Digibank: the next generation of banking

I'm having this conversation about what a digital bank is all about and suddenly a light switches on. This light goes to the core of why I keep saying that digital banks are built upon digital infrastructure, and not an evolution of channels to be another one built upon existing infrastructure. The light bulb moment…

Financial Institutions Unprepared For Digital Future

My good friend Jim Marous who recently joined The Financial Brand, asked me to make a comment about this new report from Bain. It’s not a bad report and is a slight improvement on this one from McKinsey on The Rise of the Digital Bank, but it’s not as strong as what you will hear from leading digital innovators. …

Britain: leading the way in digital banking

As the author of a book called Digital Bank, a headline that reads Brits embrace digital banking cannot be ignored. Sure enough, it’s the publication of the British Banker’s Association’s report The Way We Bank Now, the second report analysing the move to phone and online banking by the great British public. This year it…

“To Branch Or Not To Branch” is the wrong debate

Over the weekend, the Chief Executive of the British Banker’s Association, Anthony Browne, announced that the traditional bank branch is dead. Writing in The Sunday Telegraph, Browne states that the halcyon days of olden banking is a misnomer.  It was far more difficult to deal with banks pre the digital era, as you were restricted…

The Digital Revolution is like Marmite for Banks

I presented at a conference in Italy the other day. It was a small crowd of CMOs from the Italian banks, who listened dutifully to the messages. The feedback forms were mainly 8, 9 and 10 out of 10s, but there were two or three that gave me 1 or 3 out of 10. Now…

Bankers are cavemen or cool? #ebaday

I've just attended EBAday for the first time in a few years, and it's an interesting conference. Like a mini-SIBOS for Europe, the major focus is on regulations, specifically the Payment Services Directive II, and the bank's response. However, in order to kick things off, the EBA (Euro Bank Association, not European Bank Authority) invited…
