The financial services landscape is in transition. Traditional players are evolving into platforms. New players – some with brands well-established in other industries – are entering the marketplace. Ecosystems are coalescing around customer pain points and value propositions. Digital currencies and assets are forming shadow systems. Financial market infrastructure is going digital. And the pace of change is continuously accelerating.

Are you moving fast enough — and boldly enough — to compete in the new world? In this section of Frontiers in Finance, our authors offer insights and ideas for accelerating innovation. They share lessons from their work with fintechs; look at ways to unlock the value of data to speed transformation; and explore how traditional bricks-and-mortar sectors like real estate are catalyzing their own digital road map.
