The trends impacting the banking, financial and wealth management industry are staggering in scope. The arrival of fast, new, nimble competitors driven by the speed of innovation and the scope of the opportunity with FinTech. A collapse of attention spans driven by the next generation financial consumer and an overwhelming preponderance of mobile banking apps. Cryptocurrencies, blockchain and massive business model disruption. The acceleration of the industry to speed of Silicon Valley as technology takes over every single aspect of the industry. The return of disintermediation with a vengeance, with sudden new challenges to existing distribution and broker channels. The arrival of a new generation that has never used cash, does not understand the concept of 'float', and who expects to be able to apply for an automative loan and receive approval in under 45 seconds - through their mobile device.
