In today’s fast-paced financial landscape, financial institutions must stay ahead of the curve when it comes to account opening and onboarding. Digital account opening, empowering a prospective client to securely and efficiently open a new account, is key to how banks, credit unions and other financial institutions grow their business and expand their portfolio. Regardless of the time, money and other resources a financial institution invests in marketing to the right target prospect and tailoring an attractive offer, it’s worthless if that prospective customer can’t complete the process due to a poor account opening experience. Unhappy customers vote with their feet. A recent Experian study found that of the more 2,000 consumers surveyed who’d opened a new account in the last six months, 37% took their business elsewhere due to a negative account opening experience.
The choice of a reliable partner can make all the difference to your account opening and onboarding experience. The right partner must provide your financial institution with access to the freshest credit data; advanced analytics, scores and models to empower you to say yes to the right customers that meet your lending criteria; and industry-leading decision engines that make the best decisions and enable you to provide a seamless customer experience. Moreover, the right partner will also help you in maintaining high levels of security without compromising user experience, all while adhering to regulatory compliance.
Recently, Liminal, a leading advisory and market intelligence firm specializing in the digital identity, cybersecurity, and fintech markets, released its highly anticipated Link™ Index Report for Account Opening in Financial Services, which evaluates solution providers in the financial sector, in the areas of compliance and fraud prevention for account opening.
