Mobile banking helps “financial empowerment”

Mobile banking means you can manage your money on the go. But how are people actually using it? And is it changing the way they manage their money?


The ING International Survey Financial Empowerment in the Digital Age offers some answers, as survey lead author and ING senior economist Ian Bright explains.

On time banking
Bright says the survey of almost 12,000 people in 12 countries shows most of those using mobile banking actually do so most often in their own home.
“No matter which location they chose to do their banking at, our ‘mobile bankers’ are feeling the benefits,” he says.
Changes include checking account balances more often (84%), feeling more in control of money (66%) and paying bills on time more often (62%).
