Driven by a powerful blend of innovative startups and major technology players, the global FinTech industry is growing apace, using technology innovation to capture market share from incumbents in many areas of financial services. While the FinTech entrants’ greatest impacts to date have been at the retail end of the market, the opportunity for collaboration in capital markets is real and growing; this is great timing given the challenges faced mean that innovation has become mandatory.
In this global report that EY has produced, in conjunction with Innovate Finance, EY shines a light on the investment banking industry, examining why and how capital markets firms across the globe can and should collaborate with FinTech organizations to drive their own evolution in the years to come, and to secure their future role and position in the fast-evolving financial services ecosystem.
The analysis and recommendations expressed in this report were produced by EY, and informed and shaped by more than 40 stakeholder interviews conducted with investment banks and FinTech firms (including Suade) across the globe. We would like to express our sincere thanks to all the individuals and organizations, who contributed their valuable time and insights to help make the production of this report possible. We hope this report will be used by capital markets players and FinTech companies to help drive innovation and collaboration to shape a brighter future. We also hope it will provide a useful source of insight and analysis to other stakeholders across the FinTech ecosystem, including policy-makers and regulators.
