Market Finance

To improve their profitability, market finance players must integrate new technologies.

But also, beyond short-term measures to optimise costs by reducing headcount, the challenge is to re-engage existing talent and recreate the conditions for attracting young talent, within an innovative financial ecosystem?

And more fundamentally, in the face of rising societal and environmental demands, can finance contribute to significantly accelerating the transition in France and Europe?

Investment banks, asset managers and brokers need to reinvent their business model, whether to improve the customer experience or to steer financing towards a sustainable economy. A cultural change will make it possible to mobilise the expertise and imagination of bank employees to meet these challenges, in close association with the most audacious Fintechs and ESNs, which are designing platforms that combine business and Data/IA, particularly in the service of green finance.
