This IDC Financial Insights report presents our top 10 predictions for global financial services. Despite the recovery made through most of 2013, economic uncertainty, slowing global markets, and increased regulation have continued to prevent global growth needed to propel the industry. 2014 will present its own challenges, particularly as the previous year's problems have not been solved going into 2014.
According to Scott Lundstrom, group vice president and general manager, IDC Financial Insights, "What we will be looking for in 2014 is to see how financial institutions balance initiatives between investing in innovation and providing value for the customer, all while placating the regulators. In addition, the IT organization continues to struggle with when and where to invest in today's technology — particularly as we are in the midst of a significant tech refresh."
