I am delighted to open Sibos 2016 and welcome you all warmly to Geneva. Sibos is the annual gathering for financial market service providers. This sector, which is responsible for nothing less than the backbone of the financial system, is currently experiencing a surge of innovation. It is therefore a great honour for Switzerland to be hosting this important conference at this time of transformational change.
