In this week’s newsletter, we discover why insurers must seek to adopt a multi-cloud approach to infrastructure, how digital tools are helping banks and registered investment advisors win new clients, and we assess the state of the payments regulatory environment. The power of technology investment to ward off recession also features and we examine the importance of accurate ESG data for reporting. Finally, we look at how and why banks should seek to monetise their extensive data assets.  

Aite-Novarica: Insurers can no longer avoid a multi-cloud environment  
The power and potential of cloud infrastructure is now undeniable for insurers. CIOs, CTOs, and heads of architecture must adapt their ecosystem design and incorporate cloud-hosted infrastructure to remain competitive.  

Javelin: The current state of the payments regulatory environment 
A healthy and efficient global payments ecosystem remains dependent on traditional banks and a robust regulatory environment. Recent events in the banking sector have meant leaders must anticipate market movements closely and adapt policies as they evolve.  

Greenwich: Digital tools helping banks attract corporate clients 
Banks that deploy a one-size-fits-all approach may often struggle to get corporate clients to adopt digital solutions. Digital onboarding and the rise of self-service can aid attracting clients.  

Aite-Novarica: RIAs have an unprecedented advantage as new technology solutions emerge  
Registered investment advisors (RIAs) are well positioned to become reliable advisors to private clients due to the availability and emergence of diverse new technology solutions. 

IDC: Does tech spending in Asia indicate a banking crisis or global recovery?  
This IDC study reveals that banks in Asia will likely weather economic headwinds, avoiding recession with continued investment in technology.   

Celent: How banks can monetise data 
Few institutions are more data-intensive than banks, but many are yet to realise the full potential of their data assets. One of the key challenges that banks face is the lack of clarity around the definition of data monetisation.  

Aite-Novarica: The significance of data in sustainable supply chain finance 
Sustainable supply chain finance relies on reliable data to measure and monitor ESG performance across supply chain activity. Establishing dedicated ESG units and working with specialist ESG data partners are two viable routes to delivering the accurate data demanded by stakeholders.
