Finance

Technology has begun to affect every aspect of the finance industry, with digital disruption from FinTech companies changing the way that consumers want to interact with their banks, new government legislation setting higher standards for how companies have to operate and the gig economy rendering traditional recruitment and employee retention processes ineffective.

FinTech Software

In the past 10 years, FinTech startups have become an increasing threat to the traditional finance industry, as they were focused on spending time and money on innovation and begun offering consumers more options when it came to their financial needs.

As well as drawing customers away from traditional banks, the advancement of FinTech has lead to many consumers expecting more from their banks. This has lead to many banks making FinTech a major priority,with areas such as artificial intelligence and cryptocurrency being key areas of focus.

In march 2018, the UK government announced a cryptocurrency task force to harness the benefits of blockchain technology.

 
 

The increased interest in the area has meant that a lot of the skilled and experienced workerscompanies are looking for to help them progress their FinTech strategy are in high demand.

ClearHub can help you find contractors with these skills quickly, helping you to advance in everything from strategy and planning to in-house development. Find support techniciansproject managersfront end developerssoftware developers and many more with ClearHub.

Consumer Experience

In the financial services industry, technology has created new methods for the customer to transact and engage with their banks.

This has increased both the potential and complexity of a positive customer experience, and to achieve customer excellence banks must find new ways to embrace these technologies.

Machine Learning

As well as new opportunities in fraud prevention and investment banking, machine learning can also help to improve customer service. One major problem is inefficient automated service desks, which are incapable of handling unusual issues or requests.

Using machine learning, these systems can be developed to use collected data to recognise patterns and interpret behaviour, meaning they will be able to handle a wider range of customer requests and find solutions more quickly.

big data engineer or developer could help you to begin implementing these solutions and working them into your existing procedures.

Advanced Analytics

Advancements in analytics have created new opportunities for businesses to understand and improve the customer journey. Collected data can help to boost P&L levers, accelerate and find new sources of growth and improve risk control.More detailed customer profiles can improve acquisition and retention, as well as revealing opportunities for cross-selling and up-selling.

Bringing in a contract business analyst can help you to interpret collected data and realign your CX strategies to optimise benefits.

Contextual Engagement

Financial companies are becoming aware of the benefits of contextual engagement, and how they can enhance user experience by connecting with them in the way they prefer.

Marketing to your audience at the right time for them to invest can maximise return on marketing promotions. You must know and understand your customer, engage with them regularly and deliver a consistently positive experience. An omni-channel approach will make the most of a variety of ways to connect with the customer.

ClearHub can help you find developers to get these interaction points set up and running efficiently, based on the data you have on your customers.

Financial Regulations

2018 has been a year that has already transformed financial regulations, with one new legislation already in play and another one to follow shortly.

The first of these, MIFID II, is a set of radical reforms to the 2004 Markets in Financial Instruments Directive legislation, designed to try and prevent a repeat of the 2008 credit crisis. MIFID II came into implementation on January 3rd 2018, and affects everything from where and how derivatives can be traded to measures for reaching volatility and policing potential conflicts of interest amongst financial advisors.

The second new legislation coming in 2018 is GDPR. The General Data Protection Regulation aims to increase the control individuals have over how their data is used, and give them the right to have all the personal information an organisation has about them erased.

ClearHub can help you find highly skilled security engineers and administrators who can help you to ensure your compliance with these legislations, making sure any additional tools and systems you require are running properly.

REQUEST A CONTRACTOR

Budget and Spending

The demands that FinTech, new legislations and user expectations place affect the whole company, but in particular place a large amount of pressure on the IT department, to deliver the new initiatives needed to meet these demands.

Despite increasing demands, most IT departments have found that their budgets are remaining constant or even declining, forcing them to improve their IT budget management and find ways to make their budgets go further.

ClearHub can help in several ways. Firstly, we can help you find a business analyst who can look through your enterprise IT spending and help you identify any unnecessary spend or areas where you can cut down.

ClearHub can also help you find contractors who can fill multiple gaps across your department. When outsourcing work, you will often pay a set amount for a particular job to be done and no more. However, when bringing in a ClearHub contractor, you will have access to all their knowledge and experience, and can utilise this across several projects.

Furthermore, you will have access to the support of Clearvision, adding even more business value to the set rate you’d be paying.
