New Release: Financial Institutions Horizons 2021

Financial Institutions Horizons 2021 provides a snapshot of key legal topics and market trends across the globe, shaping the future of the financial institutions market. 

We address critical questions surrounding these emerging risks and opportunities. For instance, as more customers have embraced digital out of necessity during the pandemic, how can financial institutions keep themselves and their customers safe from fraud and cyber-attacks? Will U.S. trade and economic policies towards Hong Kong and China see significant changes under the Biden administration? And despite many courts scaling back their work to only critical cases, how has the litigation landscape changed?

We also address key themes and trends that could lead to opportunities and risks for our clients in the financial institutions sector, including the implication of UK sanctions legislation in a post- Brexit environment; the avalanche of sustainable finance legislation from governments and the shift from voluntary guidance to mandatory measures reflecting the urgency of global climate concerns and the remaining steps that financial institution should be taking to ensure an orderly LIBOR transition by the end of 2021.

No one can predict how COVID-19 will ultimately reshape our world. We hope, however, that this collection of insights will offer a touch of clarity as industry leaders seek progress in 2021 and beyond:

Chapter 1: Accelerated Change in the Financial Institutions Sector

  1. The acceleration of digital channels: managing the fraud and cybersecurity risks
  2. Biden's China policy: No details, but several clues on approach
  3. UK sanctions legislation post-Brexit: analysis of New Statutory Instruments
  4. COVID-19 relief efforts spark litigation and investigations in the U.S.

Chapter 2: Focus

  2. Sustainable finance disclosures
  3. Remaining steps along the road to LIBOR transition
