Due to its core function in the economy, the banking system cannot avoid a certain level of fragility. Yet what factors reduce fragility and – in the event of a local crisis - how can contagion across the system be avoided? Not only from one institution to another, but across sectors and geographical borders. What steps need to be taken in order to minimize the remaining systemic risks and how do they affect the business models in banking?

Fragility has much to do with capital structure, credit portfolios and general confidence in banks, topics closely connected to the risk-taking culture in the institutions. Profound regulatory responses have been formed to transform conduct and culture in the financial industry in a more responsible direction: measurability and accountability are some of the key elements in this process. Dealing with the sheer numbers of the many new regulations resulting from this approach confronts the banks with new challenges and costs. The correspondent rise of RegTech and RiskTech services adds to the necessary level of digital competence on the regulatory side, which is already busy coming to terms with cloud computing, algorithmic models and AI.

Considering the speed of change the financial sector is currently facing and adding the tension and instability being brought in by the rise of economic nationalism, there are demanding times ahead.
