The British Bankers’ Association released their The Way We Bank annual report last Thursday. It was interesting. Here are the key highlights:
New technology is transforming the way that we handle our finances, from apps which turn our mobiles into a bank branch, to text alerts, cheque-imaging, biometric identification and contactless cards. ‘Banks on wheels’ physical mobile branches are helping some customers in rural communities get better bank access. These changes have empowered customers in the way they choose to manage their finances.
Greater choice in communication is also creating new, easier and faster interactions between customers and their banks. People can now access a range of services on their sofa, on the go or at work.
These innovations are helping us to manage our finances more easily. Whether we want to visit our local bank branch, use a mobile or internet-bank, there are more ways we can now choose to access and manage our money than ever before.
