Tech Giants on the Horizon: A New Competitive Landscape

In a groundbreaking study commissioned by Temenos, a Swiss enterprise software provider, and conducted by Economist Impact, traditional banks are recognizing a significant shift in their competitive landscape. Tech and e-commerce disruptors, including heavyweights like Google, Facebook, and Microsoft, are emerging as formidable rivals in the eyes of banking executives for the next five years.

The Pulse of the Industry: Survey Highlights

The survey engaged 300 executives from retail, commercial, and private banking across the globe. The resounding sentiment is that banks are increasingly feeling the heat of competition from these tech giants. A remarkable 40% of respondents pointed to these players as their primary rivals for the next half-decade, marking a notable increase from 34% in 2020.

Evolution of Influence: A Historical Perspective

Examining historical data reveals a sharp escalation in the influence and threat posed by big tech companies. The battleground is shifting towards one-stop-shop solutions for online purchases, intensifying the competition between traditional banks and non-financial entrants.

Their extensive digital ecosystems offer a diverse array of products and services accessible through a unified platform—a particularly enticing proposition for the new generation seeking seamless and comprehensive online experiences.
