Roundtable 1.4. The Digital Transformation of the Financial Sector: Challenges and Opportunities
7 June 2018
The impact of technology on all sectors of the economy is constantly growing. Digital technologies and their development are the main driver for financial market transformation, its enhanced competitive ability and better services. Yet, they also create new challenges for the next few years.
Financial landscape is rapidly changing. Financial organizations are busy with digital transformation of their internal processes and business models, which brings them to developing and introducing new technologies on their own, as well as to partnering with IT companies.
At the same time, digitalization requires developing and introducing platform solutions, including remote identification, fast payment, marketplace platforms for financial products and services, as well as distributed ledger based platforms that enable interaction among market participants.
This discussion will focus on market participants’ business models and key drivers of this transformation.
