CHALLENGES FACING THE FINANCIAL SERVICES SECTOR
Changing regulatory environment
New regulatory measures, including MFID, IFRS 9 and GDPR, require complex system, process and reporting changes. Many financial institutions are responding by setting aside more of their change portfolios and corresponding budgets. While regulatory changes are likely to continue, a more sustainable, flexible and cost-effective regulatory operations are required to maintain compliance.
Increased global competition, growing customer and operational requirements are pressuring costs. Gaps in operational efficiency makes your organisation more vulnerable to competition and disruption, while also decreasing internal investment potential. It is crucial to take advantage of technology advancements and implement leaner operations to address these pressures.

The opportunities from digital transformation will require you to review your channels and customer propositions. Customer expectations are changing with a high bar being set within and beyond the financial services industry. Digital platforms allow entrants into the market with less operational and technical infrastructure, making it difficult to stay competitive with legacy systems.
