Financial and Digital Services: A New Consumption Model

16 Jun , 11:00–12:15
Modern Technology for Humanity: Building a Responsible Future
Pavilion G, conference hall G3
In partnership with Finuslugi Platform

The future of financial services is a seamless, high-speed service between provider and customer. Digitalisation has changed our approach to consumption in all areas of our lives – platforms and ecosystems offer tools enabling us to purchase goods and services or obtain information instantaneously. Companies that have made digitalisation a key element of their business model have become leaders in their markets. The Russian financial market has also become one of the largest beneficiaries – the influx of millions of private investors over the past few years has stimulated the rapid development of the services available to them. Retail investors, without whom no IPO would have taken place over the last two years, have become the main driving force in the current environment: they already account for more than 70% of stock trading and, judging by their increasing activity, that figure will only grow as they expand into adjacent markets – bond issues, primary real estate, commodity markets. Issues concerning the choice of reliable tools and platforms for purchasing goods and services and searching for profitable investments, savings and other financial products have taken on a new urgency. What changes await platforms in the current environment? How will they compete with one another for the more cautious and at the same time more demanding retail customer? Which traditional and innovative tools and services have the greatest potential in the current environment?
