Bank 2.0
Brett King’s new book, ‘BANK 2.0 – How customer behavior and technology will change the future of financial services’, exposes the massive flaws in the retail banking system due to dramatic shifts that have taken place in customer behavior. The Bank 2.0 Keynote presentation explores the forces that will shape the way we interact, pay and trade in the 21st Century.

Brett King believes, that “Institutions who hold on to the belief that physical branches remain at the core of what the brand does, will not easily adapt easily to the customer of tomorrow who rarely visits a branch, or the customer who sees no need for an over-the-counter transaction with cash or checks. Those who still classify the Internet, ATM and Mobile phones as “‘alternative”’ channels will be playing catch up for the next decade, while intermediaries will increasingly capture niche service opportunities,”

Brett King built the research and methodologies for BANK 2.0 over 10 years working with some of the biggest names in the business including HSBC, Citibank, Standard Chartered, EmiratesNBD,BNP Paribas, UBS and others.
