WSBI Annual Meetings 2016

por CECA

Banking in the 21st Century

The WSBI Annual Meetings “Banking in the 21st Century” will be hosted by the Government Savings Bank, the WSBI member in Thailand.

In addition to the 23rd General Assembly, there will be a conference with a plenary session and two working sessions. One of them will focus on how technology – digitisation and innovation – can help banks to improve the customer experience. The other will address the change in culture and skills that is required to operate effectively in the current environment.

The WSBI Annual meetings 2016 will be a major occasion to network with peers and demonstrate the cohesion and dynamism of the worldwide savings and retail banking community.

The “New NORMAL” for the financial services industry is characterised by a fast moving digital revolution and disruption by new market entrants within an environment characterized by a Tsunami of international regulation. All of these factors are challenging the business models and revenue streams of banks. At the same time customer expectations are changing in line with the diffusion of “technological innovations” which have become part of the fabric of everyday life in a hyper-connected world. An additional challenge is how to strike the balance between consumer protection and using in-house and big data to improve the customer experience on all customer touch points in an omni-channel approach. Linked with this is the big threat of cyber security, which is one of the largest challenges that banks, governments and other industries have to tackle today.

Digitisation changes the way processes are carried out and changes our interaction with other human beings and objects. It provides more choices and ways and means to connect with and create deeper client relationships. Digitisation is thus also a catalyst for social innovation, and challenges how creating value for society is organised. It is of course also having a profound impact on the organisation and internal culture of the bank. In order to face the new market challenges caused by digitisation and innovation, banks need to transform to an agile organisation with an emphasis on culture, skills leadership and process rather than technology.
