WSBI and innovation

WSBI sees innovation as a crucial ingredient to help its members thrive in the 21st century. As an international banking association that brings together savings and retail banks located on all continents, innovation and digitalisation can help foster closer customer relationships and better services while in the long term increasing financial inclusion and boosting sustainable, modern finance.

WSBI helps members by fostering exchange of experience and success stories through activities like the São Paulo workshop. That exchange includes efforts to facilitate knowledge sharing among members, with FinTech companies and other strategic frontrunners through exchanges of information and experience at all levels within the organisation as well as in-house knowledge management.

Backed by some 6,000 financial institutions with total assets of US$16.7 trillion and serving more than 1.3 billion customers in some 80 countries worldwide, WSBI voices the concerns of savings and retail banks through advocacy, representing the interests of its members towards international policy makers and standard setters on the main regulatory and other issues that shape international retail banking policy.
