A few numbers about the changes happening in finance

The CFTE website has 3 statements:

  • Goldman Sachs’ cash equity business employed 600 traders, now it’s 2
  • Fintech is forcing banks to a tipping point according to Citi
  • Zhong An, a new insurance company in China, now has 500 million clients – in 5 years

This shows the scale and rapidity of changes happening in finance.
In the case of Goldman Sachs, there is clearly a trend for more automation and fewer traders, it’s undeniable. On the other hand, Goldman Sachs now has more software engineers and developers than Facebook, so the nature of the work in banks has also clearly changed.
Citi’s report is a great report about Fintech, and more generally the trend in finance, and everybody interested in that topic should read it.
Finally, Zhong An is a new digital insurance company, launched in China 5 years ago. Their scale is incredible, and clearly shows that technology and new business models are disrupting traditional finance.
We’ll use this blog to write about these topics, so register on the right if you’re interested to receive the updates.
