Why Banks Must Be Proactive in the Cost of Living Crisis

Banking customers are getting hit hard by the cost-of-living crisis, with rising prices putting financial stress on household budgets. People want their banks to provide a higher level of support with personalized advice and money management.  

Personetics recently commissioned a survey of 5,000 banking customers. We found surprising insights about why the cost-of-living crisis is an urgent occasion for financial institutions to support their customers – or risk losing customers to competitors.
