The technology buyer in capital markets is getting inundated with marketing about the latest hot trend in fintech: Artificial Intelligence (AI). Still reeling from the blockchain onslaught of the last few years, product managers, strategists and others responsible for evaluating and implementing technology are understandably wondering how much of the AI hype is just noise, and how much is legitimately game-changing.

The AI evaluation cycle may be different than the blockchain cycle however. In 2014 and 2015, there were both hopes and fears that blockchain would overturn the power structure in capital markets, that technology would take over the roles of banks and central utilities and that bankers would become redundant. This has not happened. Rather, blockchain has become another powerful tool in the technical tool-kit, absorbed into the mainstream technology stack. AI will follow blockchain in some areas but in others may well have more profound consequences.

This Fintech Capital Markets report looks at the core concepts of AI, and examines the ways that AI could enhance – and potentially disrupt – capital markets. This report should be read by product managers and others involved in technology strategy within capital markets firms.

This report is 16 pages with three exhibits.
