Digital Finance: Meeting Ethics & Compliance Challenges in Financial Services - Global Report

This global report written by the Economist Intelligence Unit and sponsored by Mazars investigates financial services businesses through the lens of ethics and compliance, with an understanding of the changing role that technology can play.

Today, financial services companies are in the process of implementing the changes required by the new regulations. At the same time, they are responding to a surge of digitisation, in commerce in general and in financial services in particular. Some forwardlooking financial services companies—either alone or in combination with financial technology providers—are seizing on the opportunities presented by both regulation and digitisation to upgrade their internal and customer-facing systems. Their aim is to improve risk assessment, increase transparency, and thereby begin to restore the public trust that was damaged by the financial meltdown.
