The Covid Crisis Effects On The Financial Services Industry

Webinar Recording

Amid the global pandemic, a financial services industry survey conducted jointly by the UK-based Financial Services Club and US-based Ravco Marketing, sponsored by Salesforce, has found that the industry sees a silver lining resulting from COVID-19. Most think the crisis has had a positive influence on their customer and employee relationships, on the market fit for their current products, and the productivity levels of work from home employees. Not all is positive, though, with the majority saying that their ability to reach this year’s business goals have been negatively affected.

The survey of executives in banking, FinTech and consulting covers six key areas:

  • Crisis management preparedness
  • Effects on current operations
  • Working from home
  • Relationships with customers and employees
  • The future effects of the crisis
  • Current state-of-mind
