Conservatism, Stability, and Lower Returns—The New Norm for the Industry?

Executive Summary

The landscape of the investment banking industry has changed significantly since the financial crisis. The high-growth industry, half a decade ago, is now transformed to a single-digit or a stagnant growth industry. Investment banks that are claimed "too big to fail" are facing litigation issues that transfer into huge costs affecting profitability. Most investment banks have either already announced or are scheduled to announce their new business strategies or operating models that would make the organization leaner, more productive, and profitable. Several mergers, acquisitions, and spin-off transactions may take place in the next three years (2014 to 2017) as a result of the strategic initiatives taken by investment banks to discard their non-core business, while focusing and developing their core strengths.
As a result of widespread and unavoidable cost-saving measures, the investment banking industry has taken to adopting more efficient technology that reduces turnaround time, conservative risk management practices, caps on salaries of investment banking professionals, and downsizing of human resources. Basel III, the Dodd Frank Act, and other regulations have also impacted the capital base and other operating metrics of the investment banking industry as companies would have to incur additional costs to comply with these regulations.
All of the aforementioned factors have a huge impact on the financial profitability, stability, and strength of the investment banking industry. This research studies the financial and risk management trend with respect to ratio analysis that encompasses profitability, solvency, liquidity, and capital management ratios. A snapshot of ratio analysis for the financial year 2012 is presented in the next slide.
The global investment banking industry is expected to grow at xx% in 2014, reaching a total market size of $xx billion. North American investment banks would face a flat growth period but would still remain profitable, while European investment banks would struggle to remain stable and profitable. Asia-Pacific investment banks would continue to remain profitable but may be considered to be more risky than investment banks in Latin America and the Caribbean that are more stable, risk averse, and profitable. Investment banks in Africa and the Middle East are expected to remain profitable with high growth and increasing competition in 2014.

Key Study Objectives Include:

To analyze companies in the investment banking industry based on key financial metrics and financial ratios.
To identify key performance drivers and restraints that impact the current industry situation and develop an outlook for 2014.
To identify the best performers in the industry based on financial performance between 2007 and 2013 (first half).
To identify, compare, and assess regions/countries that are current and potential hubs of investment banking activity.
To identify the best practices of top performers and do a competitor analysis (by region) based on financial parameters.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...

The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated.

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
