Financial Services

From Finance to FinTech

With continuing advancements and disruptions in the financial services sector, it’s nearly impossible to discuss finance without also bringing up technology. The combination of these two areas—financial technology or FinTech—has deeply affected multiple financial industries:

  • Banking
  • Insurance
  • Investment services

Whether you belong to a regional bank or a national or global bank, your awareness and response to banking trends is paramount to remaining viable. Regulatory requirements are a continual concern. As well, consumer expectations are at an all-time high, and focusing on the customer experience is a necessity, not just nice thing to do.

Revenue generation is a critical concern in insurance. Thus, keeping abreast of the market enables you to be aware of opportunities for growth, such as expansion into cyber insurance to cushion the impact of data breaches and the like. But that takes understanding the intricacies of cyber threats, which offers its own set of challenges.


Digital Disruption in Finance

Cyber security and digital disruption are also factors in investment services. With many organizations lagging behind the innovation curve with outdated technology platforms, new competitors are finding easy entry into an industry that was once laden with barriers. The same can be said for other, smaller industries in financial services as well.
