In the latest Medianett filmed roundtable session, we discussed how important technology is in the banking space, and what impact the industry expects it to have on its businesses in the future.
“The bigger the bank, the harder it is to get anything done,” claimed Marc Champ, managing director at Wharf Financial Services, when asked how important it was for banks to pilot tech updates.

He commented that larger banks should be leading tech, “because they have got the bigger budgets, [and] they probably have the staff numbers to be able to do it but, unfortunately, the amount of red tape they have to go through and get all these different levels of sign-off, you just can’t do it”.
“So, nothing gets done and then they miss the boat and they go to the back of the line.”
