Singapore has a highly concentrated market for most financial products, with DBS, POSB, and OCBC dominating the provision of current accounts, savings accounts, and mortgages. Consumers are cautious in their choice of provider, favoring those with strong reputations and nearby branches. Mobile is now a significant channel for routine transactions, although use is heavily skewed towards younger age groups. Satisfaction with digital channels is significantly higher than for branches and call centers.
Among consumers as a whole, reputation, branch location, and price are the three most influential drivers across all products. In addition, Singaporean consumers show a preference for local brands.
Borrowers overwhelmingly prefer direct application for mortgages, with 79% of all current borrowers having chosen this option. Singapores mortgage market is expected to grow strongly over the next four years, reaching SGP231.1bn in 2020.
The younger family segment is the most restless of the life stages according to our Megatrend framework. Our data suggests they are seeking more flexible products and services that suit their circumstances better, which is reflected in the fact that theyre more likely to switch providers than other consumer segments.
