Financial Services


The financial services industry irrevocably and monumentally changed in the last ten years due to digital disruption. The past five years brought a higher level of innovative digital technologies than ever before. Digital transformation combined with the industry’s highly regulated nature has led to an exponential increase in the content that firms deal with, such as regulatory publications, KYC docs (e.g., passports and payslips), claim forms, application forms, leases, and other documents. These are in addition to the mountains of internal documentation stuck in silos, which hinders legacy financial institutions from using it to drive business decisions.

Internal data needs to be combined with public domain data to enable banks, asset management companies, and hedge funds to drive personalized customer experiences and identify ways for alpha generation while ensuring efficient operations to reduce costs.

The rise of FinTechs, which operate outside the barriers of legacy systems in a digital-only environment, has accelerated the pressure on financial institutions. While financial institutions have come a long way in implementing machine learning and AI, these are limited mainly to structured datasets.
