Why Frega should continue pursuing Banking Licence

Banks are already starting to make changes to their system and we can expect this year to be a year of big changes for them in response to Regulatory Bodies, Challenger Banks and consumer demands.

I agree Clive

What I believe we will find is the majority of Account holders reacting more responsively will be from disenfranchised situations

We got a great model for a challenger bank. The profit yield by the banks is not the problem as such because one needs profit to provide incentive and to oil the cogs - it is fairly low on Capital Employed. Their challenge is that they have high overhead and consequently operating costs to provide the services people have wanted and required.
Now we have the opportunity to work in tandem and leverage the services through their system at a low cost and that is going to be of huge benefit. It will take a long while before systems adjust to the digital systems and I know that I will always carry fiat currency probably for the rest of my life but the majority of my transactions are electronic. I have a bigger challenge with the finance companies that offer loans at extortionate interest loans and they really keep the poor even poorer. Here we will make a huge difference with micro-loans etc. Exciting times!

And a similar story on Stuff regarding these scumbag banks making record profits.
I wonder how much of this is O/D fees? Essentially taking money from people that have no money.
So, I would agree Clive... we need an alternative bank.

Frega applying for a Banking Licence has always been an exciting aspect of the recent developments for many obvious reasons especially that it is the gateway facilitating business and personal transactions, forex etc at a much lower cost and still interact with the rest of the standard banking sectors. Here is an interesting link that deals with how profitable this sector has been last year - enjoy
