The financial crisis of the 2008, was followed by period of growth that was buoyed by the fiscal stimulus, and now growth may be just beginning after many years of low growth. Capital investments have yet to revive. Infrastructure financing has proved to be particularly problematic to the bigger banks, but especially the public sector banks. They also have the challenge of protecting their organisational boundaries for task performance. The emergence of newer modes of payment and transfer, of the social media, of all pervasive IT and big data need recognition and response. Regulatory changes, bring newer players into the business, puts pressure on banks and FIs. Business as usual is excluded today, and the key to bring responsiveness is leadership and organisation.
