Brendan Gleeson, group chief executive officer of White Clarke Group, summed up the findings:

To succeed in the new ecosystem, organizations must adapt fast –learning new skills, staying abreast of new technology and developing new models for the delivery of finance to avoid the threat from disruptors.”
