Where do banks and financial institutions go from here?
The world's leaders have demonstrated their willingness to support the financial system with huge capital injections and rapidly introduced measures to prop up the major economies of the world. A change to the nature of work may have been accelerated due to the measures imposed during the pandemic, but a new era of banking and finance, reshaped by fintech, was already upon us, and a total re-imagining of the energy sector was already well underway, ably supported by many banks and FI's.
While global growth may have to take a back-seat, banks and financial institutions will have an important role re-establishing trade, financing re-development activity, and restoring normality in society. This will require real tenacity within financial institutions, advising their clients on rarely confronted issues and maintaining extreme discipline in capital allocation. A renewed focus on infrastructure development seems likely, with a shift of focus to towards different asset classes already predicted. The continuation, or acceleration, of the drive to decarbonise the economy is already gathering significant support. Further, on the human capital front, it is expected that different skill sets and capabilities in banks and financial institutions will be required in the future.
How are banks and financial institutions protecting themselves from the fallout of the COVID19 epidemic and how can they best play a role in societal renaissance in the 2020's? What measures can be employed to accelerate healing, both for the banks and FI's themselves, and for their clients who will need to rely on external assistance like never before? How will banks justify their decisions to governments and regulators in an environment where public scrutiny is likely to exceed that of the pre-COVID19 world?
