Driving the next generation of fraud reforms

With a General Election announced for 4 July, now is the perfect time for a stock take on the progress made over the past decade in relation to tackling fraud.

It’s no surprise to see cybersecurity holding its position as one of the Financial Services (FS) sector’s most discussed topics right now.

The current macroeconomic landscape is marked by exceptional volatility and uncertainty, posing challenges to traditional models in the financial services sector. Despite this new challenging market context, some financial institutions continue to hit pause on using AI and cloud technology, falling behind the curve. Leveraging new technologies can no longer be a zero-sum game. This impact study explores: How can AI and cloud be leveraged to improve back-end processes, rather than just front-end experiences; How migrating to the cloud can fuel new use cases; The regulatory impact of PSD3, DORA and more; The benefits of data sovereignty and data governance; And more.

Cloud innovation paves path to the future

An open banking platform has the power to transform a bank, whether the bank is looking to modernise using technology on-premise, in the cloud or as Software-asa-Service (SaaS). In turn, banks gain access to endless opportunities to engage with customers and scale for massive demand. This event report, in association with Temenos, highlights the key takeaways from Temenos Community Forum 2023 that took place in Vienna, Austria. Bringing industry experts and partners together to explore new opportunities opened up by emerging technologies and the cloud, this year’s overarching event theme was ‘Engage and Grow in a Cloud World’. In this report, we explore the different ways that the cloud is accelerating transformation in the industry, including: Why banks are being disrupted by BaaS and embedded finance services; How agility, innovation, and customer experience are gaining momentum on the cloud; How to build resilient cloud infrastructure for sustainability; And more.

The Future of Digital Banking in North America 2024

2023 was characterised by increasing amounts of uncertainty and a lack of clarity across the financial world. The collapse of banks, including Silicon Valley Bank, Signature Bank and First Republican Bank, in March 2023, added strain to already unsettled financial markets. While market volatility has remained relatively stable, soaring inflation and climbing interest rates slowed economic growth and this is expected to continue into 2024.  While forecasts regarding the length and severity of a possible recession are speculative, experts are even more divided about stock market predictions for 2024. Optimism is strong in many investors who expect that 2024 is the year rates will stop rising and predict bullish turns that will see markets soar to new heights. Yet with many other factors affecting North American markets, the only certainty we can expect as we look towards 2024 is more uncertainty. This Finextra report on the outlook of North American banking trends, is produced in association with Money20/20 and includes key insights and commentary from industry experts at EY and Mastercard.

How to leverage quantum computing

Earlier this year, researchers devised a breakthrough method for creating supremely pure silicon – the fundamental material in quantum computers. Imperfections in existing silicone mean that today’s quantum computers can maintain coherence (or more simply, operation) for only a fraction of a second. This newly-created, ultra-pure element sustains ...
