Abstract [en]

The financial sector is transforming as a result of PSD2 and open banking. The traditional retail banks face new competition from FinTechs and BigTechs. 78 percent of Nordic banks are concerned by the threat of disruption and 88 percent think that they need to rethink their business model. Customer experience and customer journeys are crucial as customer expectations is one of the major driving forces for the changing industry.Generation Y (1989 2000) is often defined as early adopters and digital natives which makes them an important but challenging customer segment. According to the Millennial Disruption Index, the banking industry is at the highest risk of disruption from generation Y. This study focus on how traditional Swedish retail banks can manage digital transformation and the needs and behavior of the Swedish generation Y. To identify the needs and demands of generation Y, four focus groups was conducted with 31 participants and four semi-structured interviews. The results was analyzed and related to a customer journey framework and the concept of platform banking.The results indicate that the Swedish generation Y demands personalized services and products as well as tailored Omni-channel experiences. They demand an expansion of financial services in the form of a “one-stop-shop”. In order to meet these demands, traditional Swedish retail banks must utilize their customer data and weight the Swedish generation Y´s trust in their security. This will enable them to develop superior customer experiences as well as extending their context and establish themselves as banking platforms.

Abstract [sv]

Den finansiella sektorn förändras till följd av PSD2 och open banking. De traditionella bankerna möter ny konkurrens från FinTechs och BigTechs. 78 procent av de nordiska bankerna är oroade av förändringarna och 88 procent tycker att de behöver ompröva sin affärsmodell. Kundupplevelser och kundresor är avgörande eftersom kundernas förväntningar är en av de viktigaste drivkrafterna för den föränderliga industrin.Generation Y (1989 2000) definieras ofta som digitala pionjärer vilket gör dem till ett viktigt men utmanande kundsegment. Enligt studien ”Millennial Disruption Index” har banksektorn den högsta risken för störningar från Generation Y. Denna studie fokuserar på hur traditionella svenska banker kan hantera digital transformation och den svenska generation Ys behov och beteende. För att identifiera behov och krav från generation Y genomfördes fyra fokusgrupper med 31 deltagare samt fyra semi-strukturerade intervjuer. Resultaten analyserades och relaterades till en kundrese teori samt konceptet om plattformsbanker.Resultaten indikerar att den svenska generation Y kräver personliga tjänster och produkter samt skräddarsydda Omni-kanalupplevelser. De kräver en expansion av finansiella tjänster i form av en "one-stop-shop". För att möta dessa krav måste traditionella svenska banker använda deras kunddata och utnyttja den svenska generation Ys förtroende för deras säkerhet. Detta kommer att göra det möjligt för dem att utveckla överlägsna kundupplevelser såväl som att utvidga sitt sammanhang och etablera sig som bankplattformar.
