Frequently asked questions
Banks generate $850 billion in revenue, around $14 billion in accounting profit and $10 billion per year in economic gain from the small and medium business sector. Nearly $92 billion additional revenue in Embedded Finance and a sector set to grow by approximately 7% growth annually over the next seven years, this sector is one of the largest, lowest-risk profit pools in the entire industry.

One of the key challenges for businesses is funding, where financial institutions have not been able to lend due to a lack of information, the process was too slow, or the business needs were sometimes outside the bank’s risk tolerance. Considered high-risk with little potential to grow, small businesses have also been turned away from many banks due to onerous onboarding processes. Additionally, as businesses have diverse and complex needs, banks have struggled to service this market segment offering them a blend of retail and corporate solutions that do not fit their evolving needs.
Businesses are hungry for advice and insight, but financial institutions don’t always have the specialist knowledge to be able to help the business to start and grow:
Building a full business credit report for a small to medium business is a manual and time consuming, with 2 to 8 hours average time for credit file preparation*
On a scale of 1 – 10, businesses do not trust big banks to act in their best interests, with only a 2.26 rating of trust extended to their current primary lender*
Increased competition from tech-first Fintech and non-bank entrants, 43-32% of small to medium businesses are considering switching to a challenger bank or Fintech*

Small and medium businesses are often faced with challenges such as:
• Time: not having enough time
• Growth: need for knowledge to define the best strategy to grow
• Cashflow: and get access to resources as they need them
Achieving this change requires institutions to stop selling banking and start selling embedded finance. This translates into embedding their products into a small business’s workflow and enhancing their data analytics offering with third-party data. To be game-changing requires delivering intelligent finance through AI and machine learning (ML). Financial institutions able to apply AI/ML at scale to personalize their services and deliver prescriptive analytics will realize a sustainable competitive advantage:
• Think beyond banking
• Digitalize key processes
• Partner with small business specialists
• Implement agile, modern and open payments infrastructure
