Issue #218 of the Fintech Analyst report look at how banks are changing technology strategies as they look to a return to ‘normal’. We also look at how investors view risk and liquidity, how Nubank is bucking the neobank trend and why FIs and regulators need to mitigate a ‘data crisis’. We also consider the future of industry ecosystems, Société Générale’s digital progress and the wealth management opportunity in Australia.
