As the digital banking sector changes, transformation is being led by customers. The question is no longer if a financial institution should digitize but how quickly they can do it. To remain relevant to their clients, firms need to think backwards from how their customers wish to interact with them.

Is it possible to successfully bring together the dynamism of the start-up world with the security and stability of banking?

Should you digitize a traditional bank or launch a separate digital bank?

This is a very important topic to consider.

  • What type of operation will it be?
  • Will it replace or enhance an existing institution?
