Tech giants are moving into banking, leveraging their existing customer base and strong tech stack. Looking outside fee-income, these firms have focused instead on data acquisition, cross-selling opportunities and ways to add value to core business models. Their new tech stacks, which are open and API-based, are providing a source of competitive advantage. Most are experimenting with new tech to provide greater efficiencies in delivery and greater customer experiences.
