A New Financial Revolution Has Begun
The first one started in the late 1600s, when England adopted a set of financing techniques that had been developed in the Netherlands. These innovations, which included the advent of bonds, stocks and checks, came to embody a financial revolution that paved the way for England’s global ascendancy over the next 100 years.
Today, thanks to the exponential rate of technological change, macroeconomic forces and new realities ushered in by the Great Financial Crisis, a new financial revolution is underway. In its wake, every aspect of financial services — asset management, commercial banking, investment banking, wealth management and trading — is being questioned, reinvented or challenged.
We want to arm you with insights for not just surviving but thriving in the new era. Through our regular newsletters, blogs and web content, we will help you to make sense of the innovations reshaping the financial landscape and provide some actionable insights to move your firm and your career forward. Join us today, because what we are witnessing isn’t some kind of garden-variety industry disruption. It’s a revolution.
