In Canada, the ranks of new smartphone banking users are set to nose-dive in 2021 to a third of the year prior, which will lead competition among financial institutions (FIs) to escalate. In the intense battle for new users, the features of FIs’ mobile apps will be crucial: This spotlight report highlights the key areas where Scotiabank can strengthen its mobile offering to better compete for new customers.
