The Louisiana Bankers Association (LBA) recently expanded its endorsement of D+H products to include its comprehensive solutions for consumer and commercial loans – Total Lending – and for mortgage lending – Mortgagebot.
The endorsement is designed to give LBA members improved access to these solutions, offering them complete, intuitive, single-vendor platforms that can increase transparency and efficiencies at their firms. The move comes as financial institutions face increased competition from alternative lenders that, shorn of multiple business lines and branches, can create fast, efficient, compelling experiences for borrowers online.
We had a chance to speak to Ginger Laurent, Chief Operating Officer of the LBA and a veteran banker, about the reason why the organization expanded its endorsement of D+H solutions. We also had a chance to discuss the trends now shaping banking, as well as the issues that were keeping her membership up at night.
Our Interview covered:
- Why did the LBA expand its endorsement of D+H?
- How well are banks coping with competition from alternative lenders?
- Is the branch network dead weight in the bank business model?
- Is the biggest disruption for bots at member banks still ahead or as it happened already?
- Where do bots and AI add the most value in banking service and where should they NOT be?
