Genome’s forecast for the banking industry is out
Genome’s article on what the second half of 2020 might hold for the banking industry became one of the most significant events this month. In his article for the IBS Intelligence, Genome’s COO Daumantas Barauskas covered how the COVID-19 pandemic influenced the overall financial industry and banking sector and what challenges the financial institutions had to face.
The second part of his article was dedicated to the changes expected to occur within the payments industry later this year and in the future. Our COO also gave banks and TPPs advice on how to survive the crisis. We highly recommend you read the full article, as the current situation changes the way many sectors operate, and you better be ready for it.
We also post infographics relevant to this article and other banking statistics on Genome’s Facebook page to keep up with the latest trends in the industry. If you’re also interested in such information, feel free to discuss it in our comment section.
That’s it for this month in review, but make sure you follow Genome’s latest news, as we have exciting updates coming in the future. Meanwhile, our team continues working on the improvement of Genome’s services and always awaits your feedback, which you can leave in an online support chat in the bottom right corner of Genome’s website.
