  • A Big Bank Should Buy Robinhood Now

    Jim Bruene
    16 Mar 2015 | 3:00 pm
    Free stock-trading startup Robinhood has been getting a lot of press lately, and it appears to be well deserved. Founded in 2013, the company, has raised $16 million and is likely looking for more. Although many fintech startups have attracted 9-figure investments, none has as many celebrity investors. Rappers Snoop Dog and Nas are on board as is Academy Award winner Jared Leto. The company also boasts several tech celebs: Aaron Levie of Box, Dave Morin of Path and Finovate/FinDEVr alum, Howard Lindzon. But back to the premise. Look at the reported metrics…

But who isn't overloaded with missives from social media, news feeds, spambots and whatever else is competing for your attention.Banks need to help users cut down on the noise, by offering smart alerts that don't bog you down in trivial details.

  • Tuesday Tactics: Creating a Winning Confirmation Page

    Jim Bruene
    17 Feb 2015 | 11:12 am
    Over the years, I've rarely been impressed with the confirmation pages displayed after a user takes an action, especially completing an online loan or product application. Today, I came across a good example of a post-sale confirmation screen from RedBubble (see screenshot below), an online purveyor of smartphone cases, laptop skins, and so on (see inset). Notice the things they do right:1. Thank you for the order 2. Mockup of the receipt with big "PAID" stamp across it3. Specific details on what happens next4. Social sharing tool (may not be applicable to financial institutions,…

So without further ado:Capital One 360 continues the tradition of Black Friday banking promotions used by its predecessor ING Direct (previous posts). The direct bank unit of Capital One sent its first promotional tease three days before Thanksgiving (Monday afternoon, 24 Nov 2014). It simply said to watch the site for specials beginning after midnight (Eastern Time) on Thanksgiving night. The bank has been using a…

  • Kleiner Perkins wins partial verdict in Ellen Pao gender discrimination suit

    Cromwell Schubarth
    27 Mar 2015 | 3:43 pm
    A jury ruled Friday that Menlo Park venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers didn't discriminate against a former junior partner, Ellen Pao. But there weren't enough votes to settle a separate claim that the firm retaliated against Pao for complaining about gender bias. An 8-4 majority said the firm did not retaliate against her, which Judge Harold Kahn ruled isn't enough for a verdict so he sent the jury back to deliberate more on that issue. The six-man, six-woman jury delivered…

    No sooner do we post an article about how the dearth of new bank charters appears to be a critical (if not the critical) factor in the phenomenon known as "the incredibly shrinking community banking universe" than out of the chute pops a new community bank (paid subscription required). Primary Bank is just the second new bank to be approved in more than four years, and charts a potential path for other applicants to follow. The approval, which was reported last week, came more than a year after regulators signed off on Bank of Bird-in-Hand in Pennsylvania in late 2013. "This…

    Most bankers I know always love to receive a helping hand from federal law enforcement officials in making their daily lives just a little bit better. That's why I'm sure that most bankers smiled wide when an Assistant US Attorney General recently told a gathering of bankers that when it comes to reporting suspicious activity, a SAR is often not nearly enough. “The vast majority of financial institutions file suspicious activity reports when they suspect that an account is connected to nefarious activity,” said assistant attorney general Leslie Caldwell in a Monday speech,…

Not surprisingly, the nonbank is doing just fine, thanks for asking (paid subscription required). Such cases have been rare up to this point. Such cases have been rare up to this point.

The recent judgment against PNC in St. Louis ought to hammer home that point. A jury in federal court here on Monday awarded $491 million in damages in a civil lawsuit sparked about seven years ago by the collapse of a Clayton-based company selling prepaid funerals. After a five-week trial, the jury awarded $355.5 million of compensatory damages and $35.5 million in punitive damages against PNC Bank and $100 million…

  • What Do These Business Financial Terms Mean?

    Meryl Evans
    19 Mar 2015 | 2:25 pm
    There’s a lot of confusion when it comes to business financing options as financing services companies can get creative with the names they use to describe the types of financing they offer. Part of that is for a good reason. Not all small business owners know what kind of financing they want or need especially when banks don’t come through. Because of this, financial services companies use simple terms such as flexible funding or flexible financing. Invoice financing, accounts receivable financing and MCA funding mean little to business owners. Small businesses know they need working…

    A company’s executives came across excessive cell phone bills, so they asked their manager to review the bills. Naturally, the first thing most people thought was that some employees may be abusing their cell phones to make personal calls. That wasn’t the case. After doing a little detective work, the manager figured out that the high phone bills resulted from employees having different usage needs and working in different locations. One employee, a frequent traveler, racked up roaming charges whenever he traveled to another country. The company found a better plan to fit the employee’s…

    5 Mar 2015 | 1:05 pm
    This post’s title sounds like a quote from one of those inspiring posters with a stunning photo and an inspirational quote. It’s true that it’s better to flop than to avoid something or play it safe in fear of failure. Do this, and it’ll be tough to grow your business. “I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.” – Michael Jordan It’d be tough for you to find someone who doesn’t speak highly of Michael Jordan’s basketball career.

    Meryl Evans
    3 Mar 2015 | 5:57 am
    I bought a product at a store that I visit about once a year. The store is pricey, but has unique products that I can’t find anywhere else. It’s not far, but it’s not as close as its competitors. While there, I always pick up pop snacks. They’re tasty and you get a big bang for the munch in a single pop. On this visit, I brought home a few flavors. All of them were their tasty, crunchy selves except one. Every bite lacked crunch as if it was past its sell-by date. (It wasn’t.) And both bags of the same flavor had the problem. Considering all the other flavors were good and it was…

    Depositing large amounts of cash in your bank account has the potential to be problematic in more ways than one. If you run a cash business, make extra money from a hobby or you’ve received a large cash gift, here’s what you need to know before heading to the bank. Some banks impose a limit on how much cash you can deposit each day.

That means that as long as you’re…

    April 15th is getting closer and if you haven’t paid your taxes yet, you don’t have much time to spare.

  • Square’s $Cashtag. Smart. Very Smart.

    Carol Coye Benson
    26 Mar 2015 | 3:05 am
    Smart. Very Smart. I applaud Square’s introduction of “$Cashtags” for a number of reasons. First, some of you may know that I am a bit of a nut when it comes to brand names in payments – I think it is incredibly important that the sending and receiving party both know/understand the word being used for the payment. This can be a generic (“small b”) brand – “Do you take checks?” or a “big B” brand – “I’ll pay you with AmEx”. But both parties need to understand the term! This is a surprisingly important barrier to entry for payments startups. So Square is expanding…

    George Peabody
    24 Mar 2015 | 7:40 am
    EMV and its moving parts presents a far more complex payments method for merchants, ISVs, payment processors, and financial institutions than the good old magstripe. It continues to have ramifications throughout the payments ecosystem. As Executive Director of the Smart Card Alliance and director of the EMV Migration Forum, Randy Vanderhoof has shepherded a sometimes fractious payments industry as well as encouraged a a skeptical merchant community toward EMV adoption.

  • Nothing More Social

    Carol Coye Benson
    19 Mar 2015 | 3:18 am
    I read the Facebook announcement of payments through Messenger with interest, and just a touch of “about time”! After all, there is nothing more social than sending money to family and friends. And although much attention is paid in the press to the friend-to-friend use cases, I suspect that the family-to-family opportunities are much greater. Not just kids’ allowances, but the whole wide world of both occasional and ongoing support payments among relatives. And how nice that it could easily solve that vexing problem of thank-you notes after sending off the birthday check. Looking ahead…

    The Federal Reserve’s recent announcement that it would not build a new payment rail for processing faster payments created some disappointment for many who are unsatisfied with our country’s current payments system capabilities. In a welcome move, The Clearinghouse (TCH) has announced its intention to fill this void and build new real-time “rails”. There are, however still many unanswered questions about the path forward. How will the new capability work? And what are the implications for other system providers and end users? TCH is a private consortium owned by the nation’s…

  • Get More Out of Twitter for Business

    At a newbie’s first glance, Twitter seems like a big waste of time and only for kids following Tay Tay (Taylor Swift) or the Biebs (Justin Bieber). Believe it or not there is huge opportunity for business people (particularly in a marketing or sales role).

    Give Where You Live…by Being a Mouse? As a child, you probably heard Aesop’s fable of the Lion and the Mouse. It’s the one in which a lion spares the life of a mouse, with the mouse promising to one day return the favor. The lion is skeptical of the mouse’s ability to help—after all, it’s so small. However, after the lion is netted by hunters, the mouse is able to free him by gnawing through the ropes. It’s a story most of us can relate to.
