Stuart Hall, Digital Practice Lead, iBe TSE commented: “Financial services isn’t being disrupted - the disruption has already happened. The rules have been rewritten and the focus is now on the industry and how it responds. What’s clear is that there is no way back. We now live in a digital state and banks need to reassess their vast operating models in order to identify where they want to compete and really focus on making these chosen products and services relevant for their customers.
“Digital technologies have a large role to play in helping banks recapture the personal and relevant relationships that today’s consumers crave. Operating in a complex and multi-faceted environment means that this change won’t happen overnight, but I believe iBe TSE is well placed to help banks align their vision of the future with the investments they need to make today in order for it to become a reality. Banks have got the data and the opportunity, our job is to help them seize it.”

What they require is a partner that has the experience and expertise to help them de-risk digital investment and pioneer a new era of banking. Stuart’s experience in connecting banks with the FinTechs, delivering projects that have saved the organisations in question millions and forged new ways of working will be invaluable.
