Financial Services: Analysing radical transformation

A first UKHotViews piece from TechMarketView's new Research Director, Jon Davies

I am very excited to have joined TechMarketView and its respected team of analysts. As a long-time subscriber to the firm’s research, I recognise what fantastic support TechMarketView provides to both tech suppliers and tech buyers. As my predecessor Peter Roe starts his well-earned retirement, I’d like to thank him for keeping us all so well informed over the years.

We all know that the market for financial services technology has changed dramatically in recent years, and the UK landscape is set for even more radical transformation in the near future. It is my intention to shed even greater light jonon the shifting market dynamics that are impacting the sector, highlighting the opportunities for suppliers and the best strategic direction for banks, insurers and other providers.

In my short time with TechMarketView, I have already had the chance to engage with some of those in the vanguard of change (see Loot: The FinTech only your kids have heard of?). And, over the coming weeks and months, I aim to explore some of the major forces impacting the UK financial services industry. TechMarketView’s Predictions for the sector in 2019 (see Financial Services Predictions 2019) show major regulatory, economic, political and technological forces all coming into play. Particularly important areas included Open Banking - where I will examine what the most innovative players are doing to take advantage of the reforms - and AI/cognitive, where I will assess the key providers and key implementations/case studies. You can expect much more besides, including the key Market Trends & Forecasts and Supplier Landscape research.

I Iook forward to enjoying some stimulating conversations with you and finding out more about your own transformation journeys. You can contact me directly on
