We believe that capital markets in 2020 will look very different than they do today. Based on feedback from clients, many have gloomily predicted a shrinking capital markets landscape, overregulation and the fall of traditionally powerful financial centres such as London and New York. However, we have a different vision for 2020 – one of a new equilibrium. This new equilibrium consists of a traditional financial axis of power further solidifying their positions at the top and the world seeking stability and predictability in the context of riskier and more uncertain geopolitical situations. In addition, much of the landscape where financial institutions operate will change significantly. This change will come from economic and government policies, innovation, operational restructuring, technology, from smarter and more demanding clients, companies harnessing powerful data and from continued growth of the shadow banking system.
