Strategies for banks to respond to COVID-19 by leveraging fintech

COVID-19 will drastically change retail banking. Branch closures and shelter-in-place orders will accelerate the shift to digital channels, forcing financial institutions that haven’t prioritized digital yet to do so.

Point72 Ventures invests in the digital transformation of financial services through fintech enablers that help banks, credit unions, lenders and asset managers to improve their digital experiences. We have investments in MANTLRoostifyDriveWealthFlybitsMXBrace and Nav from the list below.

Below is the start of a list of COVID-19 response strategies and associated fintech companies that seek to help banks and financial institutions respond to this crisis and continue to improve their digital capabilities. There are many incumbent financial technology providers, but we decided to stick to startups for this list.
