Solutions for Industry Financial Services

Address sustainability, regulations, and change in a shifting industry


Overcome the biggest problems in your industry

Tightening security, compliance issues, remote working, and more regulations across the financial services markets mean that organizations need to find more efficient ways to operate.


With the industry facing higher complexity, Innovation_360 provides a simple, intuitive platform that better prepares you for the future.


CEO priorities for the financial services industry focus on regulatory compliance, ESG, business expansion, and cost management. Wazoku can help you innovate to overcome these issues as doing nothing is not an option: become more agile by using an innovation management platform to better align your outcomes to your strategic goals.

Overcome the biggest problems in your industry

Connect the disconnected to supercharge your success

Having a one-off idea that solves a single issue will never deliver long-term change. To drive real value from your innovation activities, everything needs to be linked.


Building these connections without a purpose-built platform is time-consuming and costly – Innovation_360 makes this process easy for Financial Services organizations.

Connect the disconnected to supercharge your success

Old Mutual’s Mass & Foundation Cluster used Wazoku to turn an annual ideas summit into an always-on capability. The digital transformation of this shift has brought a lasting effect to the number of ideas and amount of collaboration.


Innovation_360 has since been adopted through a number of Old Mutual Group’s extended business units. Change your outlook on innovation from one-off lightbulb moments to a system of continuous idea collection and use.
