With talk of intelligent machines making the banking experience less personal, at least one major institution is taking a turn in the other direction by letting customers video conference with real people.
The Royal Bank of Canada, Canada’s largest bank, launched its MyAdvisor pilot this week — a feature that lets customers schedule video conferences with financial advisors. The bank said it’s making the move because talking to a real person still matters for their customers. MyAdvisor could be a sign of an emerging consensus that digital banking may always require some form of human connection.
