Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) acquired ABN-Amro in 2009 and with this it received a very well reputable cash management solution used by many of the large European corporations. Now in Q1 of 2015, RBS has announced to withdraw their cash management services from Europe. Many European corporations have already confirmed they are now exploring how to replace RBS as cash management bank.
Companies entering into the replacement process of RBS as cash management bank become very much aware of the dependency to banks in relation to cash management products.

Will Fintech fill the void? We need to ask ourselves what we can rely the banks to do in the future?
