Case Study Prompt

Central Bank plans to launch its services as CBT, a completely fintech and innovation-driven arm. It aims to operate as a pure digital banking services offering that would leverage technology tools to offer the services.

The digital bank’s primary services would include consumer retail, corporate cash management, and B2B and business-to-consumer solutions that are offered to local and multinational companies.

Central Bank is willing to invest significantly in technology to add a mass-market business line to its legacy banking services.

The plan is to offer simple, affordable, and accessible products directly or through partners/lending platform.
