Jimmy Stallings, President of Stride Bank's Payments Division, pens Journal record article 

 

To remain relevant in today’s highly competitive market, banks must employ creative thinking, forward-looking strategies, and a firm commitment to a digital future. In a world where technology is reshaping customer preferences and workforce dynamics, embracing a culture of perpetual improvement is vital for attracting both customers and top talent in an increasingly digital world.

A recent report from Forbes highlights a shift in the banking sector, with megabanks and regional banks witnessing a decline in new checking account openings. Meanwhile, digital and fintech banks have surged in popularity, growing by 36-47% since 2020. Over one-third of Gen Z and millennials now consider a fintech or digital bank as their primary checking account provider. Digital banks, like the ones we partner with, have proven to be extremely adept at identifying shifting customer needs, designing great products that improve people’s lives, and getting their message out. Partnering with tech pioneers like this has been a cornerstone of Stride Bank’s reputation for innovation in the community banking space but that has only been the most recent chapter in a long history of early adoption.
