The Commercial Banking line of business has never been more challenged:
- Competition is intensifying the industry is approaching an oligopoly with the top three players controlling nearly 50% of fees and deposits and enjoying significant scale benefits.
- Disruptive FinTech firms are cherry picking the most attractive profit pools.
- After years of high double digit growth deposit growth is leveling off, resulting in increased rate competition for deposits.
- Banks enjoy tremendous pricing power but deal pricing is aggressive – understanding switching costs and customer buying behavior has never been more critical to success.
- Banks face constrained investment budgets but must invest on multiple fronts.
