Scanning the horizon

By Sharon Lewis

2018 is likely to be another eventful year for the Financial Institutions sector. Across the world, we're facing change of every order; the question is how you deal with it?

Whether you're affected by regulatory changes or geopolitical uncertainty there will be a lot to watch and prepare for. All areas of the sector will have a long to-do list this year as we prepare our businesses for the future. Europe is leading the way with regulation, with MiFID II, PSD2 and GDPR all taking affect this year. Ensuring your systems and procedures are up-to-date and remain up-to-date is key. These regulatory changes also need to be considered under the guise of geopolitical upheaval. How will Brexit and the Trump administration affect the ecosystem around the FIS sector? Technology and innovation also continue to shape the sector. Every business is impacted, including our own, and is considering how technology can drive efficiencies and deliver a better service for customers and clients. How well we all adapt to this innovation will certainly shape our futures.

Here we've collected a global snapshot of topics on the horizon, which we think you should be preparing for and will help shape your next 12 months. You will also find lawyers associated with each topic, please contact them if you want to discuss anything further.
