Our Themes

Considering changing global dynamics, we have developed high conviction themes which reimagine how banks will serve society.

Online Economy & Lifestyle
The rise and integration of the online economy is a key driver for economic growth. Finance needs to support the digital lifestyles of this new economy
SMEs & World Trade
World trade is a crucial engine for global welfare and GDP growth, but SMEs still struggle with inclusion with the global economy and access to the financial system
Digital Assets
Digital assets are here to stay, but in need of a sustainable and safe infrastructure, which banks are well positioned to provide
Sustainability & Inclusion
Corporates and banks have the opportunity to fully integrate sustainability and financial inclusion into their business models
