The Asian Banker One Big Question is a quarterly debate held as part of our effort to solve practical problems that bankers across the region are facing. Bankers will be encouraged to share key business issues and a community driven debate is organised to find a solution. Industry/subject matter experts are invited to provide their views on the topic before we open up to the floor for our audience to vote, sharing their view. At the close of the campaign, we will organise a teleconsultation session to discuss our findings and conclude the campaign.
A journey towards customer centricity: Tailor made financial services
The development of online and mobile media has also created a vast new public tribune with tremendous commercial potential for banks. These new channels provide unparalled insights into consumers' private lives, their consumption habits as well as user-experience preferences.
While much has been discussed and debated on banks' customer centricity efforts, do banks truly understand which customer segments to prioritise, and which groups deliver the most returns? How competently are banks making use of customer data in their evaluation processes? With customer wants and needs becoming increasingly diverse, the crux is to develop the right messages and services to the right customer, using the right channel and at the right time.
With increasing popularity of web and mobile applications, banks around the world are trying to leverage on the advancement of these technologies, as they attempt to more accurately target their customers, forecast their future purchases, and tailor relevant financial services accordingly. Banks' market share acquisition efforts today very much depends on delivering the best customer experience whenever and wherever the customer engage with the financial services provider.
