A Survival Strategy for Smaller Banks
by Kevin Tynan, Liberty Bank for Savings
 
Key concepts Kevin reviews:
  • We're losing the battle to keep customers. Here's what we can do about it.
  • When speed and convenience is king, FIs are relegated to the position of financial utilities, generic banking monoliths existing only to process transactions and facilitate purchases.
  • Bank attempts to stem customer attrition are not working.
  • Their only solution is niche banking, a slate of limited services focused around a narrow customer segment where they can reign as market leaders.
