How Big of a Threat is Amazon and E-Commerce to Retail?

Amazon. What can we say? The company made it possible to buy virtually anything without leaving your home.
Amazon keeps making it easier to use its services. It introduced buying with only “1-click,” the push of a “Dash Button” to reorder your favorite items, and a call from the other side of the room – “Hey Alexa…order me…”
Now it has its clutches on food with the acquisition of Whole Foods recently closing in addition to its already established grocery delivery service. Consumers can even hire local cleaning or landscaping services through Amazon.
The Blue Vault Summit could not have been more perfectly timed. This gathering of the Broker Dealer and Sponsor communities provided insightful and open discussion from several vantage points. These conversations are paramount, especially in a time of significant regulatory change.
