Digital Bank: Strategies to launch or become a digital bank
The first edition of BANK 2.0 took the financial services world by storm and became synonymous with disruptive customer behaviour, technology shift and new banking models. In BANK 3.0, Brett King looks at the latest trends that are redefining financial services and payments. From the global scramble for dominance of the mobile wallet, the expectations created by tablet computing, the operationalizing of the cloud and the explosion of social media he explores: • How Social Media has exposed pricing, over-regulation, outdated processes and poor policy,• How mobile technology is completely changing the context of banking,• How customer advocacy is killing traditional brand marketing,• The growth of the ‘de-banked’ consumer who doesn’t need a bank at all; and• Why Banking is no longer a place you go, but something you doBANK 3.0 shows that the gap between customer and financial services players is rapidly growing, leaving massive opportunities for new, non-bank competitors to totally disrupt the industry.

The Land Without A Banking Law – How To Start A Bank With A Thousand Dollars
New Zealand is generally perceived as a high tax country and has consequently not been a target in the international campaign against offshore tax havens. The fact is that New Zealand offers secretive zero tax structures for offshore activities and perhaps even more remarkable, a legal framework that allows for virtually anyone to start a Bank without being subject to any capital or qualification requirements. New Zealand Offshore Finance Companies are Banks, both in a legal and practical sense, but not Registered Banks under supervision of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. While there are laws in New Zealand regulating financial activities, there are no regulatory entry barriers as such for the business of banking when services are offered to non-residents only. The regulatory framework and upcoming changes to the relevant legislation are explained. You will also learn about abusive behavior by government officials and embarrassing blunders by the local authorities..
