The financial services industry has never experienced more dramatic change and disruption. Revenue and profit sources are evolving. Cost pressures are on the rise. Consumer behaviors are changing. Economic crises heightens the need for expertise in risk management. Rapidly evolving technological advances have resulted in increased integration of disparate platforms and a heightened focus on cyber security. The need for sophisticated executives who understand that big data strategies must translate into enhanced marketing and customer service is at an all-time high. In addition, mergers and acquisitions are expected to be on the rise due to increased competition and compressed margins. Overall, financial services firms must have executives who are agile, adaptive, unfazed by crisis and complexity, and capable of leading through periods of great change.
