In the next decade digital mega-trends will have an enormous impact on the financial services industries. This creates opportunities for both established actors as well as the new technology start-ups. We do not believe the future is one in which a new generation of players will wipe out the existing financial services sector. We do believe banks and other financial players will have to adapt rapidly to the new digital reality.
Customers are increasingly demanding real-time services that are much broader than what they are currently being offered. In the future financial services organizations will have to master the art of co-creation and collaboration with agile technology start-ups and offer customer experiences that are comparable with those customers are receiving from data-driven technology companies in other domains.
