CBW Bank sharpens focus on digital banking, fintech collaboration

When Suresh Ramamurthi bought CBW Bank in 2009, right after the financial crisis hit, he made sure to keep in his possession a unique artifact to display in the bank's lobby.

That artifact just happened to be a knife sharpener farmers used when they visited the Weir, Kansas-based institution. The sharpener dates back to the early 1900s when the bank first opened its doors. 

The artifact serves as a reminder of CBW's past and helps remind Ramamurthi where the bank is today, which has become an innovation playground of sorts in the banking industry.

To make that happen, Ramamurthi created when he calls a banking marketplace that enables other companies, such as fintech firms, to fill in the gaps via APIs in CBW's offerings, particularly on the lending side where compliance can be complicated for a single-branch bank. 

Ramamurthi shared CBW's story Wednesday in Chicago during a keynote address at Networld Media Group's Bank Customer Experience Summit. Networld publishes Mobile Payments Today.

The U.S. Commerce Department said domestic retail sales rose 0.1 percent in August, the smallest gain in six months, but July figures were revised higher, supporting the view of solid consumer spending in the third quarter.

Consumer spending, which accounts for two-third of the U.S. economy, will likely hold firm as consumer optimism improved to its strongest since March, according to the University of Michigan.

Another bright spot was a 0.4 percent increase in industrial output last month. Friday's data offset inflation data this week which fell of expectations, causing traders to dial back their bets that inflation is accelerating, analysts said.

The data also lifted Treasury yields, with the 10-year yield touching 3 percent for the first time in six weeks. At 11:16 a.m., an index that tracks the dollar against six major currencies was up 0.3 percent at 94.81, trimming its weekly decline to 0.6 percent.

The euro climbed to a two-week high earlier on Friday following the disappointing U.S. inflation data before retreating against the greenback. The common currency was down 0.5 percent at $1.1632.
