Are we witnessing a revolution in retail banking which is benefiting the consumer? Are the new entrants challenging the ‘norm’? If so, what will the new bank look like? We ask our panel of journalists, as the challengers line up to take on the big banks, what (if any) impact has new competition had on the high street banks. Are they a genuine threat? Will trust in banks and financial services improve as a result? What observations do our panellists have on the communications challenges faced not only by the new entrants tussling to get their voice heard, but also the legacy big banks?
