Factors Affecting Growth in the Banking Sector
Despite the growing risks and regulations in the banking sector, leading organizations are looking for possible ways to improve financial performance and further optimize their businesses. The banking sector is highly fragmented, comprising of segments ranging from retail banking, corporate and investment banking, and wealth management. With the rising per capita income, the global banking sector witnessed impressive growth in Europe – accounting for 43% of the global market share. While the banking sector is witnessing a promising growth, organizations are focusing on improving their asset quality. The growth of the banking sector relies on factors such as:
- Rising customer expectations: With the recent shift toward the customer-centric environment, the customers are more-informed, and banks are facing pressure to deliver the level of service that the consumers are demanding. Moreover, with the rising innovations, the banks are more concerned about staying relevant and updated on the technologies and offer agility and convenience in their transaction processes.
- Regulatory pressures: The regulations in the banking sectors are increasing, and banks are witnessing regulatory pressures to allocate a majority of their budgets towards being compliant. Moreover, with the increasing level of competition, leading organizations should focus on building systems and processes to go on par with the service-level requirements.
