Worldwide Financial Services 2012 Top 10 Predictions Thriving or Just Surviving?

This IDC Financial Insights report presents our top 10 predictions for global financial services. As we entered 2011, optimism was gaining traction; however, as the year progressed, economic and market conditions began to erode. Looking into 2012, financial institutions will need to directly address the concerns around regulatory changes as well as deal with an aging infrastructure that may manifest into customer interruptions of service and continued public sentiment against the industry.

According to David Potterton, vice president of Global Research at IDC Financial Insights, "While 2012 will be challenging for many financial institutions around the world, it also presents strategic opportunities for firms with vision to create the foundation to offer the next generation of financial products and services."
