“In order to grow professionally, you have to accept new challenges. This was one of the main reasons why I chose to connect my future professional activities with Luminor,” Oskars Lakšēvics explains. “The second reason is that this is a challenging time for every sector of the economy, but especially for the financial sector. A number of factors have coincided almost at the same time that will have a significant impact on banking operations in the coming years, such as: fintech development, digital transformation, anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing measures, impact of Covid-19. In addition, two new generations of consumers have grown up in the Baltics, whose lifestyle and technology skills are significantly different from those of previous generations and who are willing and able to try foreign financial services as well. All this makes banks change faster not only in the Baltics, but also in elsewhere in the world. Therefore, I hope that with my professional experience I will be able to make a valuable contribution during the transformation of Luminor.”
