Global Financial Innovation Network

The standard quote ‘Innovation is the lifeblood of business’ leads to the slightly scarier ‘Innovate or die’. Either way, the view that individuals, businesses, countries and societies need to innovate to survive is well established. It has only been reinforced during the last three years of the pandemic, with numerous examples of new thinking and technology being required.

Regulation, done properly, can enhance innovation and enable it to flourish, whilst also protecting individuals and financial stability.  But in a world that is evermore connected, how should you do this?

Long-term global trends continue to evolve, increasing demand for energy, water, healthcare, food and materials. To address this rising demand we need to alter the way we build cities, generate energy, travel, grow food and clothe ourselves.
