Chief Auditor

SWIFT announced the appointment of Peter De Koninck as Chief Auditor. De Koninck's confirmation as Chief Auditor follows an internal and external search led by Alan Goldstein, the Head of SWIFT's Audit and Finance Committee. De Koninck's appointment was confirmed at SWIFT's Board Meeting on 10 December 2014. The Chief Auditor has a dual reporting line, with a direct solid functional reporting line to the Chair of the Audit and Finance Committee and a direct administrative reporting line to the CEO. De Koninck was appointed Acting Chief Auditor in April 2014, when SWIFT's previous Chief Auditor, Rich O'Brien retired.
