Session Description

As the credit crisis of 2008 unfolds into a full-blown recession impacting major economies across the world, retail bankers are rethinking on the age-old operating models that are becoming a burden in the face of challenges like severe liquidity crunch, rising delinquencies, government interventions, and high cost structure. The industry needs to reinvent and adopt operating models that enable flexibility while ensuring focus on customer relationships and prudent risk management. In this session, Infosys BPO experts discuss how direct banking models, shared service utilities across DDA processing, lending and payments, and non-core functions such as procurement and F&A are all set to redefine the retail banking landscape.
