FIBAC 2018 CEO Valedictory Session: Building Indian Financial Services for the Next Decade

Session by Yashraj Erande, Partner & Director, BCG - Financial services will need to be fundamentally reimagined and reconfigured around the demands of the nation in the coming decade. The Indian macro environment will be structurally unique - data rich country with young demographic, a market that is still under penetrated in terms of credit, digitally savvy and yet going through the pangs of migrating from informal to formal economy.

Digital Advances in Corporate Banking

Corporate banking might seem far removed from the digital disruption that has rattled so many sectors. But a recent BCG survey of corporate banking customers worldwide reveals that the industry is on the cusp of a far-reaching digital shakeout.
