In the age of hyper-competition, disruptive innovation is a linchpin for growth, and the financial industry is no exception to this rule. Until a few years ago, financial institutions relied upon a closed innovation model that leveraged in-house research and development teams and internal technology infrastructure to launch new products and services; but the entry of FinTechs combined with new technologies, stringent regulations, and market forces have changed the way banks look at innovation.
