While much attention has been placed on the speculative swings of cryptocurrency, distributive ledgers such as blockchain are rapidly enabling transformation of business processes and practices in Financial Services and beyond.
Whether it’s simplified, frictionless, cross border payments; more advantageous lending solutions with a lower cost of capital; streamlined and asset and wealth management, or enforcement of smart contracts, financial institutions are continuing to look at leveraging blockchain for new business opportunities and operational models for value creation. Further, emerging businesses in Fintech, Healthcare, Technology, and Consumer Products continue to leverage distributed ledgers to disrupt the status quo, while utilizing the cryptocurrency aspect to raise capital through Initial cash offerings (ICOs).
To succeed in this fast-changing environment, you need the right leaders, when and where you need them – leaders who can drive innovation and new business models, possess the unique skill-set to marry a view of market need with an understanding of blockchain technology and maintain the agility to navigate today’s digital, social and mobile landscape. All while communicating a long-term strategic vision for the organization. Further, you need strong cybersecurity leaders to ensure you remain one step ahead of potential threats that will target distributed ledgers. Finally, you will require top talent that understand intricately the emerging regulations governing blockchain and cryptocurrencies, as the SEC and other key governing bodies across the globe increase their scrutiny on ICOs and distributed ledgers.
