Envisioning the future of finance

ENVISIONING FINANCIAL TECHNOLOGIES Innotribe :: (SWIFT ENABLING COLLABORATIVE INNOVATION The financial sector is practically as old as humanity itself. Currency and value are intrinsically connected to modern society, and historical attempts to undo this tie have failed. While the sector is frequently mired in crises, it has shown surprising resilience from being displaced by other paradigms. Rapid advances and dissemination of emerging technology, however, promises to upend many characteristics we take for granted. This visualization attempts to gauge the technological readiness of the financial industry as a whole. While looking at trends that are likely to influence the very notion of value in the coming decades, we try to establish a baseline of whether organizations are paying enough attention to the imminent changes that will define the future of society or if they are running the risk of letting accelerating change vanquish existing business models. Our online presence already serves to build quantifiable reputation systems. In a potentic post-scarcity future, reputation might become the new currency, bringing unimaginable change to our current notions of value and currency. The financial sector is no stranger to big data, but massive advances in information capture and computation technologies demand an ever faster pace of adoption for the industry. UNPREPARED Data-driven regulation 1 The industry might be aware of these technologies, but is not actively working on them. Post-scarcity economies DATA Reputation management Perhaps the technological artifact most closely associated to finance, currencies are undergoing considerable transforma- tion.

However, a wealth of emerging technologies are promising to bring several new sources of information into the fold.

For being our main access point to the internet, they'll take on a role broader than merely a "better wallet". The financial sector is beholden to tight security and predicting illicit activity. Invariably, new technologies permit new vectors of attack, demanding more foresight from the industry.

The power of crowds is immutable, but how to properly leverage this potential is for each organization to decide. Advances in technology tends to lower the bar of entry from incumbents. Entire swathes of the financial sector risk being displaced by nimble startups from around the world that are all willing to put the consumer first.
