Is the Future of Community Banks at Risk?

Some experts predict the demise of community banking organizations, that are challenged by changed consumer behavior, outdated infrastructure, an evolving competitive landscape, and the high cost of digital transformation.

Is there a viable niche for community banks and credit unions in an industry that is increasingly dominated by huge mega-banks, or are we entering an era of ‘too small to succeed’? If there is a niche, what needs to be done today?

Our guest is Jeff Marsico, President of The Kafafian Group, Inc. and author of the new book, 'Squared Away: How Can Bankers Succeed as Economic First Responders'. Jeff discusses the role community banks and credit unions can play in an increasingly demanding banking ecosystem.
