It has been eight years since the iPhone launched the “there’s an app for that” mobile movement, yet online and mobile retail banking still applies a one-size-fits-all approach that fails to target the specific needs of segments such as Gen Y, affluent investors, and microbusiness owners. There is no better place to start a segmentation discussion than with Gen Y consumers because they need cost-effective coaching as they face life-altering financial decisions. Perhaps most important, they need help to minimize the counterproductive emotions of money — anxiety, feelings of incompetence, instant gratification, and denial — and counter them with a sense of control, confidence, and empowerment. Javelin’s model for details how to build digital banking on a foundation of time-tested personal finance principles and integrate tools, insight, and advice that will enable customers to develop healthy, lifelong financial habits with every login, in the course of everyday banking. Javelin’s approach structures digital banking as the centerpiece of a consumer’s financial journey that starts with the first paycheck —and positions banks and credit unions as the trusted guide.
