Sibos announces opening speaker

Thomas Jordan, chair of the Swiss National Bank (SNB), is set to give the opening address at Sibos 2016 in Geneva.

Jordan will open the conference at the Palexpo in Geneva on 26 September, addressing the state of the industry and setting the tone for the week’s events.

He has been with SNB, the central bank of Switzerland, since 1997, when he joined as an economic advisor. In 2002, he became head of research and by 2004 he was head of financial markets. He was appointed to the governing board in 2007 and has been chair since 2012.

Sven Bossu, head of Sibos, said: “[Jordan] is well placed to talk about the country’s financial evolution, but also that of the global industry, drawing on his prominent role at international institutions. We welcome Jordan to the Sibos agenda and look forward to his industry insights.”

Jordan is also a member of the board of directors of the Bank for International Settlements and on the Steering Committee of the Financial Stability Board. He is the Governor of the International Monetary Fund for Switzerland, and Chair of the G10 Central Bank Counterfeit Deterrence Group.
