REINVENTING #FINSERV FOR THE DIGITAL WORLD

The financial and banking industry’s boundaries are being redrawn daily by new technologies, raised expectations from digitally-savvy customers and increased competition from new entrants ranging from startups to retailers, and even professional services firms.

Fundamental as these changes are, they are just the beginning. When regulations like PSD2 and GDPR start to bite, or the big tech players jump in to take a slice of the market, how will your business respond?

It is not enough to roll out a new customer-facing app or buy some startup and hope for the best. Digital transformation is a truly strategic issue, requiring incumbents to rethink their internal structure, business practice, cultural make-up and leadership models to win long-term. But how? 

See below for some starting points to help you adapt and succeed in the new normal – but if your needs are different, please get in touch to discuss. 

 

TYPICAL CHALLENGES

  • Disconnected customer touchpoints
  • Competition from new digital players
