“Consumers have made an irreversible switch from traditional banking channels to digital banking. People not only use online banking more than branches, but see it as the preferential choice for everyday banking and are more satisfied with it than any other channel. The challenge for banks is how to prevent the shift online weakening customer relationships and undermining customer loyalty. This will become even more pressing as Open Banking looms on the horizon.”
– Rich Shepherd, Senior Financial Services Analyst
This report discusses the following key topics:
Banking in the UK has changed significantly in the last 15 years. The growth of digital channels offers consumers greater choice over how they manage their accounts and interact with their bank. Online and mobile banking provide more convenience than traditional options such as branch services, and current account holders have taken advantage of this by moving on from a reliance on branches. By moving their customers on to new, remote channels, banks have had the opportunity to reduce their branch networks and significant overheads, increasing profitability.
