SpendingPulse™ for financial institutions

Fuel data insight-driven decisions across all financial institution initiatives

Financial institutions must benchmark portfolio performance against retail economic activity, identify where the portfolio is over or under-performing the market potential, and use forecasts to plan marketing strategies.

FI Case study A leading issuer used SpendingPulse™ to identify growth opportunities

A leading issuer needed help contextualizing portfolio spend across key retail categories. The organization wanted to understand benchmarks versus peer credit portfolios and how much total spend (credit, debit, cash) flowed into each retail category. It tried to understand benchmark gaps to inform near-term card promotions. The issuer compared recent spend trends on their cards versus a benchmark from MIC and SpendingPulse™ to identify several opportunities for growth in apparel and home improvement spend.
