Working environment

Working environment

As a domain expert you work within the Commercial Banking Transaction Banking domain but with a bank-wide scope covering payments, securities and markets. External developments like the development of a (potential) digital Euro, implementation of the new SWIFT strategy, the industry migration towards ISO20022, the EU’s Digital Finance Strategy and consolidation of Target2 and Target2Securities (followed by the Eurosystem Collateral Management System) are examples of the topics covered by MI. These topics are addressed internally within stakeholder circles and externally via e.g. participation in various interbank committees. By leveraging an Outside In - Inside Out approach the Bank’s positions are safeguarded efficiently.

Due to the implementation of the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) continuity of services from our FMI connections must be assured in a resolution scenario to comply. Therefore the services delivered by those FMIs must be assessed in order to contribute towards a strategy ensuring continuity of services for our customers. MI will support the business lines to develop operational plans maintaining access to FMIs. This entails creation of centralised insight of FMI activity including liquidity usage, communication plans, FMI strategy and quantitative reporting to the external Single Resolution Board (SRB).
