MAIN CONFERENCE

Payments

Digital-only banks, also called neobanks, are expanding swiftly, leveraging cutting-edge digital technology like data analysis and AI to win over customers that are digital savvy. These challengers, spurred by consumer dissatisfaction with the incumbents are charging zero or low fees and offering faster services and better user experience, while saving the costs of running physical branches.
