BAI Webinar

Where smaller banks and credit unions
can win

RECORDED: September 15, 2020
TIME: 1:00 - 2:00 PM CT

Big banks are well-run, fearsome competitors. Large technology budgets, advanced mobile products, and top talent give them an advantage. Smaller banks and credit unions have found themselves on the defensive.

However, small- and mid-sized financial institutions can still compete – and there are segments they can win.

Join us for this complimentary BAI webinar to hear Tom Brown, Editor-in-Chief of Tom Brown’s Banking Weekly and founder and CEO of Second Curve Capital, give insights on the four areas where he sees the greatest opportunity for smaller banks: debit card programs, private banking, SMB banks and pick-your-spots banks.

Key Takeaways:

  • How smaller banks and credit unions can pursue an offensive strategy in these areas
  • Why there is an opportunity in these niche spaces
  • During the current pandemic, what small- and mid-sized financial institutions can learn from the way the largest banks invested in themselves during the 2008 financial crisis
