How financial services can keep up with the digital investor

Bank of Scotland, Halifax, Lloyds and Natwest have just announced over 200 branch closures collectively. Natwest says it’s a result of the ‘dramatic shift’ from face-to-face to online and mobile transactions.

Nothing new there… 32 of its branches went last year because of ‘increased use of digital banking’ and 300 as far back as 1996, as it rolled out new technology.
