While retail banking has quickly adapted to digital environment and incorporated the latest technologies, it is not the same for corporate and commercial banking. As an increasing number of consumers turn directly to Fintechs for standalone products such as low-cost international transfers and supply-chain financing solutions, corporate banking is facing competition like never before. In order to stay ahead of this competition, it has become vital for corporate banks to transform digitally.
Moreover, as greater number of tech-savvy millennials join the workforce, their expectations with the bank’s services and experience are also evolving. Akin to retail banking, corporate banking customers are also expecting quick, cheap and convenient banking services. The need for corporate banks to embrace digital solutions has never been greater.
Wissam Khoury, Managing Director for the Middle East and Africa at Finastra said, “It’s an exciting time to be part of the New Age Banking Summit here in Qatar, as the financial landscape in the Middle East shifts towards a digital and open banking architecture. Our platform for open innovation, FusionFabric.cloud brings together key players of the financial services ecosystem, from Fintechs and developers to consultants, enabling retail and corporate banks to open up APIs, collaborate to innovate and get ahead in the digital transformation journey.
