Brendan Coughlin, Head of Consumer Banking at Citizens Bank

I have been following Citizens Bank for many years as they built this robust online lending operation across multiple verticals. They have also launched an in-house digital bank called Citizens Access and they have a groundbreaking partnership with Apple which has, in many ways, changed the iPhone buying experience. They are a top 25 bank that has the mindset of a fintech.

In today’s world to build a success intermediary business you have to be able to add obvious value to the consumer. While some consumers are happy to shop around for the best deal many want someone else to do the legwork for them. And if that legwork guarantees them the best deal then you can build a successful business.
