  6. 6. Finance Sector Challenges 6 1.  Finance crisis in 2008 started a chain reaction that impacted regulation, credibility and business models of banks 2.  More regulation and more requirements for capital have limited banks’ capability to lend for business customers 3.  Digital currencies and especially the underlining technology, like blockchain, enables new ways to make transactions without payment processors and banks 4.  People and companies are more critical towards finance institutions and service costs, e.g. in fund raising, wealth management and asset management ›  Leads to try alternative providers ›  Crowdfunding and p2p lending have emerged 5.  Goldman Sachs has estimated that the alternative finance addressable market is $3.3 Trillion 6.  Average growth rate of the UK alternative Finance market is 159% 47% 68% 23% 49% UK US Level of confidence in banks 2008 2013 Source: Edelman Trust Barometer 350m 873m 2337m 0 500 1000 1500 2000 2500 2012 2013 2014 The UK alternative finance market growth Source: University of Cambridge and EY: The European Alternative Finance Benchmarking Report

  8. 8. Fragmented Emerging Market 8 Customer demand §  Customers want their financial services faster, cheaper and continuously available Platforms §  Hundreds of online platforms, especially for startup crowdfunding and P2P lending have emerged §  Most of financial services have their own platforms §  In principle the platforms are quite similar, although some differences in assets and investment model details §  Most of the platforms would need more volume to offer more value and become a real business Other factors §  New innovations, like payments, digital currencies and their technology, have several different models and no standards §  The regulation and requirements in different countries are different §  It is hard to get data to make investment analyses, decisions and finance products for the new markets

  11. 11. Value Chain 11 Process Phase1 Phase2 Phase3 Phase4 Customer interference X Ltd. X Ltd. X Ltd. X Ltd. X Ltd. Y Ltd. X Ltd. K GmbH. Z Plc. Z Plc. Pre Digital Era Post Digital Era •  In pre digital era companies were able to manage alone the whole infrastructure and implement all services for customers •  Telecom, banks, manufacturing companies •  In post digital era the value chain is provided by different providers •  Parties specialize into specific part of value chain which brings cost efficiency •  Also development and innovation is thus faster •  Example: •  Apple’s App store welcomed also other parties to build apps when Nokia stubbornly tried to do all alone and failed
  12. 12. Application Program Interface 12 API (application program interface) is a technical solution on how different applications discuss with each other •  It is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications •  The API specifies how software components should interact and APIs are used when programming graphical user interface (GUI) components Examples: •  Windows has many API sets that are used by system hardware and applications. When you copy and paste text from one application to another, it is the API that allows that to work •  YouTube API: Google's APIs lets developers integrate YouTube videos and functionality into websites or applications API technology links the fragmented value chain Y Ltd. A GmbH. Z Plc. API API

  19. 19. Market Trends in Digital Finance 19 Customers §  Customers want their financial services online §  Faster, cheaper, continuous access Service Providers §  More services for different verticals §  E.g. based on asset class, investment instrument, special data §  More horizontal services §  E.g. asset, portfolio and wealth management §  But less services for each individual vertical and horizontal position §  E.g. not thousands of real estate or startup crowdfunding services §  All services become more international §  Each service must offer real unique added value in its position §  Some services, like back offices and data services, are linked between all services §  Digital currency and their technology can make solutions more decentralized §  However, there are still many uncertainties in this development e.g. due to regulation and reliability of the services
  20. 20. Next Wave 20 1. Consolidation of crowdfunding, investing and lending platforms 2. New value added services like wealth management, portfolio management tools, data services and risk management products 3. More digital finance instruments, e.g. data--managed fund services 4. Mixing of private and public markets in portfolio and wealth management 5. Combination of data science and artificial intelligence create totally new era for finance products (and complex questions for regulators)
  21. 21. Seven Theses for Incumbents 21 1. Digital services make services become more effective the need of middle-men is decreased à smaller fees to fewer parties 2. More data oriented approach for many services and products with better transparency à harder to make business only based on right contacts and information 3. Decreasing entry barriers à more competition 4. Technologies enable direct transactions between parties (P2P) à less need for ‘centralized accounts and transaction services’, i.e. banks 5. Private and public markets become more similar and linked to each other à many digital services are linked to both markets 6. Mandatory to find own unique positions in the new ecosystem à hard decisions to abandon something 7. Technology and data competences are important à need to change people
  22. 22. Summary 22 §  Finance is in the beginning of the same digital revolution that other industries have gone through (Uber, Amazon, Netflix) ›  The time and cost efficiency advantages of digitalization for both clients and service providers are undisputable ›  “Everything that can become a platform will become a platform” §  It is crucial to find your place in the digital finance ecosystem §  The value chain disruption means more partners and less solo §  The big finance institutions have started to taken actions to be part of digitalization and alternative finance market, but it is also hard for an incumbent to make the transition for a new era §  Digital finance will be one of the biggest industry disruptions during the next 10 years
