According to a new study by Simon-Kucher & Partners, only 5% of neo-banks have managed to break even or record a profit, despite serving nearly a billion customer accounts together.

The global strategy and marketing consultancy has released its Global Neobanking Radar to track and rank nearly 400 digital and online banking companies around the world based on their potential for sustainable growth.

Simon-Kucher conducted an analysis of 25 of the world’s largest neo-banks and found that only two achieved profitability. The majority earn less than $30 in annual revenue per client.

The results were presented in a white paper, “The Future of Neobanking: How Can Neobanks Unlock Profitable Growth?”, which is available on the consulting firm’s website.

Christopher Stegmeier, Senior Partner at Simon-Kucher, said: “Going from ‘getting accessible’ to ‘getting rich’ requires a drastic shift in mindset that can be difficult to orchestrate.”

Neo-banks began to emerge about a decade ago, aiming to build digital-only relationships with digitally savvy customers. In 2020, 94 new banks in this field entered the global market, but only 59 new launches were registered last year.

Research has also found that in the United States, fewer than “a handful” of the top 85 neo-banks in the country have broken even, and many are losing up to $140 per customer per year.

Stegmeier added: “It’s critical that these digital disruptors make that leap, especially as [some] are approaching their sixth and seventh year of operation. The risk of failure increases exponentially at this stage if the business does not even break even.

Digital subsidiaries launched by large financial services groups or incumbent banks as new ventures now account for one in three neo-bank launches, according to the consultancy.

In an article for Banking Exchange in 2020, Andrew Steele of Activant Capital highlighted similar data showing that neo-bank business models on average involved spending “a dollar to recover fifty cents”.

Despite these challenges, research firm BAI reported in April this year that neo-banks are increasingly attracting small business customers.

Bank of America (NYSE: BAC) is well positioned to take advantage of rising interest rates and market volatility. In this clip from “The Rank” on Motley Fool Live, recorded on April 25Motley Fool contributor Matt Frankel explains why Bank of America is his No. 1 choice.

10 stocks we like better than Bank of America

When our award-winning team of analysts have stock advice, it can pay to listen. After all, the newsletter they’ve been putting out for over a decade, Motley Fool Equity Advisortripled the market.*

They have just revealed what they believe to be the ten best stocks for investors to buy now…and Bank of America was not one of them! That’s right – they think these 10 stocks are even better buys.

* Portfolio Advisor Returns as of April 7, 2022

Matt Frankel: It is the largest deposit bank. Over $3 trillion in assets on its balance sheet. Big operation. Very set up to be a good beneficiary of interest rates. Now it’s the same American bank (NYSE:USB). Bank of America, they have about $2 trillion in corporate deposits on their balance sheet. Of these, $815 billion earns no interest. So, as Bank of America’s interest rates go up, because it can charge more for car loans, mortgages, etc., it pays nothing on those deposits. So his margin grows like that. Let me show you very quickly, and then we’ll go to our last question. In this slide, the thing to pay attention to is on this graph, the net interest yield. That’s the bank’s profit margin on this bottom graph. The last thing in that gray box, where it says interest rate sensitivity, a basis point of 100, which means a 1% shift in the yield curve, should translate to 5 $.4 billion in additional net interest income over 12 months. Now imagine if interest rates increase by 2%, 3%, 4%. You can see how this could be a big plus for the bank’s bottom line. It’s a bank that’s well organized to take advantage of rising interest rates, rising inflation, and it has this arm of investment banking that takes advantage of market volatility, which is one of the main reasons I ranked it #1 in mine. And it came out #1 for all of us.

News banks, fake banks and dubious bank | The Guardian Nigeria News https://smallbiz3000.com/news-banks-fake-banks-and-dubious-bank-the-guardian-nigeria-news/ Tue, 10 May 2022 03:37:00 +0000 https://smallbiz3000.com/news-banks-fake-banks-and-dubious-bank-the-guardian-nigeria-news/ A seemingly innocuous ‘war’ has been raging in the Nigerian financial services space for some time now: the ‘war’ to defeat the activities of mostly unlicensed and unapproved ‘banks’ of various hues that have virtually invaded the banking sector.

A seemingly innocuous ‘war’ has been raging in the Nigerian financial services space for some time now: the ‘war’ to defeat the activities of mostly unlicensed and unapproved ‘banks’ of various hues that have virtually invaded the banking sector. The “invaders” have been variously described as “online moneylenders”, “loan sharks”, “shylocks”, among others; yet they continue to proliferate, eat away at and undermine normal bank operations. The activities of these “invaders” have indeed annoyed and rattled the relevant regulatory agencies to no end; thus provoking the establishment of a joint investigative and disciplinary working group to “smoke out” and flush out these “strange banks”.

Not so long ago, the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) jointly launched an investigation into the violation of rights on the methods of lending money and the impacts of these so-called banks. Mr. Babatunde Irukera, the Managing Director of FCCPC recently revealed in Abuja that the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) and the National Information Technology Development Agency are also members of the Joint Compliance Committee regulations. Irukera said the committee would lead efforts to tackle multiple potentially questionable behaviors by some lenders, otherwise known as loan sharks.

According to him, relevant regulators have decided to collaborate and pursue urgent enforcement actions against known violators while investigating others, as well as criminal prosecutions where appropriate. He regretted that the “act” is fast becoming a mainstream and abusive practice targeting some of the most vulnerable people in Nigerian society. Many recipients of loan facilities from these voodoo banks are known to have been subjected to questionable repayment enforcement practices, including public shaming and privacy violations; and these have led to “significant and understandable consumer aggravation and dissatisfaction,” Irukera said.

The methods of these pseudo-banks also include arbitrary, unfair, unreasonable, or abusive interest rate and/or loan balance calculations, harassment, and failure of consumer feedback mechanisms, among others. Irukera said: “Initial investigations demonstrate that many of the purported lenders are not legally established or otherwise authorized by relevant authorities to engage in the services they ostensibly provide.”

Undoubtedly, these pseudo-banks have flourished on the “wings” of financial technology (fintech), offering financial products and services without going through the rigors of proper registration and/or licensing by the authorities. competent. It also provides them with an “escape” from prying eyes and scrutiny from regulators and supervisors. Thus, ensconced in their largely obscure world, they lure unsuspecting members of the public with “bait” (products) that are practically “whitewashed sepulchres”. And their victims end up paying through the nose and could be pushed into some sort of peonage.

The owners and operators of these pseudo-banks, who are mostly “digital natives”, use as a business tool what are called applications: software designed to perform specific functions directly for the user ( and that eliminate the hassle and paperwork burden in conventional banking when processing loans, for example). The FCCPC & Co have, during their investigations, traced the ownership and “management” of these applications to certain digital technology giants, namely Google and Apple. Indeed, the consumer protection body (FCCPC) accuses the two technology giants of “the inability to trace the owners of certain banks that failed to lend money online for violating consumer rights”. She has, prior to this indictment, ordered Google and Apple to enforce the removal of these money-lending applications (apps) from their stores when evidence of improper conduct or use of the apps in violation of rights consumers have been established.

While the FCCPC is waging this ‘war’ from its chosen front, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has also been relentless in its efforts to shield the gullible and vulnerable public from the dubious schemes of the proliferating ‘banks’. in financial services. space. Indeed, for the umpteenth time, the apex bank has drawn the attention of Nigerians to the risks of patronizing what it calls “illegal financial operators (IFOs) who carry out their nefarious business of extorting money. money to unsuspecting members of the public with a promise of high returns that will stay as they are, a false promise. Reiterating the warning from the Financial Services Regulatory Coordinating Committee (FSRCC) recently, the Head of Corporate Communications, CBN, Mr. Osita Nwanisobi, said that the increase in the number and activities of IFOs, which leaves portend a grave risk to public confidence and the stability of the Nigerian financial system was becoming worrying.

Dismissing pseudo-banks as “Ponzi schemes”, Nwanisobi argued that “as Nigerians we have a role to play in preventing some of these institutions from operating illegally” and insisted that “the nation should be wary of any institution that starts asking potential investors to bring in their money with offers of outrageously high interest rates. One of the dangers of frequenting these IFOs is that most of them are fronts for drug-related businesses, money laundering syndicates, incorrigible tax evaders and other similar rogue businesses that have a negative impact on the smooth functioning of financial systems not only in Nigeria but elsewhere. in the global village.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has also been involved in this raging “war” against the relentless perpetrators of “Ponzi schemes” in Nigeria. On March 14, 2022, the Supreme Capital Market Regulator waved the big stick and closed the offices of some organizations including Oxford International Group/Oxford Commercial Services, Farmforte Agro Allied Solutions Limited/Agropartnerships, VEKTR Capital Investment/VEKTR Enterprises.

In doing so, the SEC states: “The Commission hereby gives notice to the investing public that none of these entities is registered with the SEC, nor are the investment programs promoted by them approved by the SEC. ” The Commission warned that “it is unlawful for any private business…to solicit funds from the public by any means to finance its private business in contravention of the Investments and Securities Act 2007”.

As the war against “online lenders”, voodoo banks or “Ponzi schemes” intensifies, the ecosystem of financial services is constantly populated by new entrants. This scenario is already intensifying competition in an already “tense” banking sector. Payment Service Banks (PSBs), bank agencies and others are joining. Just a few days ago, the apex bank gave a final nod to MTN Nigeria for the launch of PSB, marking the telecommunications company’s entry into the already ‘crowded’ banking sector. Admittedly, this development can only increase competition, particularly between commercial banks and Fintechs; it could also advance financial inclusion by providing a diverse and heterogeneous range of financial services to the hitherto unbanked.

However, all of this poses challenges, both to the apex bank, to other regulators and to the banking public: the task of systematically separating the “apples” from the “oranges”. In other words, the banking public (all executives) needs to be systematically educated about the legitimate players and the bogus and fraudulent “invaders” that need to be driven out. Right now, too many desperadoes (especially fintech pundits) are flooding the financial services sector in an effort to reap bounties, even as the economy slows.

When we think of banking transformation, it tends to relate to the consumer side of business, especially online banking and apps. While this field has grown and will continue to grow, more fundamental systems also need to be transformed.

Ciarán Harris, co-founder and director of user experience (UX) consultancy Each&Other, said the renewed focus on bank upgrade design and user experience was driven by three key factors.

“Quite often the main reason is regulation and along with it you get system obsolescence. Systems are reaching end of life and need to be upgraded and replaced.

Alongside these two, new competition is also present in the market: “The third, more visible but perhaps less important, is competition, such as that of neo-banks.

Neo-banks have been on the scene for some time, with Revolut in particular making waves in Ireland. More to come: this week it was announced that Dutch digital bank bunq had entered the Irish market with a banking service that uses Irish International Bank Account Numbers (IBANs).

“The banks kind of denied they were a problem. Few people use neo-banks for day-to-day banking, but lots of people have accounts and once that momentum builds, it will be hard to stop,” Harris said.

For now, however, traditional banks are reviewing their core systems to see where improvements can be made.

Each&Other has done research with UK-based banks and found that the opportunities for improvement range from big overhauls to small changes that make a real difference.

“These are banks going through some kind of transformation, usually an operational transformation. We worked with a bank whose call numbers were huge. People just couldn’t find the information online. We reviewed it and found that there were immense challenges in finding even basic information online. Some simple edits and content restructuring [which is now being done] would literally save hundreds of thousands of people,” Harris said.

Another innovation was with a bank in Ireland, allowing customers to see their balance without logging in. This decision was driven by research into real-world customer behavior conducted by Each&Other.

“The phone was the trusted device and seeing the balance doesn’t allow you to do anything else. The driving force behind that was that we did observational research and we saw that there was a spike in connections but no online transactions at 6pm We found out it was people queuing in the supermarket to check their balance.

Customer Compliance

Of course, banks also face significant regulatory challenges, and it would be fair to say that today’s banking and financial services exist in an ever-changing environment.

“A lot of regulations came into effect after the financial crash, aimed at bringing more accountability and responsibility into global finance,” Harris said.

However, preparing systems to cope with future regulatory changes does not happen overnight. “Over there in the market, we see that some people are still implementing KYC [know your customer] and AML [anti money laundering].”

The problem is usually that inflexible computer systems have to be dealt with, and there was no single solution to achieve this. “There are different ways to deal with legacy hardware and systems,” Harris said.

One of Each&Other’s clients, based in the Middle East, found it easier to develop a new system than to work with the existing one. In other cases, the answer may be finding a way to integrate data from a legacy system into a new, more agile system.

“Some of the systems, even if they’re not that old, may not be flexible enough,” he said.

Although generally robust, mainframe platforms, for example, are not suited for interactivity, which poses obvious problems.

“An insurance company we were working with in the EU has a COBOL back-end and wants to make it more responsive. They do this by extracting the information into a data lake. From an actuarial perspective, there needs to be one primary record, one source of truth, but they want to enable client self-management, so there needs to be interaction between the systems,” Harris said.

That these transformations are needed has become increasingly clear as customer expectations grow, but Harris said there’s good news: Financial institutions paying attention to design and experience user evolve successfully.

“It makes a difference. Not just the digital user experience, but the whole end-to-end experience: they design their banking experience. »

This will become a key driver of customer satisfaction, Harris said. “If you talk to most bank customers, they are upset; the relationship is a challenge, one with not much flexibility. Turning it into a delicacy is a real possibility.

Malware campaigns distributing Android Trojans that steal online banking credentials have infected nearly 300,000 devices via malicious apps distributed through Google’s Play Store. When users log into online banking or cryptocurrency apps, Android banking Trojans delivered to compromised devices attempt to steal their credentials. Credential theft is usually carried out using fake banking login form overlays displayed above the login screens of legitimate apps. The stolen credentials are then sent back to the attacker’s servers, where they are gathered and sold to other threat actors or used to steal cryptocurrency and cash from victims’ accounts.

Additionally, ThreatFabric found that these apps were only distributed in specific regions or at later dates to further evade detection by Google and antivirus vendors. “This oversight by Google has forced actors to find ways to drastically reduce the footprint of dropper apps. In addition to improving malicious code efforts, Google Play distribution campaigns are also more refined than campaigns. previous releases,” ThreatFabric researchers explain in their new report.

In a new report from ThreatFabric, researchers explain how they discovered four different malware distribution campaigns distributing banking Trojans on the Google Play Store. While threat actors infiltrating the Google Play Store with Android banking Trojans are nothing new, recent changes to Google policies and increased enforcement have forced threat actors to evolve their tactics. to escape detection. its evolution includes creating small, realistic apps that focus on common themes such as fitness, cryptocurrency, QR codes, and PDF scanning to entice users to install the app. Then, to add additional legitimacy to apps, threat actors create websites that match the theme of the app to help pass reviews by Google.

“For example, introducing small, carefully planned malicious code updates over a longer period of time in Google Play, as well as sporting a C2 dropper backend to fully match the theme of the dropper app (e.g., a site Functional Fitness web for workout oriented app).” However, once these “dropper” applications are installed, they will silently communicate with the threat author’s server to receive commands.When ready to distribute the banking Trojan, the threat author’s server of the threat instructs the installed app to perform a fake “update” that “removes” and launches the malware on the Android device.

Use only smart and verified apps

Mobile apps are great for quick access to a variety of services.

Only browse secure and authorized websites

A website may look professional, but you should avoid making payments online unless you are sure it is genuine. Be aware of website domain names that may resemble the original in the URL. Only browse websites that have “https://” preceded by “www” and the domain name in the URL.

Use secure connections

The urge to use insecure public connections can also lead to a problem as it becomes accessible to cyber fraudsters on the prowl. They can monitor your activity and access your smartphone using advanced technology. Therefore, if you plan to make an online payment, make sure you do so using a secure private internet connection.

Be careful when using the card

Always make card payments in front of your eyes and check if the POS card reading machine is genuine. There are many stories of cards being cloned by skimmers because the card needs to be out of your sight when making online payments. If your card is lost, immediately informing the bank and having it blocked is the first step to take, as blocking the card quickly can prevent financial losses.

Improve your computer and mobile security

Keep your computer and mobile phone security software, web browser, and operating system up to date to prevent online cheating. Always define your strong passwords with special characters, letters, numbers and upper and lower case. Remember to change passwords regularly.

Do not answer unsolicited calls and messages

We all receive fraudulent calls, emails and messages that attempt to trick us into disclosing personal information. Fraudulent callers may pose as an employee of a bank or financial institution and ask for your financial details, citing issuing credit cards, free cash back, lottery, etc. Once they get your bank details, they can steal your hard earned money. from your bank account without your knowledge. Do not entertain these communications.

Don’t give “remote access” to your computer

Unless you’ve contacted a technician to repair your computer, anyone trying to access your computer remotely is most likely a scammer. These types of deceivers will invoke reasons such as updating your software, operating system or antivirus and get access to your personal information which later turns into online payment fraud.

Avoid sharing your personal information

Never share your personal and banking details offline or online unless you are absolutely sure of the authenticity of the representative. There may be a cyber crook disguised as an official of a financial institution. Always verify the identity of the person requesting bank details and never share your personal information on social networking sites either.

Thousands of people fall prey to this type of banking scams every year in this online banking environment. These tips can help you protect your bank balance.

The top line: As demand for seamless digital payment experiences continues to grow, Swedish company Tink is offering open bank payments in more locations across Europe.

The justification: Cards power the digital economy in the United Kingdom (UK) and the European Union, according to a PYMNTS study carried out in collaboration with Stripe. But merchants there don’t like paying card interchange fees. The advent of open banking payments is seen as a way to integrate cardless options into payment flows.

The details: Using Tink’s payment technology, users can quickly, easily and securely pay from an online merchant using their bank account credentials.

  • Improving the user experience for payments can give retailers a competitive advantage and banks the ability to enable payment choice.
  • The economics of the new business model can give retailers a way to create incentives for consumers to try and use.
  • APIs integrated with the payment service provider (PSP) or the merchant’s own ecosystem create a seamless customer experience.

Tink by the numbers:

  • Collaborates with more than 300 banks and FinTechs
  • Present in 18 European markets
  • Connects to over 250 million banking customers
  • ISO 27001 certified
  • Founded in 2012
  • Became part of Visa in 2022

In their words: “Our goal is to be the backbone of payment service providers across Europe.” — Tom Pope, Head of Payments and Platforms at Tink

Bonus has selected finicitya Mastercard company, as Open Banking’s preferred provider for its MemberPass credit unions.

Through this partnership, Bonifii can access banking data authorized by consumers, to inform the underwriting of different types of mortgage, auto, personal and small business loans.

MemberPass, powered by Bonifii, is a digital ID that uses distributed ledger technology and FIDO privacy principles, currently issued by credit unions. The FIDO technical specifications stipulate that a FIDO device should not have a global identifier visible on websites, which helps to avoid unwanted and unexpected re-identification of a FIDO user. With the help of Mastercard, Bonifii members can add consumer-authorized data on top of the MemberPass digital identity solution to help individuals access capital securely.

Mastercard’s Open Banking platform can provide verification of income, assets and employment reports directly to credit unions during the underwriting process, all built with data authorized by the borrower’s consumer. This technology enables credit unions to offer a digital-first method through which their borrowers can instantly provide the required information the credit union needs to make a lending decision and replaces the manual processes historically associated with the underwriting process for the borrower and the lender.

Mastercard’s Open Banking technology also reduces the risk of fraud and other time-consuming inaccuracies that credit union underwriters face daily. Together, Bonifii and Mastercard will provide consumers with a safer, more secure and private opportunity to authorize their data to verify identity and account ownership during the loan process.
