Bank Mergers and Its Effect On Your Customer Base: Minimizing the Impact on Customer Attrition
Mergers have become an important self-preservation tool for banks and financial institutions in the wake of the global financial crisis. These firms, however, face considerable challenges with respect to M&A activity and its potential negative impact on their customer bases. In the customer’s mind, it’s all about trust and confidence, but people lose faith when they see mergers as a result of financial duress. Thus, it is necessary to lay out plans that can prevent consumer attrition and reassert confidence during the interim period. How do mergers affect consumers of the banks involved? What factors erode consumer confidence in the institutions and what can be done? The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of distinguished professionals to help banks, financial institutions, and industry watchers understand the impact of bank mergers and to teach them how to retain consumers in these turbulent times.
