Sweden has a competitive market for most financial products, with only Swedbank maintaining a dominant position in the provision of current accounts, savings accounts, and mortgages. Overall, consumers are cautious in their choice of provider, favoring those with strong reputations and nearby branches. However, comparisons between life stage segments differ significantly. Young Swedish consumers are much more inclined to act on recommendations than older consumers. Swedish consumers demonstrate higher price sensitivity relative to other markets. Digital self-service channels are the most popular channels for day-to-day banking activities, with telephone and branch channels used for more complex tasks. Fintech usage will soon become mainstream in Sweden. Home ownership is the number one savings goal in 2016, while borrowing to cover everyday living expenses has seen high year-on-year growth.
Among consumers as a whole, reputation, branch location, and price are the three most influential drivers across all products. With the exception of savings providers, Swedish consumers do not favor local brands over international brands.
Recommendations are the most influential factor for young consumers choosing a current account provider.
Overall, the majority of growth in all product areas is driven by small players gaining market share at the expense of large providers
The younger family segment is the most restless of the life stages, as highlighted by our Megatrends framework and their propensity to switch providers. Our data suggests they are seeking more flexible products and services that suit their circumstances better.
