Report Summary

“The financial services sector is put under more scrutiny during periods of financial uncertainty. Consumers will look for assistance from brands to guide them through this cost-of-living crisis and help them make better decisions that will benefit them financially. Brands that are considered trustworthy or helpful are more likely to garner attention from new consumers, whilst ones that offer rewards for ongoing customers will show how valuable loyal consumers are to them. Trusted and well-known financial services brands will succeed as consumers are likely to avoid unnecessary risk, or the unknown.”
