The Financial Services industry is rapidly changing. New technologies have created an environment of opportunity for innovative and strategic thinkers. More than ever, traditional financial services providers are being threatened by digitisation and by Fintech companies disrupting business models and processes.
Financial institutions so long the pillars of the industry are facing the daunting prospect of being disintermediated and becoming less relevant. There is an industry wide need to change, collaborate and embrace inclusion.
This is a time of great opportunity for visionary companies with an eye for change.
