The retail banking sector is in a state of flux driven by the arrival of open banking; the move from a transactional to customer centric focus and the rise in adoption of digital banking channels. Consumer expectations and technology advances are driving changes to the way in which customers interact and engage with their bank, and this combined with the emergence of new players in the market and the introduction of ground breaking changes in the form of Open Banking, is threatening the very heart of traditional high street banking.
Without the issues of physical buildings, traditional ways of working and legacy systems, these challenger banks are not tied into the old ways of working. Instead they can embrace lower cost digital channels, truly putting the customer at the heart of everything they do, whilst launching new propositions and services to the market much faster.
