The fast-growing adoption of financial innovation is rapidly changing the value chain in financial services encompassing banking, insurance, asset management, and capital markets. Such innovation is helping to revolutionize payments, wealth advisory services (through robotic systems), fundraising, and investment activities. The emerging financial
solutions are also rapidly being developed to help banks and other financial firms deal with the complexities of regulatory compliance and other operational issues. The emergence of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies have also altered the ways in which data can be stored securely and anonymously (through distributed ledger systems). Ways in which we view the role and functions of currencies have also changed by the emergence of over 3000 digital currencies. Fincial innovation and
financial technology developments will create great opportunities but will also pose new sources of risks to the banking sector.
Traditional bank business models are being reconfigured. Increased competition and narrower profit margins from traditional banking (as well as capital markets and insurance) areas will force existing players to adopt new technologies, improve customer experience, and open up new revenue streams to address these challenges.
In the light of these new developments, the proposed journal of European Financial Management special issue aims to provide a timely and comprehensive overview of the implications of financial innovation for banks, businesses, and financial regulators.
