Future of Banking

What is the future of banking and how does it depend on UX design?

This is a hypothetical question. To define the future of banking, we need to analyze the current trends in the financial industry. There are multiple and dramatic speculations on what awaits the banking sector in the next decade, but, from a customer’s perspective the only answer to "Is digital banking the future?" is "Yes.", because it is clear for everyone that our future will be digital, cashless and personalized. 

Instead of asking "Why digital banking is the future?" we have to admit that the future of banking technology is already here, and we can see more and more disruptive solutions from Fintechs. Open banking topples the monopoly of banks and gives Fintechs access to customer data across the whole industry. This will generate a huge amount of Big Data that will be utilized by highly skilled financial AI designers. Such future artificial intelligence in banking will deliver personalized solutions, offers and suggestions to customers helping to manage their finances on a new level.

There is no separate future of business or  community banking, or even a future of transaction banking, because the future of banking in general will rely heavily on the digital experience provided to its customers. This will result in huge competition, global delivery and thousands of customized digital initiatives in banking. We are looking at a world of endless opportunities due to disruptive banking technology, a tough digital world ruled by customers.
