In the early years of the this century (around the period 2000-2005), talks of interconnected banks, cheque at par, internet banking, and mobile banking would have been sounded off as pure science fiction!
ICICI Bank was a pioneer in the banking industry and heralded many such firsts in the country. The Wiser Talk brings a glimpse of the exciting reinvention, transformation, and innovation journey of Indian banks.
The guest for this conversation is Sudapalli JP Rao, is an acknowledged Banking veteran and is currently the VP- BFSI at Wizergos.
He speaks on the ascendancy of several path-breaking innovations in banking from early 2000s to the recent times.
He touches upon the journey of banks as they expanded their horizons from urban to semi-urban areas and from core established products to novel financial products for SMEs and consumers from unexplored terrains of the country.
He also recounts how technology was leveraged as the mainstay for this expansion and innovation drive.
