The banking industry has always been big business in Canada. Last month, the country's largest banks Royal Bank, TD Bank, Scotiabank, CIBC and Bank of Montreal reported combined profits of $7.63 billion in their third quarter, a small slip from $7.8 billion in the same period a year earlier.
"Our research was showing that clients perceive the process at financial institutions, of going through a financial plan and an annual checkup, much like they did going to a dentist," he said from Vancouver.
"Banking has always been competitive as an industry. But, as you look through the economic changes that happened in 2008, it really confirmed to banks, not just in Canada, but globally, that retail banking is the bread and butter of their franchises," said Dyck.
It's an unconventional approach but, in an industry where many of the services on offer are similar, financial institutions are under pressure to find ways to attract new customers or entice them away from the competition.

TORONTO Customers at North Shore Credit Union branches in British Columbia are greeted by a concierge, presented with a hot towel and invited to sit and sip a latte while doing their banking.

Scotiabank (TSX:BNS) recently renovated its branch at Yorkdale Mall in Toronto by equipping it with state of the art ABMs, issuing digital brochures and creating a more open concept environment for advisers to work with customers.
