Other industries, including parts of retail banking, have been revolutionised in the past few years by three distinct forces. Advances in computing power, re-working of operating processes and, just occasionally, bold rethinking of the business models themselves. Where these three forces combine, we see enormous benefits to customers.
At AGTB we want to bring these benefits to trade banking. Benefits that retail banking clients are beginning to experience with the so-called ‘challenger’ and ‘neo’ banks. Benefits that consumers experience when using today’s digital ecosystem.
The benefits empower clients with choice and provide them with the products and services they really need. A combination of legacy IT, operations and thinking within the corporate banking sector has, so far, prevented corporate clients from enjoying similar benefits.
