Innovating for a digital world

In the past few months we have seen that one thing is for sure and that is change. This is evident in the ever changing regulatory and political environment and how financial services sector companies need to adapt their systems and processes to keep up to date with these changes. There is also the constant concern of job losses or change due to technological innovation.

This month’s Frontiers in Finances takes a deeper look into the alignment of technology and government objectives and how financial institutions can bridge the gap between regulation and technology.

 

Featured articles

  • The development of regulatory sandbox programs by financial institutions (financial technology / fintech)
  • A closer look into the regulatory automation ecosystem (regtech) 
  • How to navigate the future when it comes to implementing technology and innovation in the workplace and their impact on jobs
  • The implementation by banks of digital technology to create better customer service
  • The investment in insurtech by the insurance industry

 

The main topic evident in all these articles is that we are moving to a more technologically advanced business environment to ensure better efficiencies in business processes and client service.  

This of course is a big contributor to uncertainty for business owners specifically the integration of systems with regulatory changes and ensuring no gaps exits.

The possibility of job losses or job replacements also concerns many governments and trade unions. On the other end it also creates a good opportunity as regulatory institutions, governments and companies are increasingly made aware of the efficiencies that technological advanced processes create. In the insurance industry this has led to disruption due to new start-ups offering innovative ways to think about insurance and traditional companies wanting to invest with technology companies for increased customer value.

This month’s articles will definitely shine some light and provide guidance on how to deal with these changes both internationally and locally.
