For your convenience, Packaged Facts has specially prepared a PowerPoint presentation of tables to accompany Non-traditional Financial Services Markets in the U.S.: Unbanked and Underbanked Consumers . To facilitate further exploration, all slides include page references to the original report.
Non-traditional Financial Services to the Unbanked, Underbanked and WhyBank? in the U.S. documents and analyzes financial services product usage by unbanked, underbanked and convenience/price driven consumers (WhyBanks?). It examines consumer demographics, market size by product category and promotional initiatives and strategies used to gain market share and to establish new products through sales channels.

While market research studies have traditionally focused on immigrants’ use of wire transfer services and the underbanked’s use of check cashing outlets and payday lenders, the huge untapped growth area for non-traditional financial services is among young consumers cherry-picking channels and products and services based on price and convenience and among a growing consumer segment roiled by credit woes, economic constraints resulting from declining incomes, receding employment opportunities and a surging vortex of rising healthcare and medication costs crossing with disappearing employer provided health insurance. These consumer stress points compromise the credibility and brand strength of mainstream financial players.

The report provides five year forecasts of market size for the overall nontraditional financial services market, payday lending industry revenues and transaction volumes for money orders, peer-to-peer lending, wire transfers and prepaid debit cards.

Non-traditional Financial Services to the Unbanked, Underbanked and WhyBank? in the U.S., a new report from Packaged Facts, analyzes the U.S. market for nontraditional financial services targeting the unbanked, underbanked and WhyBank? consumer segments. The report identifies the composition, behaviors and psychographics of each population and then focuses on the companies and products targeted to each group. Finally, the report analyzes current marketplace initiatives devoted to capturing these consumers and their income devoted to financial services product usage.

The analysis of consumer demographics and product usage rates primarily derives from the Simmons Market Research Bureau (New York, New York) Fall 2006 consumer survey.
