The multiplier effect: The next evolution of innovation in financial services

The imperative for coordinated technology deployment in financial services to shape the future

This whitepaper elaborates the potential impact that emerging technologies will have on the financial service industry when they are clustered together and deployed strategically against key business challenges.

The multiplicative impact of emerging technologies

The financial service industry will be transformed by the multiplicative impact of emerging technologies such as AI, distributed ledger technologies, Internet of Things and quantum computing. Financial organizations are challenged to develop powerful innovation strategies taking into account the impact that coordinated, clustered deployments of these technologies could have on the industry. How can the industry ensure beneficial implementation of these technology clusters?

The financial services-specific standpoints of new competences enabled by emerging technologies and the amplification they create when clustered together is elucidated in this report created by Deloitte in collaboration with the World Economic Forum.


Three structural technology transformations

The study illustrates sector-specific use cases within six critical sectors - lending and deposits, investment management, payments, insurance, capital markets and market infrastructure – in addition it describes four important ‘pathways’ that could help organizations to develop operational models. Additionally the report provides insights in three structural transformations that will ultimately impact the industry.
