Cutting through the noise around financial technology

Here's how banks should respond. Banking has historically been one of the business sectors most resistant to disruption by technology. Since the first mortgage was issued in England in the 11th century, banks have built robust businesses with multiple moats: ubiquitous distribution through branches; unique expertise such as credit underwriting underpinned by both data and judgment; even the special status of being regulated institutions that supply credit, the lifeblood of economic growth, and have sovereign insurance for their liabilities (deposits). Euroclear Sees Seven Steps to Bring Blockchain to Capital Markets.

The publication follows news that Euroclear is working with its peers, including CME Group and the London Stock Exchange, on a consortium for post-trade settlement. Overall, the report recommends the industry take seven steps to realize the technology, including working on proof-of-concepts, collaborating with industry peers and "preparing a narrative" for regulators and supervisory bodies that may interested in the implications of such investigations.

How the payments industry is being disrupted

Once again, Asia—and China in particular—is the primary engine propelling the global numbers, but all regions, even those where revenues have recently been in decline, are contributing to the surge. Payments growth is currently a truly global phenomenon. Looking ahead, however, we expect global payments revenues will begin to reflect the flip side of Asia’s prominence as a growth driver.

The expected macroeconomic slowdown in Asia–Pacific, in other words, is dampening expectations for payments growth overall. However, the turnaround in other markets will make up for some of this decline. Our most recent research reveals several additional trends of note.

Midyear Outlook: Five Distinct Macro Disconnects. By HENRY H. MCVEY Jun 25, 2015 While we certainly appreciate that generating outsized returns has gotten more complicated as the cycle has progressed, we still see five distinct macro “disconnects,” or arbitrages that we view as attractive for long-term patient capital.
