In the issue we address the complex financial services landscape and some of the principal transformation issues senior executives are struggling with today. The G20 meeting in Brisbane in mid-November set the broad context for economic reform and further financial services regulation. We look at some of the key items on their agenda, review the results of the ECB’s stress tests of Europe’s biggest banks, and explore the implications of IFRS9.


In addition, we explore two contrasting facets of data management in financial services.
