• Summary

  • The New Face of Finance, Where Finance Finds Its Future. Future of Finance has one overriding goal. It is to host meetings (at the moment virtual meetings) that bring together long established members of the financial services industry (banks, brokers, asset managers, insurers, financial market infrastructures) with entrepreneurs (challenger banks, technology companies and FinTechs) and market authorities (central banks, regulators and policymakers) to explore how the financial services industry can grow faster by being more open, more innovative and more trustworthy.

  • For Regulators Covid-19 is Just a Rehearsal for Resilience

    Aug 25 2021
    Covid-19 put the operational flexibility of the financial services industry to the ultimate test: could the business continue when nobody was in the office? The answer so far is an encouraging one, but the global pandemic also coincided with a consultation by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and the Bank of England on new measures to further enhance the operational resilience of the financial services industry. Dominic Hobson asked Chris Freeman, a former head of operations at Aviva Investors, Nomura Asset Management and Royal London now consulting on operational issues, what the biggest operational risks now are.

  • Blockchain hits warp speed with "enterprise" version

    Aug 25 2021
    As Blockchain makes its way out of the Trough of Disillusionment up the Slope of Enlightenment (© Gartner Hype Cycle) cynics forget it offered a valuable innovation: networks in which every participant sees exactly what every other participant sees. In any market where value is exchanged, everything that happens post-trade aims to reach that same point, by a laborious process of repeated reconciliation to identify errors followed by exception processing to correct them. Now "enterprise" blockchain is promising to fix those broken information exchanges. Dominic Hobson asked Yves Guillaume Messy, a Blockchain and venture capital mentor, to tell us more about it.

  • Effective RegTech is about data not technology

    Aug 25 2021
    It is not surprising that RegTech attracted so much money and so many entrepreneurs as the Fintech start-up boom took off from 2012. Banks, asset managers and insurers were hit by successive waves of regulation in the long aftermath of the great financial crisis of 2007-08, and automation of transaction monitoring and reporting, KYC, AML, CFT and sanctions screening checks, data protection, mis-selling risk, cyber-security and even operational resilience was an easy sell. A future in which regulators were just another node on a blockchain network which hosted everything they needed to know seems more distant today than it did in 2017-18, and the RegTech sector is now consolidating. But as Rupert Brown, CTO at regulatory advisers Evidology tells Dominic Hobson, the hard work of mapping and then standardising regulatory events and data flows is now beginning.
