  • The financial services industry is adjusting to significant structural changes that policymakers promote as a response to the recent crisis. Banks are still increasing their capital and liquidity buffers, and are implementing numerous other changes as required by new regulation. While banks become more resilient, they are also facing pressure on profitability as a consequence of higher capital costs. Alongside regulatory changes, banks business models are challenged by digitalisation and adverse market conditions such as negative interest rates.
