From biometrics to mobile banking, the pace of innovation in financial technology is accelerating faster than ever before. With consumer adoption of digital technology changing the expectations they have of service providers like financial institutions, it’s helping drive rapid change in an industry that’s remained largely the same for hundreds of years.
Speaking in an interview in the Finetics™ Studio by The Bancorp at Money20/20 in Las Vegas, The Bancorp’s CIO, Peter Chiccino, scopes out some of the newest trends in the space and shares his thoughts on where finance is headed.
“We’ve never been in a time where technology has changed so fast,” says Chiccino. “When you think about the past when it was just humans creating technology, things progressed a bit slower. Now it’s technology creating technology so things happen almost at light speed now.
“Millennials and the generation behind them really want an easy-to-use experience, they don’t want to fill out a 20-page form like we used to do, just to create a new account. It’s all about ease and simple use.”
