The Future of Banking /Get the balance right

Published in White Papers on Nov 25, 2011

At a time of extreme economic and financial volatility, senior executives in banks are increasingly focusing their attention on cost-income ratios to improve profitability and send a clear message about their overall performance and long-term stability.

This Misys white paper acknowledges that cost-cutting is inevitably part of this process. However, if it has a detrimental impact on customer relationships and
retention rates, this may be a more expensive burden if it alienates clients and restricts opportunities for growth.

A bad customer experience is also highly damaging at a time when both private individuals and corporates are wise to the opportunities offered by social media to share their views with other advocates including the media, regulatory authorities and consumer protection groups.Furthermore, we argue that although the economic crisis has resulted in a more cautious approach to financial innovation, there is a clear window of opportunity for banks that migrate or evolve legacy core banking systems to deliver a new generation of services that take advantage of the latest web, mobile and social media technologies.

Such opportunities exist both in traditional retail banking for private individuals and corporates’ core and transaction banking. In addition, such services help sustain long-term relationships with existing customers as well as attracting new business.

Finally, we give examples of platform and product/service innovations that are already helping banks to exercise control over costs, add value to customer services and so improve cost-income ratios.
