Unbanked and Underbanked Consumers in the U.S., 4th Edition

Financial technology, mobile-forward product execution, and regulatory change are reshaping how traditional banking and alternative financial services (AFS) providers tailor products and services to unbanked and underbanked consumers. Momentum is on the side of product innovation, bringing a host of products to market that can meet unbanked needs in cost-effective and sustainable ways, while regulatory change has the potential to jump-start renewed involvement among major financial services players. Since “unbanked” can mean many things, depending on the demographic profile, success involves segmenting the unbanked into more discrete target audiences and targeting products and services accordingly.

Unbanked and Underbanked Consumers in the U.S. provides industry participants the insight they need to help serve unbanked and underbanked consumers. The report does the following:
  • To assess the relationship of the unbanked with the broader financial services market, the report leverages custom survey research to segment unbanked consumers in two ways: unbanked (those without checking/savings accounts; and institution unbanked (unbanked consumers who have not used a bank for other products or services in the past 12 months). Where possible, analysis related to the unbanked is trended from 2008 to 2015.
  • Explores two distinct groups—unbanked Hispanics and unbanked 18-34s—and their financial services relationships, including loan usage, type of banks used, language spoken in the home, foreign-born status, credit score. Analysis extends to remittances, prepaid cards, and other product solutions.
