AI’s potential in banking and payments: Opportunities and practical use cases

Artificial Intelligence (AI) provides enormous potential to the banking and payments industry, as evidenced by numerous studies. Notably, NVIDIA’s research indicates that more than 80 % of financial services professionals report that AI contributes to cost reductions and revenue increases.

A study by the European Investment Bank anticipates that adopting AI could lead to a 30 % increase in revenue and a 25 % decrease in costs.

The financial services value chain presents a wide array of potential AI applications to enhance back and front-office operations, aiming to achieve growth and efficiency goals. Key areas of impact include customer engagement (such as improved customer service), forecasting and predictions (for example, predicting loan defaults), and advanced data and risk management.

However, many companies are still in the early stages of AI adoption, facing challenges in navigating its possibilities and translating them into actionable strategies. A systematic approach is essential for evaluating, prioritizing, planning, and executing AI initiatives.

Establishing an “AI playground” for iterative testing of selected use cases represents a crucial initial step towards leveraging AI. This should encompass both technical infrastructure and a robust compliance framework.

This paper presents a robust framework and hands-on use cases to capture AI’s value. It was developed from extensive technical and managerial experience and offers a practical starting point for exploring AI’s potential.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
