The Future of Banking

Banking is the process of dealing with cash, credit and financial transactions, which is a safe way to store money.

Thousands of start-up companies in Fintech acquired their market share in key revenue streams, and their participating banks did not slow down and invest in Fintech’s ecosystem.

Types of Banks

Between 1980 and 2000, the banking business doubled. If you count all the assets and the securities they created, it would be almost as large as the entire U.S. gross domestic product. During that time, the profitability of banking grew even faster. Banking represented 13 per cent of all corporate profits during the late 1970s. By 2007, it represented 30 per cent of all profits. In all economic systems, banks have a leading role in planning and implementing financial policy.

A commercial bank is a type of bank that provides services such as accepting deposits, making business loans, and offering basic investment products that are operated as a business for profit.

A community bank is a depository institution that is typically locally owned and operated. Community banks tend to focus on the needs of the businesses and families where the bank holds branches and offices. Lending decisions are made by people who understand the local needs of families, businesses and farmers.

Credit unions are not-for-profit organizations that exist to serve their members. Like banks, credit unions accept deposits, make loans and provide a wide array of other financial services. But as member-owned and cooperative institutions, credit unions provide a safe place to save and borrow at reasonable rates.

An investment bank is a financial services company or corporate division that engages in advisory-based financial transactions on behalf of individuals, corporations, and governments.

A central bank is the institution that manages the currency, money supply, and interest rates of a state or formal monetary union, and oversees its commercial banking system.

The Future of Banking

Future banks will be increasingly managed by technology. In the new digital age, where people spend more time than ever before on their laptops, where retail traffic has declined, as customers no longer visit bank branches, consumers prefer banks at home comfortably or during their day, whenever they want. Financial institutions must imagine banking in the context of our daily lives, our routines, our needs, our desires, and their impact on our future.
