via Tearsheet

Challenger banks have leapfrogged to the forefront in overall customer satisfaction, according to a new study from FIS.

The 2019 FIS Performance Against Customer Expectations (PACE) surveyed almost 1800 US consumers.

Customers increasingly like challenger banks

63 percent of direct bank customers report being “extremely satisfied”, compared to 52 percent of credit union customers and just 19 percent of customers of the top 50 global banks. (more…)

Supply Chain Finance Stumped By KYC

via PYMNTS

The Asian Development Bank’s estimates that the global trade finance gap has reached $1.5 trillion has jumpstarted a new wave of competition between banks and FinTechs working to address the biggest challenges to landing capital in the hands of global traders.

FinTech has identified a particularly large opportunity in the trade finance market, pegging traditional banks as too slow to innovate, without the agility to manage the complex processes often linked with financing trade with smaller businesses. Banks’ massive compliance burdens cannot be ignored, either.

However, analysts also note that FinTechs have their own regulatory requirements as well (albeit, often much lower than those of banks), and because they aim to address the financing gap for smaller businesses seen as less lucrative by banks, the due diligence burden is lofty as well. A 2017 report by the Asian Development Bank found that, despite its efforts, FinTech had not yet made a dent on that global trade finance gap. (more…)

via PYMNTS

With more consumers than ever interested in fulfilling all their financial needs on mobile, both legacy banks and FinTech firms are focusing on creating digital-only banking services, designed to catch and keep customers using their smartphones to bank. What’s more, financial institutions (FIs) and payment providers around the world are trying their hand at providing all the capabilities of an established bank on the smartphone.

As consumers flock to banking apps, succeeding in the world of digital banking is not as easy as it used to be when mobile apps emerged a decade ago. In the new Digital Banking Tracker™, PYMNTS examines how startups are competing with legacy brands, social media services and even eCommerce companies that want to add financial capabilities to their platforms.

Banking on Millennials: Balancing Branch Preferences And Digital Expectations

Via The Financial Brand 

Knowing what’s really important to consumers is critical to acquisition, retention and cross-selling in the banking industry. But Millennial stereotypes frequently fool financial marketers, muddling their marketing strategies with faulty assumptions. Turns out they love branches just as much as Gen X and Baby Boomers. And all generations share one thing in common: They expect more, particularly in digital channels.

JD.com is a rapidly growing Chinese e-commerce business which has underperformed compared to its peers.

This might change soon and the company is expected to turn profitable this year and trades at an extremely low price-to-sales multiple.

My valuation model suggests that JD’s shares could appreciate by as much as 70 percent annually over the next three years.

SaaS Fundraising In 2017

By Tomasz Tunguz from Redpoint Ventures

When I analyzed the SaaS fundraising market in 2016, three trends emerged. The number of SaaS companies raising rounds had stalled, while the total number of dollars plateaued. Meanwhile, round sizes swelled. In other words, there was a concentration of capital in an increasingly small number of names. A year later, those trends have continued to converge, and SaaS valuations have resurged, reaching their highs of the 2014-2015 boom. (more…)

OnDeck Releases Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results & Announces Extension of Existing Relationship With JPMorgan Chase

On Monday, online lender OnDeck released its second quarter 2017 financial results, which revealed a significant narrow quarterly loss along with providing an update regarding the lender’s ongoing $45 million cost rationalization plan, and reaffirmed it is on track to achieve GAAP profitability by the end of 2017.

While discussing the quarterly results, Noah Breslow, OnDeck’s CEO, stated:

“OnDeck’s second quarter 2017 results demonstrated solid progress toward achieving our strategic priorities. Our credit policy adjustments that began in the middle of the first quarter continue to yield benefits, with sequential improvements in both our Provision Rate and 15+ Day Delinquency Ratio.  We also further implemented our $45 million cost rationalization plan, lowering our annual operating expense run rate going forward to approximately $160 million.

 

“Reflecting these initiatives, the net loss applicable to OnDeck common stockholders, which included a $3.2 million severance charge, decreased to $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2017, an improvement of more than $16 million from the prior year quarter.  We are on track to return to sequential originations growth in Q3 and achieve GAAP profitability by year end, and we look forward to profitable growth off a lower expense base in 2018.”

Meanwhile, OnDeck also announced it has extended its partnership with JPMorgan Chase. The bank revealed with technology support from OnDeck, it launched the product in early 2016 to existing Chase Business Checking customers by invitation only. Chase plans to continue to refine the product, including expanding access and enhancing digital features in 2018. Julie Kimmerling, senior manager and head of the Chase Business Quick Capital product at Chase Business Banking, added:

“Over 18 months ago, we set out to simplify the conventional originations processes, which can take weeks to months – time that many small businesses don’t have. Today, our digital lending product allows us to provide superior client experience, and we’ve been pleased with customer feedback.”
