New technologies, innovative financial products and services, established and new brands, innovative designs and processes all contribute to success in the competitive financial services sector.

As competition intensifies across the entire financial services industry, patents, copyrights, trade marks,trade secrets, confidential information and know-how and data rights are intrinsic to the continuing economic success of established multinationals and the growth of challenger brands alike.

Technological innovation, AI and improved processes are driving out cost and creating competitive advantage.   They call for heightened patent protection for new inventions and the protection of trade secrets and know-how.   In a world where there are minimal physical barriers to information transfer, securing interlocking multi-level registered rights at the earliest opportunity may be the only way to safeguard R&D, innovation investments and market position as well as security against attack by competitors.
