The world of Financial Services is changing like never before. The traditionally risk-averse sector, is transforming like never before. This disruption is being caused not just by technology, but by the digital world that insurers and banks today operate in.
This is not about becoming a digital bank or a digital insurer, it is about being a bank or an insurer in a digital world – a difference we believe that is often not understood.
End customers today have a never before leverage, and demand a very different level of service and engagement. These expectations have been set not by the customers’ experience with other insurance firms or banks, but by what have been broadly called the GAFAA (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon and Alibaba) firms. The customer today asks questions like:
- If I can know, to the minute, when my Uber will arrive, why can’t my insurer tell me exactly how long my insurance claim will take to be processed?
- Why can’t I design the insurance policy I would like?
- Why is my bank forcing me to go through call-centres with long wait times to have simple queries answered? That is so last century!
In addition to customer expectations being reset by the significant changes in our society, Financial Services firms are also increasingly feeling the heat from new age tech-driven competitors. These tech driven providers are capitalizing on this broad change, and are willing and able to question the basics and think through products and services ground-up. These disrupters were seen as being fringe players until recently; today they are real competition.
