Four characteristics of a FinPartner
Financial Institutions | Kennett Square, PA
SummaryThis piece written for ABA Banking Journal discusses the four characteristics to evaluate the next time you search for a suitable FinPartner.
Bankers and industry leaders who live and breathe the partnership model are made up of resilient individuals, institutions and solution providers. They place the needs of their customer first. By consistently serving their customers with excellence, they earn the role of trusted partner. What about third-party service providers: the new FinTech opportunity knocking on your door, your established core provider, an advisor, a correspondent banker? Does it matter to you how they approach their relationship with you, your customers, their customers and industry stakeholders? Adding partnership-oriented selection criteria may serve you well during your vetting process. In this article, we examine four characteristics (and examples of an anti-partner mindset) to evaluate the next time you are searching for a suitable FinPartner.
