The adoption of emerging technologies across the global financial services ecosystem continues to drive considerable benefits for institutions and consumers. However, it also introduces new risks, some of which may threaten the stability of the financial system if not properly identified and managed. To better understand these risks and identify approaches to address and mitigate them, the World Economic Forum and Deloitte consulted over 100 financial services and technology experts in the development of a new report, Pushing through undercurrents. This new study explores the implications of technology-driven risk originating in five sectors (banking, capital markets, payments, insurance and investment management), and investigates the regional implications of critical cross-sector risks.

This presentation will:

  • Share the outcomes and implications at the intersection of strategy, innovation, and risk management focused mainly on Banking and Capital Markets
  • Discuss focused mitigation strategies that can support Banks and Broker Dealers operating in Japan
