Trevor Russell

Teaching finance can be a hard sell these days. Students have a lot to learn across a plethora of subjects, so why should they take finance lessons on top of all that other pressure? And what will make it easier for them to engage in the subject?

There is little doubt that technology is changing the way the way that the banking industry does business. nearly £3 million is transferred every week by 23 million customers who use banking apps in the UK, and the ongoing decline of branch transactions means that banks are increasingly investing in online and e-solutions to support their customer interactions. The rising and powerful influence of the digital consumer has led to a fundamental shift in banks' business models.
