Kapronasia, a financial industry research and advisory firm based in Shanghai, has launched its Greater China financial industry advisory service covering a number of key topics in the Chinese financial services industry including trade, cash and payments. The research service is designed to give financial institutions and technology companies greater insight into one of the fastest moving markets in the world.
In addition to trade and payments, the service will cover key industry sub-segments including retail banking, capital markets and commercial banking and is designed to give subscribers a clearer picture of the trends, regulations, customer needs and technologies that are shaping the market. Executives from both financial institutions and technology vendors are expected to benefit greatly from the service.
“It is clear from talking to delegates here at Sibos in Amsterdam that trade, cash and payments are a key part of the industry’s recovery and an important part of that story is China,” said Zennon Kapron, managing director and founder of Kapronasia. “However, it can often be difficult for companies to get regular, accurate and timely insight into what is happening on-the-ground. Our new research advisory service is designed to fill that gap and give firms the insight they need to make better business and technology decisions in the Greater China market.”
