Dear Clients, Partners and Friends,
Running up to SIBOS, which will gather the post-trading industry in Sydney at the end of October, we are pleased to welcome you to the autumn edition of the GSS Newsletter.
After the great feedback on our analysis of the influence of Blockchain on securities services in our previous issue, we are featuring another highly relevant tech topic. This time, we are looking into the impact of cyber-security on the financial sector and what the industry can do to further strengthen in this field.
We are happy to introduce our newly appointed Network Management Head, Zuzana Milanova, who is a high-profile expert and has substantial experience in the custody business. In our featured interview you can find out more about Zuzana’s professional background.
A little excursion with Günter Schnaitt, Head of GSS Austria, takes us to the Alps where an extraordinary rural habit colours the streets each September: the Almabtrieb, when the farm animals return home from their airy summer retreats.
For those of you attending SIBOS, we would be happy to welcome you to our stand A09 at the International Convention Centre Sydney and invite you to an authentic Italian coffee.
Julia Barbara Romhanyi
Global Head of Securities Services
