As banks look to build their business, they're eyeing wealth management and commercial lending as key areas for revenue growth. When survey participants were asked to pick the three biggest drivers of revenue growth over the next 1-3 years, wealth management was the most favored choice (32%), followed by commercial loans (28%).

Banks have invested heavily in innovation on the retail side of their businesses in recent years, and Stephens expects them to leverage some of that investment to help innovate and deliver new capabilities to commercial and wealth management clients to help drive growth. One area where banks will likely try to leverage their technology gains on the retail side in these other areas is data and analytics.

"With every bank we speak to, data is a top five priority," he said. "Banks recognize that silos and the effect they have on data has slowed their growth and needs to be addressed."

Interesting to see the parallels between insurance and banking. It might seem obvious that they shared a heavy focus on the customer. But in terms of growth, many more insurers seem to be looking to M&A than banks.
