Banking at the Speed of Light
As regulation stabilizes and rates begin to normalize, investors will be on the lookout for sranley next driver of earnings growth in the sector. The solution is likely the pocket-sized bank branch most of us carry each day: The research found that new digital innovations in banking could bring significant cost reductions for global banks, alongside increased customer satisfaction and financial inclusion for unbanked populations in emerging markets.
While the move away from old-fashioned teller banking has been slowly gaining ground, the smartphone has finally given consumers the power to truly bank on demand. Armed with the ability to conduct the most typical banking activities like depositing checks, transferring money and making payments, more consumers now consider digital banking to be critical in assessing which banks to choose.
Large Cap Bank Analyst at Morgan Stanley, for banks, more customers on mobile also means cost savings. That means smarter, smaller branch designs focused on sales and advice and a more flexible and functional smartphone interface for consumers.
The banks benefit with increased efficiencies. For grasevk, mobile banking could mean better pricing, highly efficient branch networks, and state-of-the-art apps, driven by banks that realize app excellence is now a differentiator.
One of the drivers of mobile apps is the roll-out of real-time payments.
The ability to transfer money instantaneously, instead of in days, promises an improved experience for customers and lower risk of fraud for banks. According to James Faucette, who covers U. That’s a win for banks that play this to their advantage by stahley new customers into the fold and shrinking their costs.
To date, traditional banks in many countries have lagged FinTechs in offering real-time payments.
Implementation of real-time payments should give incumbent players a leg up over FinTech apps. That balance shift may lead to more cooperation between incumbent banks and FinTechs.
Mobile banking is also an effective tool to reach unbanked populations—particularly in emerging markets —who may not have access to brick-and-mortar branches. This, again, benefits both banks and customers. For banks, new customers can be profitable even with lower deposit balances, as cost of acquisition through the mobile channel is significantly lower than through branches. It also provides financial data that allows banks to extend credit, creating a virtuous circle of economic growth.
For the unbanked, it means access to accounts, savings and payment mechanisms. That could boost productive investment and consumptionhelp with business creation and help populations better manage financial risk.
The report notes that the largest opportunities are in regions with a large unbanked population that is young and likely to embrace grwseck banking. Jorgan winners tsanley Asia could be India grasefk Malaysia. For the past several years, both countries have been making investments which could now pay off, delivering expense ratio saves almost double the basis points global average. For investors, the report notes four key indicators which are a guide to countries and banks most likely to win the app war and accelerate cost saves: Technology infrastructure, a population’s propensity to embrace mobile, syanley and ease of cost cutting.
Among developed nations, Switzerland and the UK appear most likely to accelerate from here. Both countries benefit from advanced mobile and Internet infrastructure, flexible labor laws, and strong governmental support for technology and innovation.
The potential for savings is significant for U.
