Insights into the influence of Covid-19 on the current and post-pandemic Life Sciences & Healthcare market

The word “quarantine” is derived from the Italian word quarantena, the 40-day isolation period demanded during the Middle Ages before a ship was permitted to enter port, in order  to protect the port city from disease. Humans are social animals, and as we endure our 40 days of self-isolation and lockdown across the globe, we are starting to feel stressed and to long for some short to mid-term perspectives.

Financial Services Transformation in the Asia Pacific Region

Although the financial services sector is seeing a dramatic global shift to a fintech-based model, this situation is particularly pronounced in the Asia Pacific region, where only around one quarter of the population uses traditional banking and financial services. Accordingly, the rise of phenomena such as mobile banking services, online insurance sales and microlending represents not so much a market shift as the emergence of an entirely new market.  This new market is very large – potentially consisting of over 400 million new customers.
