The convergence in technology, mobile communications and regulatory change is shaping how banking and alternative financial services (AFS) providers tailor products and services to unbanked and underbanked consumers, while also causing lines to blur between P2P and remittances and between checking accounts and prepaid cards. In the process, traditional definitions of “unbanked” are being joining by such phrases as “the new middle class” and “tech-savvy college students,” changing target audiences accordingly. Meanwhile, the use of AFS products and services has entered the mainstream, with more than 3 in 10 U.S. adults using at least one type of AFS product in the last 12 months, underscoring the market opportunity for banks and non-banks alike in helping to meet underbanked consumers’ needs.
