“McKinsey research found that the human touch is still important to bank customers in most markets revealing that only 13% of customers prefer doing everything remotely.
According to a J.D. Power survey, digital-only banking customers were dissatisfied with three areas: communication and advice; products and fees; and new account opening.
HSBC flagship New York branch has Pepper, its humanoid robot banking assistant. Pepper complements the branch team and helps customers with basic questions, product tutorials and information, allowing associates to answer more complex queries.
In the UK, NatWest has been testing Cora, its “digital human” banking assistant. If the pilot is successful, the assistant could be used in branches to answer basic customer enquiries.”
