Digital banks have been on the rise in the last few years. With an end-to-end digital experience and no physical branches, millions of customers around the world switched to virtual banking for their banking activities: from mobile payments and multiple currencies' accounts to overseas remittances and wealth management solutions, all at very competitive fees.
In conjunction with the #mydigitalworkforce Week by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), we gather experts in banking and fintech to share their opinion on creating digital Islamic banks, the legal and operational challenges, market acceptance and what will be the value-added to the Islamic banking industry.
- What are the key ingredients of digital banking that explain its increasing growth?
- How sustainable is the digital banking model? And what are the main challenges for digital banking global adoption?
- What are the best strategies in creating a successful digital banking model for Islamic banks? What can impede this success?
