Navigating the impact of COVID-19

Winning in the digital economy

The banking industry has never seen more disruption—new, innovative challengers and advanced technologies are changing market structure and taking a bite out of revenues. In fact, 17 percent of industry players that entered banking over the last 13 years have grabbed one-third of revenue growth in Europe. For incumbents, the time to act is now.

Simply becoming a digitally better version of themselves isn’t enough to turn the tide. Like their competitors, banks need to become more relevant and harness digital to drive growth, they must rethink their “North Star” business models and be bold in reorienting their organizations—or they risk being left behind as the industry changes around them.

That’s where Accenture Banking comes in. Whether we're helping modernize core banking operations, turn a mobile banking experience into a social one, or reinvent payment and credit models, our banking consulting services empower clients with data-driven insights and the right tools to adopt a mindset fit for today's—and tomorrow’s—digital landscape.

The Open Banking revolution is here

Technology + regulations are unlocking the banking value chain and how a bank acts now will shape its future to lose or win.

Open Banking is evolving the industry toward hyper-relevant, platform-based distribution and enabling banks to expand their ecosystems and extend their reach. Those that treat it as an opportunity vs. a threat will position themselves for a thriving, open, digital future.
