Uberisation of Lending: How banks can stay ahead of the curve

The banking industry is undergoing a transformation as banks are facing increased competition from alternatives, such as shadow banks, challenger banks, and new-age FinTech firms. According to market data sources, the total assets of nonbank lenders have surpassed $18 tn, ahead of commercial banks’ $16 tn.
Lenders are looking to achieve a favorable cost-to-income ratio, while complying with stringent regulatory requirements.
