The market for financial products in Italy is less concentrated than in other countries. With the exception of Intesa Sanpaolo and UniCredit, few providers have a significant market share. Across all products, the branch is still the key acquisition channel, although online is making inroads in the savings market. Mobile banking is still in its infancy, although a few providers are introducing mobile onboarding, and high smartphone ownership rates bode well for future adoption.
- Every one of the main current account providers in Italy – barring ING – has a negative NPS rating, with BNP Paribas and UniCredit the weakest performers.
- Only around half the proportion of post-families use mobile on a weekly basis compared to other segments.
- Consumers are concerned with being treated honestly by the brands they use, as well as using companies that have established track records.
