Risk & Insurance

Banking, insurance, and asset management: finance is central to climate and technology challenges

The digital transformation of industry is in full swing and jobs in the insurance and finance industries are changing fast. Information systems are becoming agile while new technologies are driving disintermediation and accelerating time to market, all against a backdrop of dramatic changes in both regulations and consumer expectations.

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, and blockchain are shaking up the value chain in these industries

New technologies are automating simple transactions while the use of data is revamping the customer experience. Jobs are changing and machines are increasingly taking over simple tasks so people can focus on the most complex challenges. The spread of cloud technology is bringing with it the computing power that these new solutions demand. 

Insurance and finance are moving to fully digital execution and distribution and seeing the emergence of new players 

Start-ups are making the most of their edge on technology, with systems that are not weighed down by legacy assets. Fintech and neo-insurers are offering a seamless customer experience, with no brick-and-mortar locations.  The growth of these structures and transactions is driving regulators to tighten rules to protect consumer investments and prevent bankruptcies. Compliance has become a major challenge and a key investment for all financial players.  

Towards green finance: the environmental transition is central to financial services strategy

Decarbonising asset portfolios and protecting biodiversity are key priorities. The financial industry is committed to reducing the carbon footprint of its activities, particularly its digital operations. 

Insurers are on the front line of the fight against climate change and face an increase in natural disasters. Analysis of non-financial factors is also increasingly important, although the approaches still face methodological challenges. ESG (environmental, social, and governance) policies are also promoting more inclusive, socially conscious finance.
