The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting lockdowns have severely impacted the finances of millions of customers globally. The pandemic has also changed how customers bank, get insurance, and manage their finances. In addition to these COVID-19 changes, governments, regulators, and shareholders are now demanding higher standards and mandating financial services firms to better serve and protect customers. Financial services providers need to redefine their sense of purpose, adopt more socially responsible and sustainable business models, and put customers’ financial well-being at the core of their strategy to drive customer engagement, create new value, and future-proof their revenues.

We created a collection of our financial-well-being-focused research to help financial services firms understand how they can develop a financial well-being program.
