Digital Transformation in Financial Services

About this white paper
Our Digital Transformation in Financial Services paper examines five themes transforming the financial services marketplace: the evolution of disruption; collaboration and investment; the shifting landscape of regulation and technology; payments and cryptocurrencies; and cybersecurity and monetizing data.

It is based on an in-depth global survey and interviews with key industry leaders across the financial services landscape, including representation from major retail banks, investment banks, FinTechs, venture capitalists, asset managers, fund managers, insurance companies, other financial institutions and regulators. The findings are supported by analysis and insight from DLA Piper’s global Financial Services sector team and secondary research sources. The white paper highlights the key critical legal, regulatory and commercial challenges and the opportunities on offer. It includes facts, figures and stories on how:

  • Financial services organizations recognize collaboration with FinTech as the route to agile solutions
  • Regulators walk the tightrope of protecting customers while allowing a culture of innovation in financial services
  • The potential of new and emerging technologies is recognized, but the blueprint for collaboration is yet to be established
  • Open banking and GDPR spark a race for better utilization - and monetization - of data in the next two years
  • Cybersecurity is still a significant worry for financial services organisations
  • Digital tokens and cryptocurrencies are rapidly gaining traction in the mainstream of the financial services sector
