Innovate or adapt? Strategies for the next wave of digital banking. Innovation remains a buzzword in banking. But how realistic are genuinely innovative strategies? In more cautious times since the financial crisis, isn’t it wiser to adapt in an incremental way to new regulation, competition, and customer requirements? We believe both innovation and adaptation are required.

We’re debating the impact of cost to trade and success strategies at Banking Reloaded Conference on October 29, New York. Don’t miss this chance to meet the experts and find out how to reduce costs and boost profitability.

Why is calculating the cost to trade so elusive for banks? The first hurdle for trading entities starts with complicated capital charges for products, based on whether they are exchange or bi-laterally traded. In addition, regulatory capital influences favor higher-rated counterparties adding another layer of complexity to the mix, and front office implications are just the beginning.

What trends have dominated the banking industry since April? You do not have to look too far to see that opinion is sharply divided. On the one hand we have witnessed the return to healthy profits with many pundits arguing that banking has turned the corner and that we are seeing the first signs of sustained recovery since 2008. On the other, there are those pointing out that in spite of resurgent balance sheets, we are still in the middle of a fundamental transformation of the sector, where complex regulation is expanding with little or no end in sight; productivity remains below benchmarks set by leaders in other industries; and where investors remain skeptical – although some optimism is returning. All these themes are the subject this Journal issue given the lively debate about the future of the industry, we aim to uncover the real issues and the prominent solutions available to financial markets participants.

In this concluding blog in our series on changeSourcing (CS), we ask – and answer – four of the most frequently asked questions.

Question: We have built up considerable “expertise equity” in our change delivery capability. Does changeSourcing mean we lose our equity?

No, absolutely not. A well thought out CS program will not only keep one’s current expertise and capability intact, it will also quickly grow it through direct access to best practice and current industry experience.
