"The best way to predict the future is to create it." – Peter Drucker
As another year comes to a close, our ﬁnal Thomson Reuters Exchange issue for 2016 turns its focus to the future. Our industry is transforming at a relentless pace and helping our customers to stay ahead (and on top) of change requires us to be ever on the front foot. Increasingly that means we are innovating and partnering at the most forward edge of the ﬁnancial industry’s evolution, and helping ﬁnancial and risk professionals by creating solutions today for their opportunities tomorrow.
In this issue several of our colleagues offer their views on what lies ahead. Our head of Applied Innovation Bob Schukai describes a future based on the “Internet of me”; global head of Innovation Amanda West and CFA head of Content Strategy and Innovation Tim Baker write on the potential of distributed ledger technology; director of Big Data Quantitative Research Adam Baron details how “data exhaust” is increasingly being turned into treasure; International Financing Review (IFR) editor at large Keith Mullin imagines the banking regulatory landscape in 2026; senior Regulatory Intelligence expert Susannah Hammond highlights our newest research on the future of RegTech and managing director for Regulatory, Pricing and Reference Services Marion Leslie writes on how automation will transform regulatory compliance.
Additionally, Thomson Reuters Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) subject experts Tim Nixon and André Chanavat show the “path ahead” for climate data and analyze board diversity through the lens of our new Diversity & Inclusion Index and Third Party Risk executive Jo Webb provides insight on data’s role in ending modern slavery. And EY Global Banking & Capital Markets consultant Karl Meekings gives us a fascinating look ahead at the banking workforce of the future.
A rich set of insights and views on important topics for our industry, I hope and think you will agree, and we look forward to continuing to provide the trusted information, intuitive technology and insightful people that deliver the ANSWERS our customers need to succeed on the road ahead.
