They should be able to everything.Depending on the interface requirements, they suggest which technology to use.If technology is already decided which patterns to use and other things etc. Role of architect varies from organization to organization.You can further calssify them as: 1)system architect 2)Solution architect and many more. Catch somebody from iFlex and you will get more info on Financial domain.
My experience was not so good. I am working in financial domain for last 2 years and hopefully I will leave this domain next month. I found there is too much bureaucracy, just like govt jobs, but strangely I am working for top 5 banks. Most irritating thing I found is that your tech boss will be a banker with few years of IT experience. He will expect you to understand their banking business in few weeks and come with software in few months which automates everything. It is difficult to explain them anything technical. Yes after few months work will be boring,but salary will compensate it. You just have to decide your priority.
