The Highlights of the Fireside Chat

  • “10 years ago, digital transformation was not a topic on the business side. In the last 3 to 5 years, new challengers have pushed the transformation agenda in most banks”.
  • “Everything that is transaction-oriented is going more and more digital. Everything where you need some kind of advice, whether that be on the wealth management side or around real estate and the like, people go to a customer relationship manager”
  • “We always said digital transformation is not about blinking apps and shiny online solutions, especially if you have very old legacy systems and processes like any European Union bank has.”
