Key trends that are shaping banking and financial services landscape

  • DIGITAL in all aspects of business - Data and analytics leveraged for better decision making, implementing new age technologies – RPA, AI/ML, platform models, payments, talent, cloud, API/fintech, etc
  • Pressure on revenue and market share – Inability to deploy capital on account of consumption and investment slump, lesser effectiveness of traditional channels and entry of new age players, digitally enabled customer demanding instant gratification and personalised services
  • Cost pressure - Increasing Cost to Income ratio, inefficiencies in processes and limited automation/ technology enablement and changes in operating models.
  • Global captive centers are increasingly focusing on transformation and managed services.
  • Stringent and evolving regulatory environment - Compliance requirements aligned to global standards e.g. BASEL, IFRS; increase in FDI limit in insurance, bank licences to large corporates and NBFCs
  • Ballooning risk – Liquidity crunch, NPAs and restructured assets, revival of stressed entities, higher claims in life and general insurance industry, need for higher capital infusion, cyber security, financial crime, etc.
