Deutsche Bank today announced that the early participation of corporate-facing staff members in SWIFT certification programs further drives the Bank's SWIFT for Corporates expertise.
In addition, Deutsche Bank was among the first banks to be certified under the SWIFT Bank Readiness Program, an initiative created by SWIFT and its Corporate Advisory Group to provide corporates with reliable information on banks' SWIFT capabilities for corporations.
A growing number of Deutsche Bank's employees in Global Transaction Banking, IT and Operations are being trained and certified between June and October 2011 by SWIFT as "SWIFT for Corporate Specialists" via the "SWIFT for Corporate Certification Program". This intensive 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. SWIFT-certified specialists have received the training to help corporate clients get even more value out of using SWIFT.
Michael Spiegel, Head of Trade Finance and Cash Management Corporates, Global Transaction Banking, Deutsche Bank, said, "Our participation in these newly-introduced SWIFT programs demonstrates Deutsche Bank's commitment to corporate SWIFT access, increasing the Bank's visibility in this space. These training programs provide external validation of the expertise of our well-trained staff while helping us to offer our clients the highest level of quality service."
David Watson, Head of Client Access, Global Transaction Banking, Deutsche Bank, said, "We worked closely with SWIFT to tailor the training and certification curriculum to meet the needs of a broad spectrum of candidates from Deutsche Bank's IT, operations, sales and implementation teams. This customized approach allowed individuals to become more knowledgeable on SWIFT-related topics that were most important to them and their clients."
