A defining moment for the sector
The financial services sector is at a pivotal point in its evolution. Disruption, new business models, FinTechs, payments, cryptocurrency, cyberthreats, greater collaboration and data legislation are all transforming the sector - and regulators are scrambling to keep up.
The sector has made great strides towards digital transformation, but there are still barriers to innovation.
