Timetric’s 'Insight Report: Banking the Mass Affluent' analyzes the potential of mass affluent consumers in retail banking industry. Following the financial crisis, banks have been pressurized to re-evaluate their strategies and seek alternative sources of profit as economic conditions declined and competition increased.
