I have heard many financial institution executives say that 2021 is the “year of the card” when it comes to loan strategies, and consumer demand appears to be supporting that approach. But to deliver on loan strategies that involve credit cards, financial institutions must be willing to look at credit card offers at all levels.

But COVID-19 has put that disruption on a fast track as these companies use their expertise in technology, consumer intimacy, operations and delivery to quickly deliver the financial services consumers want. To stay relevant and compete, financial institutions need to act on the lessons learned during the pandemic.

Gathering intelligence is the first step in a successful campaign

Among the trends we saw in 2019, one theme was constant: The financial services industry is as competitive as ever. 

New technologies, channels and competitors continually disrupted the market, creating considerable noise for credit unions to break through. Nontraditional players forced credit unions to compete on multiple fronts – technology, lifestyle and branding – in addition to having competitive products and rates.

From 2009 through 2015, anticipated loan demand was on the decline, bottoming out at 19 percent. Since then, the demand has increased sharply. In 2017, 28 percent of consumers reported they anticipated opening a new loan in the next 12 months. Although demand for loans was down slightly in 2018 to 24 percent, it will remain high in the next 12 months. Financial institutions just need to know where to look for it.

Raddon research indicates that for customers who are highly-loyal, the attributes associated with the customer experience that are differentiating are those that involve interacting with employees.  The data suggest that these attributes, including employee skill, understanding of products and services, politeness/friendliness, understanding  issues, accuracy and approachability, are all contributing factors to the strong relationship with the highly-loyal segment.
