Established in 1993, the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC) is the industry’s original collaborative forum, providing a safe, effective, and reliable venue for financial institutions, technology companies and academia to explore today’s strategic business-technology issues.Our initiatives have resulted in many important new standards, concepts and products.
FSTC continues to be the financial industry’s premier member-owned consortium where members collaborate to explore technologies that address today’s business requirements. Today we run four standing committees: Enterprise Architecture, Payments, Security and Business Continuity, a number of Special Interest Groups (such as Service Oriented Architecture), and host many new important projects and workshops. We are a member of the Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council (FSSCC), where we serve on the R&D Committee. We have forged close working relationships with BITS, FS-ISAC, ABA, BAI, ECCHO, NACHA, ANSI, W3C, OMG, and OASIS to name a few.
At FSTC’s heart are the world’s leading financial institutions and the technology and providers they use. Our experts are leading technologists and business strategists in the financial services industry, and our project teams are staffed by industry recognized thought leaders who provide trusted expert direction to all of FSTC’s research.Our staff and oversight groups ensure outstanding service to FSTC’s members. As a result, our work is authoritative and relied upon by institutions, technology firms, and regulators. FSTC strives to provide each member institution with the means to do together what none can do alone: collaborate so that each shares the same deep knowledge, vision and insight that make strong competition possible. By providing the means for collaboration, FSTC strengthens its member institutions and strengthens the vitality of the financial industry.
