What the financial sector currently deals with

The challenges currently facing the financial sector are not new and have been present in this industry for years, but the emergence of COVID-19 has accentuated them and has shown the urgent need to accelerate the digital transformation in this sector.


  1. Customers at the center of the financial industry strategy
    Complaints against financial institutions have increased by 31% in the first five months of 2020 according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in the US.
