Banking has been around for centuries to encourage trade, finance, business, commerce and economic prosperity. Yet, in recent years, banking came to stand for shareholder return. And that seemed about it. Due to the singular focus on shareholder return, banks behave badly ripping off customers with unnecessary products and even falsifying account opening forms. Why has banking sunk so low and how can it reach new heights? This discussion focuses upon the new world of banking: purpose-driven, process-structured and platform-based. It's about digital banking with meaning. What does this mean for you?
