Seizing Opportunities to Transform

While many financial services and payment executives have dealt with the fallout from the pandemic, the changing patterns of banking and payment behaviors as well as credit demand and use, and the greater risk of defaults, the convergence of the factors to consider may feel overwhelming. Over the recent months, changing consumer behaviors significantly altered how consumers transacted—including which channels they used to explore, buy, and engage—and rapidly shifted customer engagement to digital channels. Complexity and disruption are the new normal in payments, customer experience and convenience now outweigh localization in banking and commerce, and wellness initiatives are attempting to reduce financial distress.
