Customer Acquisition Report

The Customer Acquisition Report has been compiled with research from over 6,500 UK adults and 20+ providers of online investment services.

The report is an invaluable aid to those working on their direct to customer proposition. We start with a focus on the consumer. What people have, what they think, which brands they would use and what attracts them to products and providers. We have done a deep dive into segmentation and look at customers by age, wealth, income and gender as well as several life stages. 

We also deliver a detailed review of the marketplace today, by provider type. Looking across banks, robos, traditional platforms, life companies and asset managers, we identify spend across all media channels, and look at overall acquisition costs. By mapping the provider spend and approach to the consumer research, we can start to track success and see what works.

The report is key reading not just for marketeers but for any director of an investment brand working out how to compete in the non-advised space. We’re also able to tailor our findings based on your own segmentation models.
