Recently, nCino brought together several of our European Corporate and Investment Banking (CIB) clients to discuss industry trends. During the session, we highlighted how our solution supports CIB lenders in delivering personalised experiences from acquisition through to balance sheet and fostering stronger client relationships.
Navigating Economic Volatility with Legacy TechnologyThe current economic environment, driven by interest rate and other inflationary pressures, is impacting profitability and risk management in CIB lending unlike anything we’ve seen in the last decade. Alongside economic pressures, compliance with evolving regulations remains a top concern and shows no signs of slowing down. Policy changes increasingly need to be enacted in real time – something legacy technology is not equipped to do.

Of the four challenger banking licenses granted by Australian regulators in 2019, only one is still standing – and the Financial Times says it’s growing faster than any other financial institution in Asia-Pacific. At nSight 2023, Judo Bank COO, Lisa Frazier, shared what differentiates Judo Bank and how nCino has been a foundational part of its journey.SME business bank, Judo Bank is on a strong growth trajectory reflected in its lending book that jumped nearly 25% to A$7.5 bn in the six months to the end of December 2022. This growth was recognized in April 2023, when the Financial Times identified Judo as the fourth fastest growing company in Asia Pacific out of the top 500 high-growth businesses in the region.
According to Chief Operating Officer, Lisa Frazier, Judo Bank began in 2016 when a deeply experienced group of bankers who were passionate about the SME economy came together to help establish the challenger bank.
“In 2016, we were a PowerPoint standalone idea. It was very hard to raise money,” she recalls.
Yet two and a half years after getting a banking license in April 2019, Judo listed on the Australian Stock Exchange and continues to grow and scale its business.
