The World Economic Forumís recent Report on the future of payments

The World Economic Forum has examined how FinTechs have impacted on the financial sector, including in terms of the competitive landscape, in a Report published in late August 2017. The Report looks among other things at the disruptive forces that are potentially set to impact on the competitive landscape of the financial ecosystem going forwards. Interestingly the Report looks also at the role that large tech companies such as Google and Facebook are playing in the financial ecosystem and at their systemic importance, and suggests that attempts by incumbent financial institutions to emulate the core capabilities of large technology firms will increasingly lead to even more reliance on those same large technology firms. Oonagh Harrison and Kate Johnson of Osborne Clarke discuss the Report and the emerging themes therein of the future of payments and the role of large tech companies in financial services.
