Webinar Recording brought to you by BuyProperly Limited.

Session Overview

In a survey conducted by Business Intelligence, nearly 3/4th of the millennials indicated they visit the branch once or less per month, while 40% do not visit physical banks at all.

While often blamed for killing industries (retail, home improvement stores, beer), they are only forcing these industries to rethink the paradigm we operate in. This is changing the way we interact with these traditional institutions. New Apps will come out that will allow individuals to create portfolios that mimic those of hedge funds and mutual funds, do banking and stock trading and now even buy real estate online.

View our webinar recording with Mahima Poddar and Pouya Zangeneh as they talk about the questions below:

  • Do you believe challenger banks, neo banks, fintechs have been successfully able to capture share from traditional institutions, especially in the context of millennials and GenZ
  • What in your opinion are the top things millennials/Gen Z look for when choosing Financial Institutions?
  • What are some of the things your bank/institution is currently doing/ offering that will get millennials/ genZ excited? What are the differentiators?
  • With open banking coming (hopefully the stalled work of the open banking task force will restart soon) – how do you see the landscape evolving for fintechs/ challengers and incumbents.
  • Is there scope for startups and Fintechs to work with traditional institutions and co-exist for mutual benefits ? Will this destroy millennial trust in fintechs and genx/ older generations in traditional institutions or will it strengthen?
