Finance and Computing are linked in a symbiotic relationship, in this paper this relationship and its implications for both finance and computing will be explored. The outcome of the exploration is a suggested agenda for the development of financial computing, which will support a broad view of financial innovation. This agenda involves the support and enhancement of standards setting exercises and the adoption of services computing as the approach for a wide range of process innovation.
