Survey

Definitive Differentiators - Forging a future-proof payments model

Over the last few decades, banks have been forced to reconsider their business model for transaction services. During the era of low-interest rates, the focus shifted to transaction revenues, and while the pendulum is now pivoting back to utilising the balance sheet for revenue growth, the amount of new regulations impacting the industry is ever-increasing. New technology and market regulation have fostered innovation and new market entrants. This “perfect storm” is exposing a number of potential threats for banks, but also new opportunities to expand the share of customer wallet and time to market, and drive cost efficiency through standardization. This Finextra survey report, produced in collaboration with Tietoevry, explores the key factors driving changes to payment models for different financial institutions and how they can wield continued or differentiated success in the evolving landscape.
