Welcome to the Summer 2018 issue of the Novantas Review.

We are all looking forward to some pool time and burgers on the grill, but we are also looking to the future. And there’s a lot that bank executives must do to prepare for it. As uncertain as the future always is, there are a few things we can count on. Deposit betas are rising, competition is ferocious, and technology is changing the world faster than we ever expected.

In this issue, we tackle some key topics that you will face as you look to the future of banking. We guide you through some strategic choices that you will likely have to make, such as developing a thin-branch network or launching a direct bank. We also examine the significant amount of churn that will hit your workforce and provide guidance about figuring out which deposit customers are most valuable to you.

We are also introducing another new feature as part of the Review’s overhaul. “Deep Dive” will analyze timely financial topics for the banking industry. In this issue, we explore the widening LIBOR-OIS spread — from why it is happening to what it means for your business.

As always, we welcome your feedback on the Novantas Review. Feel free to reach out to Robin Sidel at with suggestions and comments.

So put on some sunscreen and start reading!

Banks Can Ease Deposit Woes By Taking Cue From Card Issuers

It’s no secret that the need for low-cost, sticky deposits is one of the most pressing issues in the industry today, particularly as interest rates are set to keep rising. The use of deposit scoring can help banks identify which customers they want to keep — and the best ways to keep them.
