What does the future hold for banks – Evolution or extinction?

Read more

Just a decade or two ago, the world’s technology giants were startups in the proverbial garages of California, or any number of other hotbeds of innovation. Yet by now, they have disrupted most spheres of the real economy: commerce, transport, advertising, news, media…

On the other hand, we’ve been hearing for many decades of the impending demise of banks due to a tectonic shift in technology. Yet those same banks have by and large managed to evolve by integrating those obviously not-so-deadly killer apps.

If you ask a banker off the record, you might hear of fears of the commoditization of the banking business, becoming an infrastructure underneath nimble, real-time applications where all the fun – and profit – happens. And (now on the record) how this will drive large banks towards becoming open platforms…

Open platforms being a model technology giants have already embraced to their benefit at very large scale, giving them a big head start… while banks benefited from having exclusive access to client’s transactional data, not just histories of clicks – until regulators remove even that advantage from them!
So amongst all of these trends, what will survival of the fittest look like?

AML and assurance – Can RegTech define a better path?

Read more

The cost of compliance continues to climb, yet money laundering and terrorist financing operations continue unabated. Banks face a two-fold challenge: adapting to evolving regulatory requirements while applying yesterday’s technology to the AML landscape of today and tomorrow.

Clearly something has to give – but what? Can RegTech transform AML in the same way FinTech has reshaped payments, insurance and investment management? Can technology make processes and controls more accurate and effective? As a non-competitive area, could collaboration help provide innovative solutions and improve results? If third-party service providers offer independent assurance that institutional controls are working, will regulators accept the results?
