Financial needs and expectations change and evolve with each new generation. As a bank, we want to be sure we are adapting and meeting the needs of all customers and community members. That is why we want to turn directly to the Gen Z audience and ask: What does the ideal bank look like to you? 

If you were born between 1996 and 2001, this challenge is for you!

How would you design the perfect bank. How would you interact with your bank? What services would be available? Would your bank play a new role in your life?

Help us reimagine banking and share your great ideas!


This challenge is intended for Gen Z participants only. Please only submit a response if you were born between 1996 and 2001.

Tell us what your ideal bank looks like. Specifically, answer the following:

  1. If you could design the perfect bank, what would it look like? Think about the technologies, services, banking products, and/or capabilities the bank would offer.
