Banking on Innovation
in the Financial Sector

The finance industry is facing a constant wave of disruption, and new market forces are consistently pushing the boundaries of technology innovation. Many traditional financial institutes are frequently finding themselves playing catch-up, while others are forging ahead. Emerging technologies are also playing an increasingly prominent role in shaping innovation in the financial sector.

Key Challenges

How to avoid disruption from Fintech Startups

Prominence of cryptocurrencies and cyber threats

Growing consumer distrust of traditional institutions

Compliance with increasing 
regulatory restriction

What The Experts Say...

"Banks and other banking and investment services organizations clearly recognize that the status quo is not sustainable, and they must disrupt themselves before it is done to them."

"The challenges of low rates and disruptive technology call for dramatic improvements in efficiency... Banks will need to transform their operating models and harness technology."

"The macro-economic environment, competitive forces, regulatory and technological change continue to put pressure on traditional business models across the financial industry."

Surviving Disruption in the
Financial Industry

Innovation in the financial sector is growing exponentially across the globe. Traditional banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions are progressively adopting emerging technologies that were once the domain of fintech firms. The need to become more customer centric and tap into new capital markets is steadily becoming the predominant force within innovation in the financial sector. For example, to deliver the best possible customer experience, financial companies are increasingly investing in mobile banking innovation, as well as exploring new avenues for leveraging big data and machine learning to improve online transactions. By using continuous improvement and idea crowdsourcing platforms, financial firms can discover powerful ways to improve their business models and ensure the needs of customers are consistently met.
