Banks and credit unions need to create a culture of compliance in the organization and introduce formal structures and compliance systems to address regulatory compliance.

Fremont, CA: The financial services market has undergone technological changes that have led to enhanced performance and industry innovations. Fintech startups are also transforming the market with user-focused solutions which are not obstructed by legacy platforms.

Customers now have particular expectations and demands, such as improved experiences, enhanced services, and higher value for money. Additionally, regulators want more from the industry and have adopted innovative solutions that have changed the way they collect and analyze data.

Here are four challenges in the financial industry:

Keeping Up with Technology

Financial firms need to invest in innovative technology such as robotics and other automation solutions to enhance productivity, reduce cost in operations, risk management, and compliance. They also need to update their technology platforms, and data storage to integrate big data solutions like AI-powered customer support assistants as well as connect platforms to offer an improved, user-friendly experience across the internet, mobile and physical locations.

Customer Expectations

Today, customers demand more personalization and service from their banking experience because this new customer demographic has a better understanding of technology. Thus, a hybrid banking model that incorporated the digital experience into traditional bank branches is required to satisfy both the older and younger generation.

Cybersecurity Risks

Financial institutions are often the primary targets for data breached, malware attacks, fraud, and other cybercrimes due to the sensitive data it stores. These attacks cost millions of dollars for financial companies. Thus, it is essential that they invest in the latest and innovative solutions with robust security measures.

Regulations

Regulatory compliance is a big issue in the fintech sector. Banks receive extra cost and risks to stay up to date with the latest regulatory fluctuations and utilize tools needed to meet the requirements.

Banks and credit unions need to create a culture of compliance in the organization and introduce formal structures and compliance systems to address regulatory compliance.
