With fintech competitors on a mission to disrupt traditional financial institutions, giants like Citi and Deutsche Bank are raiding Silicon Valley for potential hires, poaching experts in artificial intelligence, machine learning and distributed ledger technology.

That could mean banking’s culture as a whole might change for the better, or at least become more forward-looking.
