SECTOR FOREWORD Financial Services Thanks to the financial services sector, money does, indeed, make the world go round. South Africa is one of the most promising emerging markets in the world today, and boasts a vibrant financial services sector. It is acknowledged that emerging markets are becoming increasingly important sources of growth for financial services entities in mature economies, which expand their businesses and investments to these markets. Amid such positive outlooks, the sector is one that has to thrive on the back of technological advances which have resulted in many financial crimes. According to PricewaterhouseCoopers cybercrime risk appears to be increasing as about 45% of financial services organisations have suffered economic crime, compared to only 34% across all other industries. KPMG would like to congratulate the torch bearers in this industry. It is thanks to their endeavours that South Africa has one of the most solid financial services sector in Africa and the world.
