What You Should Know About Design in Finance

Great design makes financial content stand out. After the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) came into force, the spotlight has been on the design, publication and distribution of research. Increasing data and more data-visualisation platforms and software tools are reshaping design.

Great design is imagination and perspicacity in action. Modern tools can make presentations and publications truly interactive and dynamic.

Key Takeaways

  1. Great design can be a differentiator
  2. Modern tools can make content interactive and dynamic
  3. It makes economic sense to move design work to firms that understand both design and finance
