The class of 2019 delivered its final projects on four main themes – building collaboration in GTB, current trade dynamics, the future of correspondent banking, and the role of humans in transaction banking during the BAFT Global Annual Meeting in San Diego.
In now its fourth year, the batch of 2019 Future Leaders successfully completed a five-month program which kicked off last January at BAFT’s Annual meeting in London. This year’s class of 32 individuals from 14 countries and a variety of disciplines within transaction banking, tackled some of our industry’s most relevant issues we face today. Each of the participants engaged in a [virtual] group project with a final report presented to a room-full of 400+ transaction banking senior executives and industry experts during the BAFT Global Annual Meeting – the Americas in San Diego, CA this May.
The mission of the BAFT Future Leaders Program is to engage future leaders in solving common industry challenges. Program objectives include:
- Recognizing rising talent in the transaction banking industry
- Forming guidance on industry issues from the perspective of future leaders
- Building a network of young leaders that will lead the next generation
- Providing future leaders exposure to current transaction banking industry leaders
- Creating a pipeline of talent that will contribute to industry issues through BAFT
With the support of the BAFT Board of Directors, program sponsors and mentors, the class of 2019 delivered its final projects on four main themes – building collaboration in GTB, current trade dynamics, the future of correspondent banking, and the role of humans in transaction banking.
