Card Trends and Opportunities
Thursday, May 10, 2012
In the aftermath of Durbin, there is renewed focus by large banks on moving customers away from debit and incenting them towards using credit cards, or reloadable prepaid cards, as their preferred payment mechanism. Are consumers responding? To what degree does this interrupt consumer deleveraging, if at all? How will this impact the economics of the card business?
Join Oliver Wyman as they share insights from their recently completed Survey of Consumer Finances (2012). This study draws from a large, nationally representative consumer panel with a strong focus on card-based payment behavior.
What is the opportunity for payments product partnerships in the fast-growing social commercce/local commerce space? How are financial products being used to power social/local commerce today, and what is in store for the near-and medium-term?

Consumers fled credit cards during the Great Recession, paring down debt and relying on signature and PIN debit to fund purchases. However, since the beginning of 2011, consumers have begun to spend with credit cards again. Analysis of First Data's proprietary SpendTrend data shows that this shift has potential to continue, and is taking place with less of an increase in consumer revolving debt, which traditionally has been the case. Merchants and financial institutions (FIs) must align to provide new experiences based on a combination of marketing, support and product offerings that leverages consumers' new mentality, as well as demand for multi-channel products.This presentation will address how the evolving usage patterns for credit offer both challenges and opportunities. Youll hear why consumers returned to credit; new purchasing trends; and the impact on the business.

With consumers still wary of banks, credit unions have a window of opportunity to capture market share from larger fi nancial institutions in their footprint. Well-designed card programs can win new customers, and cardholders are more likely to use other products within the credit union. This panel will discuss:
How credit unions can deliver greater satisfaction among existing members with its card programs
New products that credit unions are increasingly looking to, such as prepaid debit cards
The advantages that credit unions have over banks
Regulation, the debit market, new technologies such as mobile phone capabilities, the conversion to EMV and changing population demographics will all play a part in the future of the prepaid industry. In 2011 we have seen an increase in the use of GPR, payroll and closed loop cards, indicators that more change will come in the next 5 years for this growing and dynamic market. These factors and others will impact how prepaid cards are sold and marketed in a changing landscape. The Aite Group will provide charts and primary research on how the Prepaid industry is evolving.
