Key themes for the BIIA 2019 Biennial conference are emerging and our conference committee is working on the following sessions

Technological changes are accelerating at an unprecedented pace.  Our conference theme in 2017 was ‘Embracing Digitization’ reflecting the rush to digitize data, information and knowledge.

For the BIIA 2019 Biennial Conference we chose to express the technological changes impacting our clients and our industry in form of a formula: 

“AI + Analytics + Data = The Future of Managing Risk”

AI (Artificial Intelligence) Keynote and panel discussion:  AI is playing an increasing part in extracting insights or knowledge from a deluge of digitized data and in real time.  For those who have to make accurate decisions in real time about opportunity and risk, the inherited promises would be a welcome advancement.  There a those who put the promises of AI on their banners, others dismiss them as hype.  In the opening sessions we are going to discuss the current developments and uses of AI by clients and by members of our industry.

  • Artificial Intelligence:  Reality or Hype – The Challenges for the Financial Services Industry and the Likely Consequences for Business/Credit Information
    • Keynote – Future prospects and challenges 

 

  • Impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the Business / Credit Information Industry – Panel discussion moderated by Dr. Anthony Scriffignano, Chief Data Officer Dun & Bradstreet Corporation (confirmed)
    • Panelist: Professor Dr. Gjergji Kasneci, CTO & Head of Innovation and Strategic Analysis at SCHUFA Holding AG, Germany (confirmed)
    • Panelist:  Senior Analyst from Forrester Research (confirmed)
    • Panelists:  Experts from the Credit Insurance Industry and the IT sector have been invited

 

  • The Challenges of Today: 
    • Panel discussion on today’s key developments:  From cyber security, fraud prevention, open banking, compliance to privacy.  Moderated by Neil Munroe, Deputy Managing Director BIIA
    • Panelist:  Enrico Lodi, General Manager at CRIF and President of ACCIS (confirmed)
    • Panelist:  Mohan JAYARAMAN, Regional Managing Director Asia Pacific for Decisions Analytics (DA), Business Information Services (BI) and Data at Experian
    • Panelists:  Experts from the our industry are welcome
  • Financial Inclusion driven by the need to provide access to finance for individuals, micro and small business.
    • This panel discussion is organised by the  SME Finance Forum of the International Finance Corporation and moderated by Matt Gamser, CEO of the SME Financial Forum
    • Matt Gamser and several panelists will discuss what SME Financial Inclusion means and the dilemmas it faces.
    • Of keen interest for our members will be the discussion on the challenges for credit information services plus the way forward: “Credit information is dead, long live ‘financial capability information’

 

  • Identity:  Keynote – Increasing importance of managing identity – challenges and trends –  a perspective of a compliance professional
    • TAN WEE SOON, Executive Director, Group Financial Crime & Security Services (FCSS), DBS Bank Singapore

 

  • Identity has become a major business activity driven by AML, KYC, eKYC compliance requirements.

BIIA has invited a number of its members to discuss the dynamics of their growing ‘identity’ businesses.  Much of it is b2b although the convergence of business identities and the identities of individuals is underway.  No business can function without an owner and management in particular those who have beneficial ownership or hold proxies. All of which is dependent on transparency, however compliance officers often bemoan the lack of reliable, accurate and timely information.

BIIA has invited the GLEIF Organization (Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation).  GLEIF is tasked to support the implementation and use of the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI).   The discussion will focus on current developments of the LEI and the future prospects of the LEI becoming the neutral company identifier for legal and financial transactions and if mandated by local authorities in the interest of AML/KYC compliance, would this lead to greater transparency.  

    • Phil Cotter, Managing Director Risk at Refinitiv (confirmed);
    • Dr. Anthony Scriffignano, Chief Data Officer Dun & Bradstreet Corporation (confirmed);
    • Wayne Johnson, CEO at encompass   (confirmed);
    • Stefan Wolf,  CEO at LEI Organization (confirmed)

 

  • The Future of Credit & Credit Information  –  Given the almost unprecedented pace of technological change we expect this panel discussion to be rather provocative.  We expect active participation by the audience.
    • Panel Discussion with CEOs, COOs, CIOs  moderated by Neil Munroe, Deputy Managing Director at BIIA.
    • Matt Gamser, CEO at the SME Finance Forum of the IFC (confirmed)
    • Jérôme Pezé, CEO and Founder at Tinubu Square (confirmed)
    • Cato Syversen, CEO at Creditsafe
    • Carlo Gherardi,  CEO at CRIF (invited)

Supporting organizations

BIIA is working in partnership with the IFC’s SME Finance Forum to organize a special program on Financial Inclusion:  Assisting Micro and Small Businesses with access to finance through improved information. 

This session will be of particular interest for BIIA and SME Financial Forum members.  Stay tuned!

ICISA will, as in prior BIIA conferences, be a key participant in the BIIA 2019 Biennial Conference



Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) is tasked to support the implementation and use of the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI).

The LEI is a 20-digit, alpha-numeric code based on the ISO 17442 standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Each LEI connects to key reference information describing a legal entity including its ownership structure. LEIs enable smarter, less costly and more reliable decisions about who to do business with, while bringing simplicity to onboarding and transacting. Close to 1.4 million LEIs have been issued globally as of March 2019.

The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) offers businesses a one-stop approach to identifying legal entities, which has the potential to take the complexity out of business transactions. Via the Global LEI Index, the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) makes available the largest online source of company register data providing open, standardized and high-quality legal entity reference data.

At the BIIA 2019 Biennial Conference the audience will be provided with an update on recent developments of the LEI and will discuss whether the LEI will be a route to standardized, higher quality company register data and will ultimately lead to a greater transparency.
