Innovation in Financial Services
The Financial Services landscape is fundamentally changing. Progressive organisations are needing to shift to accommodate the opportunities and challenges created by new technologies and evolving customer needs. Technology has become and will remain an integral part of Financial Services delivery, and financial institutions are increasingly becoming technology firms.
Financial Services is currently experiencing a period of great momentum toward modernisation; there has been no other time quite like this in the sector. The industry is at the confluence of major technology advances, ever increasing customer expectations, stiff competition and massively complex regulatory precedence.
Developing strong partnerships with the supply chain is a positive step that will open opportunities for greater growth and transformation in the future. There are significant opportunities for Financial Services organisations to embrace emerging technology in the drive towards reducing operational costs and improving efficiency.

Legal services are exceptionally vulnerable to the rise of artificial intelligence and the rapid development of fintech. Although some of the larger UK firms are embracing AI, major disruption to the market is threatened by US legal giants, the big 4 accountants and tech startups.
Our latest Market Intelligence examines the crucial challenges facing the legal sector including the shortfall in recruitment which is likely to have a significant impact in the medium term. Download Market Intelligence and begin reading today.
