Technology ignites our business
-Technology is hard wired into everything we do. In fact, in many of our businesses, Technology is our product. We sell technology solutions to clients and we have some incredible talent across our 14 global technology hubs and additional strategic locations around the world who help us to do that
Last year we spent $9.5 billion on technology, of which approximately $3 billion is dedicated toward new initiatives. That rivals some of the biggest names in Tech! In 2016 we spent $600 million on emerging fintech solutions – which included building and improving digital and mobile services and partnering with fintech companies
Our technology helps everyone from consumers to multinational corporate clients, sovereign wealth funds and those making multibillion dollar cross border payments. We build some of the largest, most highly used consumer banking and professional interfaces. Did you know that those interfaces are used by 50% of households in the US? Or that our Investment Bank securely processes $5 trillion in payments every day? Or that our Treasury Services business supports approximately 80% of the global Fortune 500
Opportunities around the Globe:
We have our 14 Global Technology Hubs and additional strategic locations around the world – and while they may be far apart geographically, they are all part of one unified team!
We based our 14 Global Technology Hubs and additional strategic locations in these locations based on their access to top technology talent, their proximity to our businesses and our ability to offer employees robust career development opportunities.
