These challenger banks will fuel increased competition in the industry, forcing traditional financial institutions to improve their digital offerings and extend their reach to fend off these disruptors.

"2008 financial crisis left banks and credit unions at a disadvantage with credit challenged consumers. This, combined with the emergence of online lending technology and streamlined lending processes — made room for alternative lenders to thrive in this environment." According to Capgemini’s report, “these non-traditional lenders use technology-based algorithms and software integrations to assess credit profiles of customers and are also leveraging alternative data such as social media photos and check-ins, GPS data, e-commerce and online purchases, mobile data, and bill payments.”

Banking providers will focus on a few key use cases and technologies where customer-first design is key, like account opening and augmented reality.
