Banks have been early adopters of innovation for years, and the way we communicate with them has dramatically evolved in turn. Yet there’s one technology noticeably absent from my interactions with financial services companies — and it’s arguably one of the most important and highest-volume channels: voice.

While text-based interactions have become the norm in daily life, voice remains important for brand-customer engagement.

Sept 21 (Reuters)A consulting firm for Tokyo’s Olympic bid committee paid around $370,000 to the son of Lamine Diack, once one of the world’s most powerful sports officials, around the time Japan was picked to host the 2020 Games, Kyodo News reported on Monday.

What Investors With $3.4 Trillion Are Buying During Covid

(Bloomberg) — Hotels, pipelines, convenience stores and automaker bonds are among the assets being bought by some of the world’s biggest asset managers as they look for value in a world thrown into turmoil by the coronavirus pandemic.In interviews with sovereign wealth funds, pension firms and asset managers across Asia and Europe that collectively manage about $3.4 trillion, one thing was clear: many of them are avoiding the overheated stock market.The most common outlook was one of caution.
