Banks are continuing to do everything they can to encourage people to invest their money, and feel confident that the banking system is working. However, larger banks are struggling as more people want to see community banks in their local area. These banks feel more personal, and offer a distinctive one on one service that large banks will never be able to offer.
Other countries have been far quicker to recover from the crisis than the UK as they have been realistic about what people want from their bank. As the country continues to rebuild its financial situation, there is a massive element of trust that is lacking. This is why the need for smaller, local banks is essential, and will help to build confidence.
People want to return to the times when they knew everyone in the bank, and the employees were knowledgeable regarding the local area. Local people will feel empowered to solve their problems and work together as a community. The banks that are available need to make these changes to ensure that they continue to be attractive to their audience.
Traditional banking methods are not an unusual concept as more banks are realising that this is the way forward. Building excellent relationships is not difficult, but the banks need to be realistic regarding what people want. The concept of the local banks is to ensure that people feel confident that their bank is offering a personal service.
