The changing social and economic context requires practical action from the financial market participants due to the growing client demand for highly individualized offers and digital comfort in performing basic operations. Today, any incorrect proposal to a client is no longer a cause for a patronizing smile but for irritation and can lead to a quick, and sometimes even complete, rejection of the services of a bank or a financial institution. How to build client strategies and create digital products under the conditions of open offer, approaching API-standardization and the emergence of the universal service "Pay for all!"?
