She considers what mobile banking is today to be just a small subset of what it could be.Boden sees the mobile device as a sort of portable pocket banker, a miniaturized advisor drawing on a multitude of apps that cover every aspect of a consumer’s financial life.She does not see the extinction of banks that others do. She actually sees a kind of rebirth for banks at the intersection of mobile banking, open banking, data sharing, and other trends. Boden sees banks as active clearinghouses and curators.“To visualize how this works, I always imagine a good quality market such as you might find in any town or city center near you,” writes Boden writes in her book The Money Revolution. “This is a place where individuals and small businesses come to sell foodstuffs, from excellent coffee to fine cheeses…. In the future, it is very likely that banks will take the market role, bringing together financial brands and services that they are likewise proud to be associated with them.”last_img read more
