Customer expectations are rising in line with advancing technology – Innovation in technology has resulted in a new set of competitors. These organisations do not want to be banks, they want to take over the direct customer relationship and most lucrative part of the financial institution’s sales value chain.



Technology & advanced analytics are evolving – advances in Big data and Machine learning are enabling new risk-management techniques to be introduced at lower cost.



New risks are emerging – new and unfamiliar risks are becoming common; for example model risk, cybersecurity risk and contagion risk.
