RETAIL AND CORPORATE BANKING
Digital disruptions are forcing banks to rethink operating models. Today, corporate banking customers demand real-time interaction, service immediacy, and transparency. They want an experience on par with that of Uber or Amazon in corporate banking. Start-ups like TransferWise and Simple Tax have identified this need in retail banking, providing greater convenience in conducting transactions. The implementation of regulatory directives like PSD2 will result in banks competing with everyone offering commercial lending, financial services, and banking solutions.
With their dominance under threat, retail banking and corporate banking and commercial lending organizations are embarking on a trajectory for change.
