Retail banking trends in Canada
Canada will soon be exposed to open banking regulations that will fragment traditional retail asset and liability gatherings. Open banking refers to common interfaces among banks and third parties to facilitate more competition and also create new business opportunities. Although retail banking companies had sought a vertical approach that offers services from top to bottom over several decades, now several new entrants in retail banking want to be ‘horizontal’ and dominate an attractive specialty.
As global companies seek to make their products stand out in an increasingly crowded marketplace, innovation has earned a place on the CEO agenda.

Rising interest rates
Interest rates are gradually rising from historic lows and consumers are soon bound to be challenged by debt levels. The retail banking industry will reflect the changing environment with an increased focus on the impact of rising interest rates, transparency in lending, and innovative new value propositions. The continuing rise in rates may result in personal loan offers to decline, however lending solutions such as installment loans and point-of-sale financing will shift the market towards time-sensitive credit sources.
Innovation is vital for retail banking companies to effectively meet consumer demands. The financial services industry in Canada largely revolves around the digital age and rising consumer expectations of convenient and frictionless digital access. As a greater number of consumers seek streamlined solutions, retail banking companies in Canada will soon shift their focus to providing ‘one-stop-shops’ that bring both products and services on a single platform.
