BUSINESS ARENA ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF THE 2023 FINANCIAL LEADERS' HALL OF FAME AWARDS

1024 afisari
Business Arena announced the winners of its annual financial and banking industry awards, as we are nearing the end of a year full of challenges and success stories. Banks and the financial sector operate in a highly competitive environment, and have made outstanding progress in introducing new and innovative products and cutting-edge technologies in order to adapt their business model to the requirements of today's digital world. Therefore, Business Arena Magazine is proud to recognize the achievements and successes of banks, financial institutions and business leaders who find the winning strategies in spite of the challenging economic background.



Taking a broader view of the industry, McKinsey & Company's Global Banking Annual Review 2023: The Great Banking Transition points out that profits are up in banking, "thanks to rising interest rates, but financial institutions globally need to reinvent themselves in the face of major structural and macroeconomic shifts."
The report also notes that the industry has had "to chart a challenging course over the past few years, during which institutions faced increased oversight, digital innovation, and new competitors, and all at a time when interest rates were at historic lows. The past few months have also brought their share of upsets, including liquidity woes and some bank failures. But, broadly speaking, a favorable wind seems to have returned to the industry’s sails. The past 18 months have been the best period for global banking overall since at least 2007, as rising interest rates have boosted profits in a more benign credit environment."
Looking ahead, the McKinsey report expects the future to be influenced by four global trends: "First, the macroeconomic environment has shifted substantially, with higher interest rates and inflation figures in many parts of the world, as well as a possible deceleration of Chinese economic growth. An unusually broad range of outcomes is suddenly possible, suggesting we may be on the cusp of a new macroeconomic era. Second, technological progress continues to accelerate, and customers are increasingly comfortable with and demanding about technology-driven experiences. In particular, the emergence of generative AI could be a game changer, lifting productivity by three to five percent and enabling a reduction in operating expenditures of between $200 billion and $300 billion, according to our estimates. Third, governments are broadening and deepening regulatory scrutiny of nontraditional financial institutions and intermediaries as the macroeconomic system comes under stress and new technologies, players, and risks emerge. For example, recently published proposals for a final Basel III “endgame” would result in higher capital requirements for large and medium-size banks, with differences across banks. And fourth, systemic risk is shifting in nature as rising geopolitical tensions increase volatility and spur restrictions on trade and investment in the real economy."
