However, they also need to be aware of obstacles, such as customer inertia, that stand in their way.
* Strengths that can provide non-traditional entrants with a competitive edge over established banks, such as expertise in customer analytics.
* Weaknesses that such providers need to deal with, such as high levels of customer inertia and the difficulties faced in selling advice-led products.
* Opportunities that will benefit these institutions, for example technological developments lowering the costs of entry.
* Threats that exist to the wellbeing of new, non-traditional providers, such as lack of expertise in the provision of financial services.
