2020 Foresight: Retail Banking and Social Media - Do the Ends Justify the Expense? - New Market Report

LogoSocial media presents a valuable opportunity for retail banks. As internet access and smartphone adoption increase, a growing number of internet users are becoming involved with social networking. Companies are changing their business models and product offerings to be able to cater to the ballooning market of social media users. Banks and other financial institutions are engaging customers with social media, which is shaping up as a strong channel to promote new schemes, identify customer needs and receive feedback. Although the use of social media remains risky territory for many banks, some have started to explore opportunities in this channel and have set out many best practices examples that can act as guiding principles for other banks and financial institutions. A primary question plaguing the banking industry on the use of social media concerns return on investment (ROI). There are doubts over the credibility of social media as a key component of business models due to a lack of tools to measure quantifiable results. The potential benefits are more of qualitative in nature. Despite initial skepticism by retail banks, social media is expected to emerge as a complimentary channel, rather than replacing existing channels such as television and newspapers. Financial services companies use various channels to market products and services, and consumer opinion is now measured as an aggregation of experiences across these channels. Over the next five years, banks are expected to focus more on synergies that can be generated by social media and other key channels, rather than calculating ROI in the social landscape.

"Banking Trailblazers - Winning Strategies in Retail Banking" Now Available at Fast Market Research

LogoBuilding a 'winning' retail bank demands significant investment in three core areas: branch banking, core modernisation technology and mobile money. Allied with a long-term vision, commitment from senior management and an environment that fosters innovation, a retail bank can outsmart and outperform its competitors. The single most important attribute that unites winning banks is the expansion of branch banking because they recognise the branch is the foundation of the customer experience, and when they get this right, they can start to achieve operational excellence and grow market share. Core modernisation technology comes in second place and this requires considerable investment. For example, Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA), one of the 'winning' retail banks in the report, invested A$1.1bn ($1.18bn) in its new core banking platform. However, core modernisation technology delivers efficiencies. Already, CBA expects cost savings by the end of FY2012 because of its investment. Finally, the world's winning retail banks have harnessed innovation in contactless payments and targeted the mobile channel as a battle point between them and their competitors.
