Personetics AI fuels Tandem’s digital insights
Powered by Personetics’ Cognitive Banking Brain, the bank will integrate the new offerings within its digital banking.
Tandem’s chief executive, Ricky Knox says: “Together with our use of open banking we can use AI to get to know our customers better, predict their needs, and help them make better decisions about their money with as little effort as possible on their part. We want to do the heavy lifting for them, so they can go about their lives and not worry about day-to-day finances.”
Examples of personalised insights delivered by the Personetics solution include unusual spending activity; tips on how to avoid fees; and opportunities for savings or investment.
Knox adds: “While AI is promising, it was important for us to work with a partner such as Personetics that has proven experience in financial services. The Personetics Cognitive Banking Brain provides advanced AI capabilities with prebuilt insights that are fine-tuned for the financial domain.”
AI and acquisition
Last week, Personetics’ Cognitive Banking Brain was behind Israel Discount Bank’s new AI-powered digital financial assistant Didi.
Didi will provide customers with view of their finances, manage their day-to-day banking activities, and offer insights and advice. It is a free service available to all of the bank’s customers through its mobile app – and is powered by Personetics’ AI and predictive analytics capabilities.
Last month, Tandem acquired Harrods Bank following regulatory approval.
Tandem says it will “benefit from around £80 million of capital coming into the business”. It will provide Tandem with a banking licence and Harrods’ customers. The deal also brings it a £375 million mortgage book and over £400 million of deposits.
