Investment Bank INNOVATION LAB

The Consumer Innovation Labs position Investment Bank as a disruptive thought leader by accelerating innovation on our journey to win a customer-centric, digital world.

With very little upfront investment, the Labs are able to test new ideas and solve critical business problems by co-creating with customers in a fail-early, fail-smart process.

The Labs build Proof-of-Concepts (POCs) that are customer-tested and technology-proven, preparing our business partners to be able to quickly and confidently develop Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) of successful concepts to pilot in market. Failed POCs create learning and development that inform future explorations. This work is accomplished by a dedicated Labs team of business, product, design, and technology experts in collaboration with internal and external partners, enabling Investment Bank to continually go beyond customer expectations.
