The opportunities of collaborating with banks on ad-hoc meetings or through specific councils are all great and distinctive characteristics that we at CaixaBank see as a great potential for all members. Overall, being an Efma member allows CaixaBank to be more aware of worldwide trends and to be constantly informed of the latest news in the sector.
An international organization like Efma provides us access to a platform that brings together local, regional,
and global leaders to participate in information-sharing and networking opportunities.
[…] it is vital for our management team to be exposed to the latest trends, innovations, and best practices impacting the banking industry.
As a member of Efma, we are able to enhance our local knowledge by developing a global mind-set to help us incorporate different perspectives as we continue to grow.
Research keeps bank abreast of the retail banking trends and innovations worldwide. These help Philippine National Bank study and explore potential ideas and models applicable to our strategy focused on safe, aggressive growth. We value the opportunity to learn and discuss important industry issues and developments with our peers in the retail business worldwide through Efma.
As members of Efma, we are kept up to date on the latest industry trends and practices through several resources including events, in-depth reports, newsletters, amongst others; we have access to a portal with a great collection of innovation cases and inspiring ideas, where we can also showcase ours; but most importantly, we are able to network with hundreds of other financial institutions to share knowledge and best practices on topics of mutual interest.
Learning is part of my job and something I constantly pursue also in my personal life.
When it comes to professional learning, I have three main sources: attending international conferences (sometimes luckily also speaking there), McKinsey and Efma.
Efma provides members with priceless sources of information, from an opened knowledge base to learning opportunities and knowledge sharing forums.
The progress Efma made in recent times is quite impressive, and I’m sure they will not stop there.
Efma is a great source for curated insights about the industry.
Whether we are looking for research on the latest industry innovations or for in-depth case studies, we find them extremely useful for our business.
The access we get to exclusive events and meetings helps us strengthen our industry network.
I think that being part of Efma is very valuable to enable our bank to connect quickly to the right divisions in other departments and have interesting knowledge sharing discussions. As the Efma representative has relationships with the individuals across the relevant areas in the bank, they are able to put you in contact with the senior leaders in the business you are interested in.
Efma brings together collaborators around the globe who are sincere in building alliances to improve lives through the innovative delivery of financial services. The exchange of insights be it via conferences, articles, topical portals, reports, etc., helps improve efficiency at the bank, and ensure a consistent and superior customer experience journey for our clients.
Efma is a knowledge platform that allows us to access valuable insights, explore new trends and get inspired with new ideas. At Efma we have found very resourceful information to further nurture the discussions of our strategy and consider different perspectives when it comes to define and approach digital challenges in the financial sector.
Being part of Efma is for me being part of a larger community where one can share, network, learn from each other and have access to a diverse set of resources, thus allowing for growth and innovation! Highly Recommended!
PhillipBank decided to join Efma so that we can learn and study from other industry players on the latest trend in banking and digitalization space (…), to be able to serve our customers beyond just their banking needs. Although we recently joined, we already started to see the benefits. By attending the RBAS event and assessing the various papers on Efma website, we have become more aware and conscious of the future trend of the banking industry worldwide. From this awareness, we are now more open to adopt new technology and embrace digitalization process in order to help resolve the pain points of our customers in Cambodia.
