Wallet Share – The prime focus for retail banks in the 21st Century

Traditionally, market share has been the dominating figure which banks focused on, and as such these institutions centred their operations on new customer acquisition. Despite its substantial status, a large number of financial services are now shifting their focus to a different indicator. Rather than concentrating on the percentage of population a company occupies, the ‘new kid in town’ explores the amount a customer spends with a company and wallet share is what they have named it.

Who should attend this event?

The Asian Banking Forum: East Asia conference is a unique platform for senior-level banking executives from Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Japan and further afield to develop strategies for digital transformation and customer engagement.
