Evolve or be extinct

Covid-19 has triggered large-scale digital disruption for industries globally. Retail banking is no exception.

A new report by Financial Times Focus in partnership with Mambu explores what banks need to build stronger, more competitive and socially sustainable organisations for the future.

Banking revolution in real time

The social and economic impact of Covid-19 has changed customer behaviour and has made the digitisation of banking a profit-driven priority. Steady digital transformation has turned into an immediate business concern that is threatening to upend traditional banks. Transformation is now business critical, and the new survey by FT Focus reflect this shift.

Among the respondents one group of digitally advanced companies is bucking the trend. These ‘evolvers’ are taking an innovative approach to implementing a digital strategy and transforming their business processes, and their shared features may help those who want to catch up but are not sure where to start.
