In today's innovation scenario, the banking sector – and especially the payment sector – is undergoing major changes. If we think of all the ways we can choose, buy and pay for a trip, a book or a meal, we realize that there are many options, and that the bank services are just one of several possibilities. There are many alternatives offered by FinTech and also BigTech companies.
Consumers have new needs that are more complex but also fragmented, they are fascinated by the speed and accessibility that new technologies provide them, they are open to new brands and loyal to new players. How can banks be competitive in this context? What are the possible future evolutions?
ING aims at becoming "the WeChat of banks": an open platform where users can take care of their digital identity, address their financial, mobility and housing needs and manage their personalized shopping experiences. Do you have a startup and want to enter the contest? Find here all the info.
