This week we suggest reading a study on searching for opportunities in the financial sector. In addition, we recommend a report on how technology is affecting the rules in the world of investment banking, and an infographic on the global digital advertising landscape.

It’s for these reasons, among others, that the biggest opportunities in the financial world revolve around the disintermediation of these banks and core financial services.
As a second reading, we propose a report by Accenture on how technology is affecting the rules in the world of investment banking. According to the company, social networking, mobile devices, big data, cloud computing, and interactive technology are changing the way we do business in all industries, particularly in investment banking, where the potential of digital technologies is still not being levereged, leaving the door open for new players.
Finally, we recommend an infographic on the global digital advertising landscape. It shows how different countries manage to understand the behavior of their audience and that more and more research is being done on the Internet when buying a product.
