This is the third edition of Financial Markets, Insurance and Pensions series. It focuses on the impact of digital technologies in the areas of financial markets, insurance and pensions. Digital technologies and finance are at the core of the work of the OECD Committee on Financial Markets, and the OECD Insurance and Private Pensions Committee. The chapters in this publication are part of the work streams of these two committees. They have benefited from comments from both committees, the G20/OECD Task Force on Financial Consumer Protection, the OECD International Network on Financial Education, and the OECD Working Party on Private Pensions
Technology and digitalisation have been transforming the way in which the financial sector is operating over the past years. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the development of digital technologies in all sectors, in particular in finance, as both households and firms have increasingly relied on digital as opposed to physical services.
