Capturing Southeast Asia’s financial-system opportunity

All remain largely cash-based economies, and few people have bank accounts. In this interview, Matthew Driver, MasterCard’s group executive, global products and solutions, Asia–Pacific, discusses the opportunity that presents and why the ASEAN region should be viewed alongside Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRICs). An extended and edited transcript of Driver’s comments follows. Interview transcript A misunderstood region If you think about ASEAN, I think there’s a lot of misunderstanding about what it might be.

At the macro level, the opportunity is big enough to consider ASEAN as a legitimate alternative to India and China. Experian micro analytics at DuckDuckGo. Capitalizing on Asia's digital-banking boom. Since 2011, adoption of digital-banking services has soared across Asia.

Capitalizing on Asia's digital-banking boom

Consumers are turning to computers, smartphones, and tablets more often to do business with their banks, while visiting branches and calling service lines less frequently. In developed Asian markets, Internet banking is now near universal, and smartphone banking has grown more than threefold since 2011. In emerging Asian markets, the trend is similarly dynamic, with about a quarter of consumers using computers and smartphones for their banking. And despite some structural obstacles, we believe this surge will continue—and incumbents and market entrants alike should prepare for the consequences. Last year, we surveyed about 16,000 financial consumers in 13 Asian markets, and the results showed drastic shifts in behavior compared with a similar survey in 2011 (exhibit).

As has been evident for the past decade, Asian consumers have flocked to digital technologies, with adoption rates for some devices, especially mobile phones, outstripping Western rates.

How to prepare for Asia’s digital-banking boom

ATM usage has skyrocketed in Asia, and across age segments the “consumer decision journey” has increasingly moved online. The pattern for most purchases now is that they are researched online and concluded in the branch, but we are beginning to see online purchasing as well. A significant constraint on the progress of this trend is the state of regulation in many countries, which require purchases to be finalized by customers signing documents in branches, in the presence of branch employees. Meanwhile, larger numbers of Asian consumers, especially younger ones, are expressing a preference for interacting through nonbranch channels.

The story will only accelerate as a young, digitally savvy generation matures. Increasing digital usage across Asia. Exhibit 1. Future_of_Asian_Banking_Volume_2.pdf. Quintessence - Bitcoin: What you didn't know but always wanted to ask. Please click here to know more about: A short history of money A new technology for the banking world: “The internet of money” In 2008, an individual or group writing under the name of Satoshi Nakamoto published a paper that described a peer-to-peer version of electronic cash that “would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution”.

Quintessence - Bitcoin: What you didn't know but always wanted to ask

The first implementation of this concept is known as Bitcoin. Today, ‘crypto-currencies’ is the label used to describe all networks and mediums of exchange that use cryptography to secure transactions – as opposed to systems in which transactions are secured through a third party, such as a bank. The author of the first paper wanted to remain anonymous or so we think since no one knows Satashi Nakamoto to this day.

Finextra blog: Something New Happening in Transaction Banking? I am happy to share the initial findings of my research on how transaction banking is transforming.

The Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act (or Check 21 Act) is a United States federal law, Pub.L. 108–100, that was enacted on October 28, 2003 by the 108th U.S. Congress. The Check 21 Act took effect one year later on October 28, 2004. The law allows the recipient of the original paper check to create a digital version of the original check, a process known as check truncation, into an electronic format called a "substitute check", thereby eliminating the need for further handling of the physical document. Consumers are most likely to see the effects of this act when they notice that certain checks (or image of) are no longer being returned to them with their monthly statement, even though other checks are still being returned.

Another side effect of the law is that it is now legal for anyone to use a computer scanner or mobile phone to capture images of checks and deposit them electronically, a process known as remote deposit. The Future of ATMs. iOS POS System de Detailhandel. Volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. VUCA is an acronym used to describe or reflect on the volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity of general conditions and situations. The common usage of the term VUCA began in the 1990s and derives from military vocabulary.[1] It has been subsequently used in emerging ideas in strategic leadership that apply in a wide range of organizations, including everything from for-profit corporations[2] to education.[3] Meaning[edit] The deeper meaning of each element of VUCA serves to enhance the strategic significance of VUCA foresight and insight as well as the behaviour of groups and individuals in organizations.[4] It discusses systemic failures[5] and behavioural failures,[5] which are characteristic of organisational failure.

These elements present the context in which organizations view their current and future state. They present boundaries for planning and policy management. Themes[edit] Digital wallet. A digital wallet refers to an electronic device that allows an individual to make electronic commerce transactions. This can include purchasing items on-line with a computer or using a smartphone to purchase something at a store. Increasingly, digital wallets are being made not just for basic financial transactions but to also authenticate the holder's credentials. For example, a digital-wallet could potentially verify the age of the buyer to the store while purchasing alcohol.

It is useful to approach the term "digital wallet" not as a singular technology but as three major parts: the system (the electronic infrastructure) and the application (the software that operates on top) and the device (the individual portion).[1] An individual’s bank account can also be linked to the digital wallet. M-Pesa. M-Pesa (M for mobile, pesa is Swahili for money) is a mobile-phone based money transfer and microfinancing service, launched in 2007 by Vodafone for Safaricom and Vodacom, the largest mobile network operators in Kenya and Tanzania.[1] It has since expanded to Afghanistan, South Africa, India and in 2014 to Eastern Europe.

M-Pesa allows users to deposit, withdraw, transfer money and pay for goods and services (Lipa na M-Pesa) easily with a mobile device.[2] The service allows users to deposit money into an account stored on their cell phones, to send balances using PIN-secured SMS text messages to other users, including sellers of goods and services, and to redeem deposits for regular money. Users are charged a small fee for sending and withdrawing money using the service.[3] M-Pesa is a branchless banking service; M-Pesa customers can deposit and withdraw money from a network of agents that includes airtime resellers and retail outlets acting as banking agents. History[edit] Pay. How Will Banks Respond if Apple Becomes Mobile Payments Player. According to several reports, Apple is gearing up to roll out a new payments system for physical goods and services beyond the walls of it’s Apple stores.

'Disruptive Innovation' describes a process by which a product or service takes root initially at the bottom of a market and then relentlessly moves up market, eventually displacing established competitors.

By David Malone The last few decades have brought a surge of technological advances, and no industry has been immune – including the banking industry.
