With governments across the APAC region placing physical restrictions on consumers, significant changes in channel usage are expected, primarily from branches to telephone and digital banking. Although the majority of customers that bank with the large APAC regionals prefer to use digital channels for common banking tasks, there is a significant difference between the top and bottom.
