Market Report, "Mass Affluents: Product Holding and Preferences in Hong Kong", published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Jun 03 2016

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.

Key Findings

* HSBC holds nearly half of the mass affluent current account market, almost three times as much as the second-placed bank. It has benefited from a dedicated mass affluent banking proposition and a generous welcome package that is related to the number of products arranged.
* Branch location remains the most influential driver of savings provider choice, suggesting that banks need to maintain a physical presence. Mass affluents also have a strong preference for banks that have a longstanding reputation and are financially stable. This gives established banks an advantage over new entrants.
* Just over a third of mass affluent mortgage holders chose their provider on the basis of their product characteristics. Having an existing relationship and personal recommendation were also important drivers of choice, thus confirming the importance of current accounts as gateway products.
