  1. "We do not need a financial ecosystem; we are strong enough without."
    A financial ecosystem provides multiple benefits for banks and other financial institutions, including increased customer retention, new forms of revenue, and reduced costs.

  2. "Financial ecosystems slow down growth and innovation."
    In fact, financial ecosystems can transform companies, enabling new forms of innovation that drive growth.
  3. "It is too expensive to build and maintain a financial ecosystem."
    With little technical effort and modern software solutions for digital banking platforms, you can create structures where a financial ecosystem can grow and prosper.
  4. "We cannot cover everything ourselves in one financial ecosystem."
    You do not have to be strong and knowledgeable in every aspect of service provision since ecosystems are based on the idea of collaborating with partners.
  5. "We are too small to set up a successful financial ecosystem."
    Open banking and open wealth management are not only for large institutions. Networks enable small and medium-sized firms to provide a full range of services.
