A New Financial Revolution Has Begun
The first one started in the late 1600s, when England adopted a set of financing techniques that had been developed in the Netherlands. These innovations, which included the advent of bonds, stocks and checks, came to embody a financial revolution that paved the way for England’s global ascendancy over the next 100 years.
Today, thanks to the exponential rate of technological change, macroeconomic forces and new realities ushered in by the Great Financial Crisis, a new financial revolution is underway. In its wake, every aspect of financial services — asset management, commercial banking, investment banking, wealth management and trading — is being questioned, reinvented or challenged.
