Need a job in payments ?

RSS feeds can be an easy way to stay on top new openings in your field. Using a simple RSS reader tool I created the following listings of Recent openings in the Payments Industry

Payment News Blidgets

I started making a blidget from my own Blog. You can also do this based on other blogs or RSS feed that is available on the web. It is easy to do with and takes about 1 day to get through the approval process.

Below you can find an example I created from Blog information that was available on the website

Here is another useful site that has created social collaboration platform for International Payments. My main focus and interest on the SWIFT sponsored site has been on the standards discussion ( ISO20022, ISO15022, XML) notes and blogs

Convergence to XML standards will lead to integrated workflow

During the last 1 year and a half I have had the opportunity to learn more about the Global Markets - Interest Rates Derivatives business while working as a consultant at Wachovia. Recently I came across an interesting article in industry XML standards. While I was very familiar with UNIFI ISO2002 XML, this article introduced me to a new standard used in the Capital Market industry FpML.
The article discussed the trends in convergence to various xml standards within the financial industry. The key to success will be a system that will be able to easily integrate pre-process (sales, risk assessment,regulatory compliance check,...) , and post-process (trading, routing and settlement) data elements within a single workflow.
