Competition is good, partnership is better

Be part of the ecosystem Be part of the ecosystem

Oliver Bussmann, Group Chief Information Officer at UBS

There is no doubt the industry is about to be disrupted in a major way, just as countless industries before it. But there are some differences in banking. Digitalization will enrich customer interactions, but bank clients also value the human touch. That will not go away. There is also the expertise element: It’s one thing to build a robo-adviser, another to teach it to give good advice. So investment performance will remain extremely important, and that requires know-how of the kind banks have.

Banks will play a central role. Banks will play a central role.

Axel Weber, Chairman of the Board of Directors of UBS

Ultimately the goal needs to be to improve client satisfaction and we think this is a very important element. Technology is not just an enabler for wealth management clients though – it can have the same enabling effect across all parts of our business. If banks want to maintain a competitive edge, there is no question they will need to continue to invest in the latest technology. The banks which are able to not only be among the first movers in the usage of the new technologies but also to translate the technological potential into added value for clients will benefit most.
