Episode 2 – Neo Banks: from buzz to reality

[See previous Episode on payments solutions]

The term ‘NeoBank’ has been part of the buzzwords in 2016 in the banking sector along with Blockchain or Artificial Intelligence. And yet, it is still impossible for most people to explain the difference between a Challenger Bank and a NeoBank or an iBank or even an Online Bank.

What we know is that the banking sector is facing huge challenges with the shift in demographics and the very low customer confidence toward traditional actors. But will emerging actors be disruptive in their business models or are they (we quote) “just fancy sotware”?

We suggest that you read Burnmark’s study on Challenger Banking published last October 2016. The study shows how a new breed of technology-driven and customer-centric financial institutions, aptly named challenger banks, are bidding to transform the banking landscape as we know it.
