Details

One thing that is certain is that financial services institutions have come to the realization that embracing technology and innovation has gone beyond a mere value-added benefit; it has become essential – not only for survival, but for future growth opportunities.

As a result of the pandemic, new habits have developed and old patterns of behavior are being abandoned. Customers who had a fondness for in-person banking in the past have now come to appreciate branchless banking as well as new, digital payment solutions.

In addition, much of the hesitation around digital transformation by financial institutions no longer exists, as the push towards greater digitization has come from regulators, staff, and customers themselves. In other words, what were previously sources of constraints have become digital transformation enablers.

To stay competitive, fundamental changes and important strategic choices in the digitalization of financial firms must take place.
