Businesses and in particular financial institutions are having to transform due to digitalization, they are also under threat to be disrupted from the rising force of fintech startups. If organisations do cater for the digital disruption, the startups have the potential to shrink the role and relevance of incumbent financial institutions. The digital transformation is also now seen as the key for organisations to collect and store data that is needed, not only for decision making and financial disclosures but also support sustainability related disclosures. In this session, we will discuss some of these issues for practice and implications for policy.
