Banking CIO Outlook | Monday, July 08, 2019

Figuring out the opportunities and offering something truly valuable and unique can propel new entrants in banking to great beginnings.

FREMONT, CA: The traditional banking sector is no more traditional. While the bigger, reputed players are busy transforming and digitalizing their products, services, and customer experiences, smart new entrants are also making a case for themselves. There has been a rise in the number of new entrants in the financial industry, which has led to healthy competition and a lot of innovation. The complex regulations and the large capital requirements are not making companies shy away from starting a business. However, a substantial amount of work has to go into starting and running any financial firms. Here are a few strategies to foster success.

• Deciding your Main Product

While starting, an organization must first decide the product or service that is to be its primary offering. Most of the efforts should be put into making this product or service a successful one. It will also be at the head of the whole marketing strategy. Deciding on a single product allows a company to understand its value and opportunities in the market better, leading to a successful launch for the company.

• Creating a Good Launching Pad

New entrants in this industry have to be proactive to create a community for it and its product even before the enterprise starts full-scale functioning. Ideally, a company should make efforts to develop the community well before its formal launch. This approach provides beginners with indispensable feedback that can help them tinker with products before they are made available commercially.

• Unveiling and Popularizing the Brand

Brand identity is a must for any new player entering into the financial market. A strong brand identity ensures that the audience becomes aware of the company's presence and its value increases. The audience can develop a perspective only when brand power can influence them.

• Innovating and Exploring

The incumbent banks offer many services, but in the financial industry, the scopes of coming up with something different are many. New entrants must focus on leveraging latest technologies to come up with business models that target specific segments of the society and not all of it. Exploring the market gives a good idea about the potential for new services and products.

These are some of the strategies that can help new entrants do well in the financial industry which possesses unlimited opportunities for those who know what and how to offer.
