The Banking and financial services segment is in general under intense pressure of changes coming from the FinTech sector and their rapid innovations, from new players entering the market and bringing connections to other segments and from increasing demands of existing clients on the level and quality of provided financial services. And all of this happens while the regulation is being increased. We believe that this is the time to take advantage of the emerging opportunities rather than coping with increasing threats.
Threats and opportunities in banking
Digitization and transition of services to online
Each new generation shifts more and more to the online environment, particularly to mobile devices environment. Their behaviour and expectations change from the point of view of online operations to be performed individually or with only a little help. It is important to have appropriate services in the online environment and effectively use external online tools and partnerships. There is already a need to properly connect the online environment of bank’s distribution channels with the offline tools and operating procedures from branches, POS, call centres, etc. How to correctly set such transformation? How to correctly consolidate the tools in distribution channels?
Relationship with the customer in the environment of formation of the need
The banks are perceived as conservative institutions providing primary transaction services in their own area for servicing the customer. Customer’s attention however shifts towards the institutions understanding his/her needs and providing value-added services. How to understand information about the customer better? How to appropriately enrich these from external sources and monetise these? How to use the knowledge of the needs and formation of them to improve the relationship with the customer?
FinTech companies and PSD2 regulation
The increasing popularity of FinTech companies among customers and the speed of their innovations is undermining their established business models and distorts the relationship between the bank and the customer. On the other hand, there is strong regulation pressure and the PSD2 introduction requiring the bank and the services to open up through API towards third parties. Is this an opportunity or a threat? How to set up the cooperation with the FinTech world and to gain from the cooperation?
P2P payment systems and use of Blockchain
In the field of payment systems, the competition is still growing and the forms of processing are being improved; particularly the start of various players among them FinTech companies (PayPal), technology players (Apple, Google) as well as other segments (Orange). Besides these threats also others have appeared using new ways like P2P or technologies using blockchain. How to respond to such threats? How to use the incoming technologies including blockchain?
