Mass affluent populations around the world are growing in size, making them an increasingly important segment for financial providers. These consumers possess more financial products than average, maintain higher levels of savings and investments, and are more likely to use added-value services. This makes them an attractive and profitable segment to target.
Websites are the main research channel for mass affluents. Just over a third visited bank websites when researching their most recent savings account, compared to around a quarter of retail consumers. Mass affluents are also more likely to consult third-party websites.
Digital channels are used far more frequently than branches and call centers, with human channels being used for more complex activities. However, AI-based chat bots will allow digital channels to handle such activities more effectively over time.
Mass affluents are more likely to be very satisfied with their online and mobile banking services with respect to functionality, usability, and security than retail consumers.
This may be due to mass affluents using these channels with greater frequency and hence being more familiar with them.
