In this week’s newsletter, we learn why financial institutions need to start thinking like technology companies, delve into the current events hampering trading volumes, and look at the growth of point solutions in insurance. Infrastructure options for buy-side and sell-side firms are examined, and we look at trends for the year ahead across banking and capital markets. Digital adoption platforms for financial institutions are also assessed.  

McKinsey & Co: Financial institutions need to work like tech companies 
This report reveals why banks need to invest in their core technology and take advantage of data capabilities in order to thrive in the digital age; banks operating by the old playbook will not survive.  

Greenwich Associates: The top infrastructure options for digital asset services 
Demand is rising for technological and operational infrastructure to support trading and investing following the increase in institutional adoption of digital assets. This report examines the available options for buy-side and sell-side firms.  

Aite-Novarica: The top digital adoption solutions for financial institutions 
Digital transformation initiatives can often lead to poor digital experiences for employees, intermediaries, and customers when adoption is not prioritised. Digital adoption platforms offer a route to improving the experience of end users. 

IDC: Thinking smart for banking in 2023  
With banks today working to overcome immediate challenges in the markets, those that can leverage technology to help map out strategic investments will be best prepared to remain resilient and profitable.  

Greenwich Associates: Turbulent growth in trade finance 
Trade volumes have recovered rapidly since their collapse in 2020; climbing as pandemic-related supply chain disruptions subside. Growth is now being impacted by soaring inflation and the war in Ukraine.  

Aite-Novarica: The growth of point solutions in insurance  
Point solutions have always been part of an insurer’s toolkit, but an increasing ecosystem of options means a more considered approach is needed, with projects based on value and need. Ecosystem integration hubs should also be considered.  

IDC: Capital markets predictions for 2023 and beyond 
In the coming years, a mix of external drivers will likely impact the competitive basis of established capital markets firms. Those who map technological investment and human talent with the market opportunity will come out on top.
