In the aftermath of the financial crisis, banks have undertaken the process of aggressively de-risking their balance sheets and their business models. But bank de-risking can increase the overall risk faced by the financial system and reduce transparency.http://www.earthport.com/news-insights/insights-blog/de-risking-new-risks-for-old/ #banking   #compliance   #derisking   #riskmanagement

We are living in uncertain times but one thing we can be sure of as we look ahead in 2017 – that the changes we have seen emerging over the past year will accelerate in the coming 12 months. http://www.earthport.com/news-insights/insights-blog/2017-the-momentum-of-trends-or-a-tale-of-the-unexpected/ #fintech   #dlt   #p2p   #mobilewallet   #payments   #banking

Even as 2016 draws to a close, the daily news reminds us that we live in a time of disruption. There is no doubt that this has been a remarkable year, that the cocktail of volatile markets, unexpected political events, terrorism and social unrest has created many challenges for society. http://www.earthport.com/news-insights/insights-blog/2016-disruption-collaboration-opportunity/ #dlt   #bigdata   #fintech   #banking   #payments   #cybersecurity

We all talk intensely about collaboration between banks and FinTechs, and dialogue at major industry events over the past year has been dominated by the subject – some of it is wishful thinking, most of it is well-intentioned, but no longer is this a case of anyone being dragged kicking and screaming to the collaboration table. Examples of successful partnerships are happening all the time. http://www.earthport.com/news-insights/insights-blog/collaboration-deal-maker/ #fintech   #banking   #payments   #fx   #PSD2

We all use eCommerce – essentially anything transacted online – virtually every day of our lives in some shape or form. It’s growing, it’s broadening and it’s covering the globe. http://www.earthport.com/news-insights/ecommerce-us-not-just-consumers/ #payments   #ecommerce   #B2B

Plenty of creativity, talk of collaboration and just a little impatience about the coming of blockchain. That’s how the mood could be described at Money20/20 2016 in Las Vegas. http://www.earthport.com/news-insights/viva-las-vegas-blockchain/ #ecommerce   #fintech   #payments

Increasingly, cyber security has become everyday dialogue across the financial sector, indeed many areas of business. In fact, it is not just business that has to be vigilant when it comes to the growing menace of cybercrime. We are all potential victims and we all have a responsibility to try and prevent it. http://www.earthport.com/news-insights/cyber-security-fighting-weapon-destruction/ #fintech  #security #compliance  #cybercrime
