Today marks Banking Dive's one-year anniversary as a live publication. Such milestones always invite some level of reflection as to how the banking industry has transformed.
Some things stay the same: A story in our first newsletter detailed Deutsche Bank's plan to cut 18,000 jobs. Fast-forward one year and Deutsche's largest German competitor, Commerzbank, faces its own challenges regarding a path forward.
In between, challengers and tech companies have sought to become banks. Or encroached on banking. Banks have merged, been swallowed by credit unions (or not), and stalwarts have found if they can't beat the upstarts, they should buy them.
Through all of this, Banking Dive grew alongside our readers, aiming to serve as a valued and dependable source of useful information.
It's been a hell of a year. Let's do it again.
