As we have introduced in our previous blog post, the UK offers one of the most vibrant banking sectors in the European region. In particular, online banking is becoming increasingly significant and mobile banking is almost the new normal.
Financial services are typically among the first industries to embrace technological advances going as far back in time as the appearance of the first ATMs and credit cards.
