Japan has a thriving financial services industry including large players and a booming e-commerce market in excess of £90 billion. However, it comes as a surprise, considering Japan’s technological strengths, that IT investments by major financial groups have historically been smaller than their global counterparts.
Chiefs of the megabanks are instructing their teams to make use of fintech. The Tokyo 2020 Olympics & Paralympics games pose a challenge to move Japan’s predominance of cash-based payment to cashless payments. Security has never been more important as incidents of cyberfraud has been on a rise in Japan. More rigorous demand by regulators for compliance and transparency creates a need for better reporting and risk management.
