• After the good years of high credit rates, which brought 60 to 70% of the retail banking net receipts, the sector had to reinvent itself to find in the 2010s new sources of growth
  • Therefore, the bank has reinvented its model by integrating insurance and its recurring commissions with a change in historical balances and significant transformations for purely insurance players
  • The digitization of customer relations, the increase in regulations and compliance, the continuous decline in other historical sources of net receipts (loan protection insurance, electronic banking, intervention costs, etc.), competition from online banks, big data, the evolution towards more sustainable consumerism, etc. imply a permanent situation of transformation and change management
  • In search of new sources of growth, the bank sector is developing new activities (particularly around real estate) and is also seeking to take advantage of its positioning as a trusted third party to offer/aggregate new services to customers by bringing together players partners
