Increased collaboration between banks, fintechs, partners, investors, regulators, employees, and consumers, is paving the way for a new sharing economy. What will the hyperconnected corporate banking ecosystem look like and how will banks adapt? Download the paper to find out.
Banks are under pressure to adhere to multiregional regulation to keep up with consumer demand for a borderless ecosystem. The large, longstanding corporates want to scale, leverage data, manage risk; the smaller newer ones are in a “tearing hurry to plant their flag in every country,” Tapodyuti Bose, Global Head of Channel Services, Trade and Treasury Services, Citi, says.
Increasingly proactive treasurers want a more bespoke service with financial and physical supply chains integrated and advice from their bank on what developments such as real-time payments mean for them.
“We need to develop very effective interface channels with our customers, not just retail, but corporates,” says Sebastien Rozes, Head of Corporate Banking, EMEA, MUFG.
The paper explores what banks’ options are in responding to these pressing needs, from APIs to AI and the distribution of some of the financing on their books.
