Huge GenAI Adoption in Banking and Fintech

Generative AI is revolutionizing the way organizations work, boosting growth and unlocking unprecedented levels of productivity. From crafting hyper-personalized marketing campaigns that resonate with individual customers to automating tedious tasks and fostering seamless workforce collaboration, GenAI's applications are rapidly expanding across diverse industries.

This evolution is particularly evident in areas like marketing, where GenAI can generate targeted ad copy and content that drives conversions, and in workforce collaboration, where it can automate repetitive tasks and streamline communication channels.

However, unlike the broader AI landscape, GenAI's implementation has faced challenges in heavily regulated industries like banking and new fintech services. Adapting its capabilities to comply with strict regulations and ensuring data privacy remain key hurdles to overcome.

As these challenges are addressed and GenAI's potential is further explored, we can expect even more transformative applications to emerge, reshaping the future of work and eCommerce innovation.

Financial Services GenAI Market Development

According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, investment in GenAI by banks will reach $85 billion in 2030 -- that's a 1400 percent growth from $6 billion globally in 2024.

Juniper analysts predict the leading banks will adopt GenAI services to offer more personalized user experiences -- enabling them to provide increasingly compelling customer services at reduced cost.

Generative AI platforms learn patterns from training data and can create completely new text, images, and other digital media content. The potential for new GenAI applications is somewhat limitless.

Common use cases include summarizing existing content, or generating new assets for communicating with customers, by utilizing the available data captured in Large Language Models (LLMs).

According to the Juniper assessment, GenAI will enable significant new performance improvement and innovation by providing personalized spending insights and easier access to banking customer trends.

Juniper believes that many banks will increasingly shift to a GenAI-centric strategy, as these business models are essential to competing effectively in a highly dynamic financial services environment.

Bank's investment in GenAI is now vital to ensure that they have enough time to build the highest-value use cases, such as GenAI applications within customer services and back-office support roles.

This GenAI solutions investment will enable more banks to gain a competitive advantage, as their operating costs reduce and user expectations around customer experience shift and evolve.

"Using AI at the heart of operations will enable banks to provide a differentiated and personalized user experience while reducing costs," said Nick Maynard, vice president at Juniper Research.

In contrast, by not making AI a priority today, some banks risk losing ground to fintech competitors.

Outlook for GenAI Banking Applications Growth

Financial services companies have already been utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies within marketing and sales, customer support, risk management, human resource management, and other operations. New GenAI applications are the next wave of innovation.

That said, I believe the application of GenAI will enable banks to offer credit or customized services to their customers by analyzing prior payment data, and also gain additional insights from Open Banking systems.

The upside potential for GenAI-fueled digital business growth is limited only by our imagination, and the creative application of these new enterprise IT automation tools.
