What EY can do for you

Innovation is an organization’s ability to respond to digital disruption and enable new capabilities. True innovation happens when organizations focus on specific business challenges, identify the right approaches to address them and accelerate transformation.

In today’s financial services environment, it is not enough to have a digital strategy. Financial institutions need to have a business strategy focused on thriving in a fully digital world.


Financial institutions need to hyper-innovate and learn to exist in a state of constant transformation to stay competitive in today’s markets. Practices that can accelerate innovation include:

  1. Don’t tell customers why they should choose you over the competition, show them
  2. Embrace new technology to adapt to the changing landscape
  3. Fail fast and early to get to the right answers quickly
  4. Put the customer first, without exception
  5. Act like every day is your day 1 as a startup, no matter the company size
  6. Commit to challenging assumptions along the way
  7. Continue to collaborate, connect and improve
