Case Study: Santander Consumer Finance
Over the past decade Santander has expanded to become the fifth biggest bank in Europe and continues on an upward trajectory with a long-term strategy to consolidate its position by offering superior banking products and financial services as well as investing in digital customer experience to ensure that their clients have total control over their finances.
How Santander wants to become one of the biggest banks

They aim to achieve this by developing a online experience that goes far beyond what is offered by their competitors.
