Accelerating Digital Innovation in Financial Services

Innovation is disrupting almost every link in the financial services value chain: from the emergence of automated investment services in wealth management, to the advent of new digitally-enabled business models such as crowdfunding, and increasingly intelligent regulatory software.

A rapidly expanding universe of FinTech start-ups in these and other areas has attracted growing investment over the past few years, with global FinTech investment reaching a record high of $46.7bn in 2015.1 And while overall FinTech investment dipped to $24.7bn in 2016, corporate venture capital activity was actually up, as banks, asset managers and others sought to on-board innovation being spearheaded by FinTechs.

This disruption poses a very real threat to the incumbents’ status quo, but prescient banks and asset managers are working out how to fast-track their own innovation and best institutionalise emerging technologies to seize competitive advantage.

‘Hyperfinance’ is a flagship research programme from Simmons & Simmons. The programme, undertaken in partnership with Longitude Research, investigates how large banks and asset managers are accelerating their digital innovation.

The findings explain the challenges financial institutions and asset managers are experiencing as they seek to accelerate their innovation, and they also show where improvements can be made. Most importantly, the research tells us how the industry’s leaders are adapting their innovation strategies to reach hyperspeed.
