I can’t wait to get the ball rolling in showcasing how Dreams’ innovative approach to client engagement and financial wellbeing enhancement can be key to enabling financial institutions to prosper in this increasingly competitive financial landscape.”
Jason Curtis comments: “With my background in the fintech industry, I have witnessed first-hand how banks have lagged behind in terms of emotionally engaging their customers and actually empowering them to feel better about their money. I’m really looking forward to embarking on the company’s mission of helping banks extract value from customer engagement whilst enhancing the financial wellbeing of an entire generation.”
