Engagement Models

FinTechs are increasingly eroding the customer base of more traditional service providers, but instead of competing for the same market, these two operatives can leverage individual strengths to amplify a successful, combined, product offering.

“It will be necessary for us to partner with FinTechs on specific services where there is mutual benefit to do so …”
