Deutsche Bank has launched a series of initiatives to provide corporate customers with streamlined solutions for enhanced SWIFT connectivity. Clients benefit from greater transparency via Deutsche Bank’s SWIFT capabilities and improved support with system and process integration, which can help to facilitate the implementation of corporate SWIFT connectivity.
Additionally, to further underscore Deutsche Bank’s SWIFT for Corporates expertise, its corporate-facing staff members were participants in SWIFT certification programmes. Approximately 75 Deutsche Bank employees in global transaction banking (GTB), IT and operations are being trained and certified between June and October 2011 by SWIFT as ‘SWIFT for Corporate Specialists’. The training covers SWIFT messaging services and standards for corporates, the SWIFT for Corporates offering, SWIFT corporate access models, ISO 20022 messaging as well as cash and treasury management messages.
Michael Spiegel, head of trade finance and cash management corporates, GTB, Deutsche Bank, said: “Deutsche Bank remains committed to enhancing its corporate access to SWIFT for the benefit of our corporate clients. We continue to train our employees through SWIFT Certification Programmes so that we are able to offer the highest level of client service.”
