A new decade is an interesting and exciting time because it can start out one way and finish very differently. No matter what, it will have a sense of identity. What will the 2020s be known for? Gender equality? Combating climate change?
In this annual issue of Quintessence, we look at the things most on the minds of our clients as we enter the 2020s, not least the impact of low yields, new regulations such as SFTR and initial margin, the future COO, cybersecurity in the quantum era, and the integration of ESG.
A big thank you to our external contributors – AIIB, KKR, Thales, AMP Capital, B3 Brasil Bolsa Balcão, Bolsa de Valores de Colombia, the Shanghai Stock Exchange and the London Stock Exchange.
We hope that Quintessence brings you valuable insights and will help inform your decisions in 2020. Feel free to get the conversation flowing on these topics via Twitter (@BNPP2S) or our LinkedIn company page.
