Ted Roosevelt Malloch kicks-off iGTB Oxford School

The iGTB Oxford School of Transaction Banking is to be a world-leading centre of learning and research for transaction banking

London (UK), July 14th 2016: The world’s leading transaction bankers and thought leaders now have a platform to tackle some of the most pressing and complex issues in transaction banking today: the iGTB Oxford School of Transaction Banking, set up by Ted Roosevelt Malloch, CEO of The Roosevelt Group and Senior Fellow at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, and sponsored by Intellect Global Transaction Banking (iGTB), the organisation behind the world’s first comprehensive global transaction banking product. The inaugural course, scheduled to be held July 13th-15th, is the first in a series that will place transaction banking at the centre of modern business and banking.

The School is being launched to recognise transaction banking’s increasing prominence within financial services and to bring rigour to an area of banking that has previously been overlooked.

The learning programme is open exclusively to senior transaction banking executives from around the world and will be held initially in the prestigious Rhodes House in the uniquely historic setting of Oxford before concluding at the Oxford and Cambridge Club in London. The inaugural programme will be led by Ted Roosevelt Malloch and Andrew England, renowned thought leaders in the domain.

England is an immensely experienced, pre-eminent expert on global transaction banking and has previously held the position of Managing Director, Global Head of Transaction Banking at Lloyds, Head of CEE Global Transaction Banking, UniCredit and Head of Product Management, Global Cash Management and Trade, Deutsche Bank, as well as having been Senior External Advisor on Transaction Banking with McKinsey & Co. He is currently a Director of iGTB.

Malloch, author of fifteen books including the bestseller ‘Doing Virtuous Business’ on virtuous business and other topics, has previously been a Research Professor at Yale University and held positions on the executive board of the World Economic Forum and ambassadorial level at the United Nations, as well as experience on Wall Street and with the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Senate. Malloch is also an incoming Richard von Weizsäcker Fellow at the Robert Bosch Academy in Berlin, Germany.

The comprehensive agenda of the course will centre on the theme: “Transaction Banking by Design”. Attendees will learn about and explore design frameworks for transaction banking at the three key stages of a transaction bank’s maturity: advocacy, growth and innovation; managing to performance; and conflict, disruption and stakeholder management. It will include practical insights from seasoned transaction bankers, punctuated by peer-to-peer learning exercises that will enable participants to grasp a deep understanding of how other executives have addressed common challenges.

Arun Jain, Chairman and Managing Director, Intellect Design Arena Ltd. says: “There is a global spotlight on Transaction Banking. Big business and SMEs alike are looking for more efficient services and more addictive interfaces. In such a complex and increasingly dynamic environment, the importance of collaborative learning simply cannot be overstated. I am sure that the iGTB Oxford School will move the transaction banking conversation ahead by several years, for the industry as a whole.”

Ted Roosevelt Malloch, Senior Fellow in Management Practices, Saïd Business School adds: “Transaction banking is at the heart of supporting businesses and thereby sustainable economic growth, but has previously been viewed as simpler and less worthy of scrutiny. Now is the time to consolidate the paradigms underpinning this key sector.”

Manish Maakan, CEO of iGTB, Intellect Design Arena Ltd. says: “After 400 years of banking, transaction banking is finally coming of age and taking its rightful place not only at the heart of the banking industry, but also with regards to commerce and the economic development of markets. It’s a core banking service that is rapidly growing in terms of size and complexity, so it’s crucial for companies to “get it right” and optimise their operations in light of such a changing, challenging environment. Today’s banking needs to be professionalised, and we want this event to be at the forefront of any developments by offering the highest-quality, senior-level transaction banking learning available.”
