Reducing Friction in Online Account Opening with Digital Identity Verification

The Need For A Fully Digital Account Opening Process

In today’s world, banks can no longer rely on branch traffic to generate account openings. New deposit accounts per branch have dropped more than 37% over the past seven years, and an increasing number of accounts are being lost to digital banks that offer a seamless online account opening experience.

With abandonment rates above 50%, financial institutions (FIs) that want to win new customers must figure out how to digitally onboard a customer while minimizing friction and fraud. For many, this means adopting digital identity verification methods.

This 2021 Cornerstone Advisors research report looks at industry trends in account origination and where abandonment occurs, and explores how to reduce friction with digital identity verification in order to decrease abandonment and increase funding.
