Community Financial Institutions: Going Beyond Being Friendly



FEATURING: Jim Perry, Senior Strategist at Market Insights, Inc.

Community banks, deeply rooted in their local domains, have played a pivotal role in supporting the financial needs of individuals, small businesses, and local economies. But the digitalization of the industry has altered the playing field.

Looking forward, what are the unique advantages local financial institutions can bring to the table beyond ‘being friendly’? What are the challenges they face in competing with larger marketplace leaders? And what are the strategies management must adopt to ensure they remain future-ready.

I am excited to have Jim Perry, Senior Strategist at Market Insights, Inc. on the Banking Transformed podcast. We will be discussing how community banks and credit unions can best co-exist in a marketplace that includes regional and national banks, tech companies, fintech firms and even non-financial players.
