PLANO, TEXAS – [August 23, 2016] – NTT DATA, Inc., a leading business and IT services provider, today released new market research for the financial services industry highlighting how financial institutions and consumers are being affected by the emergence of FinTech. The complete report, “Don’t Fear Modernizing Your Core,” found customer loyalty is declining as banks struggle to modernize their legacy core deposit systems — the foundational technologies behind the products and processes that serve their commercial and retail customers.

Key research findings include:

  • 64 percent of banks see FinTech as a threat
  • Half of US consumers, 46 percent, already have an account with a FinTech provider
  • 22 percent of consumers described innovative offerings from FinTechs as, “this is how banking should be”
  • 1 in 3 consumers would switch primary banks for better online and mobile technology
  • 70 percent of bankers do not feel their process can quickly adapt to change, yet only 15 percent of banks expect to begin a modernization effort in the next three years

 “The message from banking customers is clear: they want a better experience powered by the latest technologies and they don’t really care who is delivering it,” said Peter Olynick, senior practice lead of retail banking for NTT DATA Consulting, Inc. “Banks will lose customers and revenues because they can’t adapt to today’s changing market. And they can’t adapt if they don’t modernize their core deposit systems.”

In January 2016, NTT DATA Consulting surveyed more than 1,000 U.S. consumers and more than 100 U.S. bankers to investigate core deposit system modernization efforts at leading U.S. banks and the rising threat of consumers looking for banking alternatives.
