Significant progress in mobile communication technologies, the use of smartphones and card payments contribute to the emergence of new, innovative business models that allow to offer financial services at lower prices and make them more accessible for categories of users who do not have the opportunity to personally visit the office of the financial institution. Mobile and other technologies, together with the agent network and other alternative channels of access to financial services, are key innovations that can provide new opportunities for financial services providers to expand their client base and market presence.
