Business banking during a global pandemic – How have banks performed?

Philippa Whitham Senior Director 16/12/2020

2020 has been an extremely unusual and challenging year for the business world, with shifting demands to manage as the COVID pandemic hit and the shockwaves were felt.

One of the most noticeable shifts during 2020 relates to lending, where the demand for borrowing has significantly increased.

Financial services, particularly banks, were considered essential, needing to remain open to service customers’ needs. But at the same time, the banks themselves needed to adapt – their technology, their processes, and their staff.

Our recent research through Savanta MarketVue explores the changing business customer needs and how the business world feels banks have responded and serviced them during this difficult time. Our free download focuses on a number of key areas including changes to:

  • Lending patterns
  • Borrowing levels
  • Service performance levels during COVID-19
