Here’s a little presentation that I may have had a little (a lot!) involvement in. The deck covers 10 trends that are changing the face of financial services, with the slides looking at evolving consumer behavior and the brands or start-ups that are looking to leverage those changes. The trends themselves are often the result of shifts in technology, adaptation in brand behavior or just the visible tipping point toward the evolution of the industry or niche sector itself. I hope you enjoy the preo and please feel free to forward to everyone you know :)
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia, the largest bank down under has jumped into the deep-end of the mobile wallet wars with their recently announced mobile application called Kaching…as in ka-ching! The mobile platform has a number of cool features including the well established NFC technology that was extensively highlighted in Googles recent Google Wallet Vision Video. In addition to being NFC enabled, Kaching also allows payment between friends via Facebook, email and mobile number.
