What has changed since the pandemic?Disruption is creating opportunities and challenges for global banks. While the risk and regulatory protection agenda remains a major focus, banks must also address financial performance and heightened customer and investor expectations, as they reshape and optimize operational and business models to deliver sustainable returns. Innovation and business-led transformation will be critical for future growth. To remain competitive and relevant, every bank must embrace disruption and strategically build a better ecosystem — not a bigger bank.The COVID-19 global pandemic will renew focus on operational resilience. Banks will need to adapt their approaches to changes in their operating model and ecosystem, which will require flexibility, ongoing communication and global regulatory coordination. At the same time, the pandemic has also accelerated digitalization and reinforced the importance of managing cyber risks.
