How to Build a Digital Banking Lifestyle ‘Super App’

Dubai-headquartered Emirates NBD has the distinction of being a legacy bank fully committed to innovation, digital transformation and customer-centricity. Rather than moving in baby steps, Emirates has made major efforts to build unique digital solutions for select segments.

In 2017, Emirates NBD introduced Liv, a digital lifestyle banking platform geared to the needs of Millennials and Gen Z customers. The most recent iteration of the digital app was introduced this summer, integrating several third-party platforms, allowing customers to book tables or flights, play games or get concert tickets, and receive discounts on food and retail. The app also provides a host of financial tools to better manage money.

We are joined today by Jayesh Patel, the head of Liv, the first digital-only lifestyle bank which is part of Emirates NBD. With more than 300,000 users, Liv has leveraged an open API platform to expand product features and boost Emirates NBD’s revenues. On today’s episode, Jayesh discusses digital transformation at Emirates NBD, the importance of an innovation culture and the development of a challenger bank within a legacy banking organization.
