Parajumble asked :
UNTIL six months ago, no self-respecting financial consultant would travel without it: the bar chart showing that the marginal cost of Internet banking transactions was a tiny fraction of the cost of branch banking. It was the chart that launched dozens of stand-alone Internet banks. Unshackled from the cost of real property—and real people—Internet banks would, it was claimed, blow stuck-in-the-mud incumbents out of the water. However, as Roberta Arena, director in charge of the Internet for HSBC, a British banking giant, remarks wryly: “Easy to say; tough to do.”
Now Internet banks around the world are faltering. Part of the reason is that their physical rivals have become wiser, launching their own integrated “clicks ‘n bricks” strategies that offer customers electronic access as well as dark satanic branches. But they are not undisputed winners either. They are finding that the Internet is, at best, a zero-sum game.
