Summary of our successful case of a bank:

Background of client:

A Fortune 500 bank in Hong Kong

Business Challenges:

The usual tactic for banks to allure new customers from their competitors is offering short-term high-interest rate for saving deposits.

However, nearly all these “reward seekers” withdraw their deposits once the interest rate returns to normal. That means the customer retention rate of these acquired customers is close to zero.

Challenge Statement of the Transformation Project:

How to create a wonderful and iconic experience for retaining high-end customers

Types of Transformations: 

Digital transformation and Service transformation

Duration of Project:

6 months

Strategies for Transforming Business & Resolving Challenges

We transformed the reward seekers to wealth seekers by offering elite support to meet their financial challenges when they need them most. These customers have learned to value these privileges far more than high-interest rates.

Key Performance Indicator(s) of the Project:
  • Customer retention rate
  • Volume of bank deposits
Breakthrough Business Results

The customer retention rate grew to double digits, which means our design thinking strategy helped retain billions of dollars of deposits and investments in the bank.

Our Contribution to the education sector

As one of the market leaders of Business Design Thinking in Hong Kong, it is our pleasure to contribute our case study on Banking Industry (Project title: Creating a memorable experience to retain valued banking customers) to VTC IVE Business Design Thinking Casebook 2020.
