How to leverage Data & AI to become data-driven in the Finance Industry

The use of data in banking is not new: from transactions and financial indicators, to risk models: data always played a central role in the sector and institutions leveraging data more effectively had an edge against the competition.

Now, thanks to data science and AI, there are even more possibilities to build entire business models around data.

From building recommenders for financial instruments, to generating leads for bonds sales or your working capital solutions, to finding anomalous correspondent banking transfers: the possibilities are endless!

How can you get started?
