Risk and compliance

FinTech emerged on the scene as an alternative hybrid solution to financial institutions. However, the lines have almost disappeared in recent years considering new developments.

There is a growing trend of FinTech businesses pursuing bank charters, and in turn, banks are nurturing relationships with FinTech companies to full fill consumer demand—a total transformation of both the FinTech and traditional financial services domain.

Both fields have been affected by new rules and regulations amid the evolution of technology. As a result, the risk of regulatory scrutiny and obligations have increased simultaneously, causing the need for compliance experts to rise.

In addition to compliance, risk control managers are also in demand. More financial companies need specialists to analyse, prevent and mitigate risks, including regulations, operations and crime.

‘Quants’ are the smart people who write the big, complex financial models. They are the ones behind the data-driving trading technology that large investment banks and hedge funds use to trade securities and analyse risk. As big data continues to rise, quants are becoming more important in FinTech to devise models that can sort through the massive amount of data and automate them so that trading can be a mostly automatic process.

Artificial intelligence

Digital transformation is a hot topic in the FinTech space, making technology adoption a top priority for organizations today.

The financial services industry flourishes on informed decision-making, from extending credit to consumers to evaluating risks.

In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have helped businesses make fast and critical decisions with data and insight. Across the industry, organizations have turned to these technologies to transform their business through AML pattern detection, chatbots, risk management, fraud prevention, network security and investment predictions.

Data Specialist

Deloitte recently highlighted the important strategic role of data in a report with the World Economic Forum about trends affecting the financial services industry. Innovation that emerges will allow financial companies to have access to new sets of data, including social data, and allow new ways to understand markets and customers.

As clients are more empowered by the Internet and digital technologies, clients are becoming more proactive and want new financial services companies to give them more individual services tailored to their needs. So, there will be a need for data scientists, chief data officers, financial data analysts and data analytics managers needed to sift through information that can provide more insights into their markets.
