Generation Y Banking Behaviors and Attitudes: Expanding the
Banking Relationship on Their Terms

Description:    This report urges financial institutions to break from the typical stereotype about reaching out and
                acquiring Generation Y consumers through electronic means only, providing in-depth analysis of
                new quantitative data that more broadly examines the banking behaviors and attitudes of
                Generation Y. This detailed study reveals how banks should address Gen Y’s desire for multichannel
                availability, time savings and financial management partnerships that will necessitate product,
                market and servicing variations that resonate with this lucrative population. A focus on long-term
                strategies for acquiring Gen Y early on in their banking lives and an examination of successful
                online marketing collateral round out this comprehensive report.

                Primary Questions
                - How profitable is the Gen Y account holder to a bank or credit union?
                - Through what channels can financial institutions (FIs) most effectively engage and retain
                Generation Y account holders?
                - What are the factors that motivate Generation Y to engage in and remain with an FI?
                - When should banking institutions begin building relationships with Generation Y consumers to
                maximize acquisition and retention?

                Audience: Financial institutions: marketing, new customer acquisition, online banking/eCommerce,
                channel strategy
