LSE IDEAS Visiting Professor in Practice, Lutfey Siddiqi, has been invited to co-curate the global Banking and Capital Markets Transformation Map for the World Economic Forum this year.

The first cut of the transformation map has now been released and identifies key trends shaping how banks manage shocks while ensuring stability. It can be found here.

In addition, this World Economic Forum blogpost looks at 5 trends which are shaping the banking and capital markets sector which is currently in turmoil. It details how financial institutions must now navigate issues such as inflationary pressures, rapid normalization of monetary policies and growing fragmentation.

The World Economic Forum hosts a network of “systems maps” across a range of interrelated topics, tracing linkages amongst them and identifying pathways of transformation – constructed in partnership with universities, think tanks, civil society, and international organizations. These maps in turn form the basis for strategic dialogue amongst private and public sector stakeholders, including at the annual meeting in Davos.

You can find out more about what a Transformation Map is on the World Economic Forum website.
