The New Rules: Banking for a Post-Pandemic

The rules for the finance industry are changing and changing rapidly. Countries have often injected capital into markets and lowered interest rates to quickly stimulate economic activity when needed, but how valid are these tools in times of social distancing and COVID-19? Despite the large challenge that players in the sector face, the situation represents an equally significant opportunity to readjust the industry and implement long-needed solutions for overlooked and underserved markets in Mexico. For a better idea of what this future could or should look like, The Business Year unites key banking directors and capital fund managers to discuss their forecasts and perspectives.
