The Asian Banker Transaction Banking Breakfast Dialogue, Thailand
Tuesday, 5th November 2013, Grand Hyatt, Bangkok, Thailand
The Asian Banker, the region’s premier provider of insightful research to the financial services industry, recently held a high-level dialogue with the transaction banking community in Thailand to gauge their responses to developments in the domestic industry, with key players include Thai banks’ heads of transaction banking or their senior management equivalent, senior officials from Bank of Thailand, and international experts and senior transaction bankers within major banks in ASEAN.
Key discussion points:
- International dialogue with Thai heads of transaction banking on global themes today
- Current issues affecting Thai banks and responses in other similar jurisdictions
- Key findings from The Asia Pacific FI Cash and Trade Trends and Satisfaction Report 2013
Thai banks are working on electronic payments systems, integrating their transaction banking platforms and launching them on handheld devices as well as supporting the regionalising Thai corporates. Supply chain financing has largely been kept within the country and banks are looking to expand its products across borders to better capture the expanding Thai businesses. With the regionalisation of banks and customers, Thai banks need to differentiate to compete with other FIs and non-bank players.
Going forward, Thai banks will need to juggle their infrastructure investments, ASEAN integration goals, and regulations, in the face of diminishing profit margins
