How will your bank respond to participate in the growing digital lending opportunity and not lose revenue?  Former Citibank CEO Vikram Pandit points out that community and regional banks can easily provide competitive digital lending services where they keep and own relations and loans with technology partners.  “I can't imagine banks aren't looking at that and saying, 'Oh my god, I can do this cheaper and better,'" he said, and compete with marketplace lenders.
