Innovation is the lifeblood of financial services. Even by this industry’s standards, however, the current pace of change is dramatic. Strategies, business models, technologies… all are up for review. New markets are being created, such as for digital assets and crypto-currencies. Even financial market infrastructure is going digital. Traditional financial services firms are turning into platforms, and new players continue to emerge – many of whom have already built successful brands in other sectors such as technology.
