4 digital banks paving the way for digital transformation in South Africa
By Edlyn Cardoza
With the ease of mobile banking, we hardly go into a bank branch, and the results have become a big win for consumers who want banking services and not just banks. Consumers and financial institutions are deftly adapting to the rising demands of a tech-accelerated and pandemic-impacted world, which have presented an array of solutions, ideas, and opportunities for the banking sector’s difficulties.
The future of banking is digital, connected, contextual, and customer-first. Through meticulously selected partnerships and technology, digital banks are upgrading their banking strategy to match how individuals and small business customers manage everyday banking tasks.
The digital transformations have paved the way for the birth of digital banks in Africa, forming the springboard for what 2023 will unfold. Here are 4 digital banks setting their mark to revolutionise banking in South Africa:
