CX CliffsNote 2: Big Banks Overtaking Mid-Size/Regional Banks by Investing in Technology

JD Power surveyed 75,000 retail banking customers and the results are worth reading.

  • Big banks have significantly improved in overall customer satisfaction, while midsize banks have declined and Regional banks have plateaued.
  • Satisfaction is driven by a combination of improved digital offerings, more engaged personal interactions and stronger connections with millenials, a generation that constitutes the most quickly growing segment of the population.
  • Getting tech right is key — mobile banking and online banking have a direct impact on overall satisfaction.
  • “Based on their current trajectory, the country’s largest retail banking institutions are expected to achieve a substantial lead in overall customer satisfaction vs. Midsize and Regional banks by 2020.”
