Digital banking is shifting from a peripheral service to a central element of financial institution’s customer engagement. That shift has been ongoing for years, but the global pandemic has accelerated it. Expect more customers to abandon in-branch interactions and go completely virtual. Financial executives believe that digital banking will remain dominant even after public health restrictions wane. Fintech innovation will make customers comfortable with the online experience, and many banks are rethinking their physical strategy to reduce costs and drive greater efficiency.
