In recent times, the notion of money, what it signifies and the form that it takes have changed drastically. Conspicuous consumption has given way to purpose-driven spending and the distribution of wealth has shifted seismically. The digital economy is creating new opportunities – and challenges – for the financial services industry as brands seek to engage a new breed of consumer.

In this report we create a road map for brands to navigate this new world of uncertainty and possibility, where issues of trust come face to face with all that the digital economy has to offer. It is filled with key trends, case studies and consumer insight as well as the strategic implications you will need to remain one step ahead in our new global financial landscape.
