‘Connected Corporate Banking: Breaking Down the Silos’, defines the technology banks need to comprehensively serve corporate banking customers. It also assesses vendors based on the full breadth of their corporate banking capabilities. Finastra’s corporate banking platform emerges as the broadest, most integrated suite of applications, connected on a single platform for corporate banking.

Banks that want to attract and retain this business must continue to invest in updating and enhancing their technology infrastructure while embracing emerging technology. Integration underpins this idea of ‘connected corporate banking’ and is crucial to providing the efficient services corporate clients demand and providing the platform every bank needs to differentiate their service offerings in the future.”
