When an organisation has rigid operations there might be a lack of flexibility in adapting to new regulations and market trends. This creates an opportunity in the marketplace for start-up firms to emerge and deliver a new set of services. This type of firms usually has the infrastructure to quickly deploy changes in their processes much faster than established firms, thus delivering differentiated and innovative services to clients more competitively.
This is a prime reason why the FinTech organisations developed their operations, ranging from the alternative finance platforms to robo-advisors, as the end result is faster customer service appealing to new age banking customers and investors. This makes existing financial institutions to re-visit their IT infrastructure and service offering to compete effectively, or as many do lately, to collaborate to gain technological know-how and thus expanding to new markets. With such “disruptors” in place, technology allows for greater flexibility.
