Financial markets have stabilized somewhat following a bold policy response by central banks in the West. However, it would be premature to assume the crisis is over, as the risk has shifted from the banking sector (during the GFC) to nonbank financial institutions.

Use of automated financial services such as mobile payment apps and online banking has been growing in recent years. An NRI survey found that smartphones are catalyzing changes in investment behavior also,mainly among investors younger than 50. In response to such changes, financial institutions would be well-advised to adopt business models designed to capture smartphone users as long-term customers.
