Challenges facing the Financial Services Sector today

Here are some key challenges faced by the Financial Services Sector.

Market disruption

Nimble, highly agile and consumer focused FinTech’s are disrupting the market with niche product lines and lower margins.

Customer Experience

Consumers are demanding, ever faster, better, cheaper omni-channel functionality, with a seamless customer experience. This creates huge challenges for organisations with legacy systems and multiple, unconnected information silos.

Increasing Regulation

Growing regulatory complexity and oversight covering international, national and state based transactions is creating huge financial, process and operational pressures for Financial Services Companies. They need to respond to regulatory requests for information, they must analyse the impact of new regulatory policies and implement new risk controls. There are new accountabilities to contend with and the need for authority to be delegated where appropriate.

Technological Disruption

Rapidly evolving technological capability and process improvement, from Big Data to Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning, is raising the competitive bar for all Financial Service organisations. They’re looking to identify cost optimisation opportunities and increase automation while streamlining operational functions and processes for all financial services, as well as digitally enhancing the customer experience.

Your questions answered

So, what are some of the burning questions being asked in the Financial Services Sector, and more importantly, how can the Capsifi Digital Business Platform deliver the answers and insight you need?

Strategy to Execution

How can Financial Service companies evolve so they’re able to continually set and re-set their strategic priorities?

Managing strategic goals and objectives in an increasingly uncertain and unpredictable environment is a huge challenge. Financial Services are having to continually monitor and adapt their strategic direction in response to shifting market needs and regulatory changes. To do this, you need to dynamically align your investment decisions, initiatives and evolving technological implementations.

Capsifi helps you achieve this by developing a dynamically linked digital operating model, including strategic objectives, business capability maturity, customer journey’s, value streams and initiative roadmaps.

Continuous transformation

How can Financial Service companies reach a point where they’re continually transforming?

Keeping pace with your competitors and addressing the digital demands of FS customers and partners requires a focus on continuous, systematic transformation. Building your capacity to continually transform, means developing enterprise feedback loops, capturing innovative ideas from front line employees, and having the ability to prioritise against strategic business drivers.

Through its highly evolved Customer Experience and Ideas Management functionality, Capsifi’s Digital Business Platform best helps you build the capacity to transform as well as showing you how to continually adapt your strategic priorities and pivot quickly – realigning your delivery to address customer, partner, and market demands.

Customer Experience

How can Financial Services bring the customer into the heart of their operating model?

The relentless pace of technology innovation has shifted the balance of power in customer interactions to the point where digitally enabled customers are now calling the shots. They have access to more responsive, ubiquitous information in evaluating their options than the information processing capabilities of businesses.

To address this issue, Financial Services need to develop meaningful relationships with their customers and continually access customer experience and needs.

Capsifi works with you to develop, reinforce, and adjust product offerings around value propositions targeted specifically at carefully defined customer segments. You’ll continuously monitor and measure the customer experience across their journeys and their interactions with your business. You’ll have access to an interactive canvas of up-to-the minute customer feedback, dynamically aligned to business levers and all elements of the operating model focused on moving the needle in response to the voice of your customers.

Governance, Risk & Compliance Traceability

How can Financial Services reduce the costs associated with managing their GRC landscape?

Regulatory demands on the Financial Services sector are continually evolving and impacting every aspect of the front, middle and back offices. Companies are having to allocate increasing levels of capital in order to analyse, maintain, and transform their GRC landscapes, and remain compliant. This involves an intricate web of governance processes, risk controls, individual accountabilities, performance metrics and more.

Capsifi helps by digitally mapping, tracing and modelling the intricacies of the GRC landscape. This reduces cost and enables you to respond quickly to regulatory queries, as well as quickly redesigning and transforming GRC requirements in line with new State or Federal policies.
