Next week, we will release the first annual Mobile Leaders report assessing the top mobile platforms offered by banks, credit card issuers, brokerages and asset management firms. The report features in-depth platform reviews and a comprehensive best practices summary. The following are a few of the key findings from the report:
- Tablets – specifically the iPad – have exploded in popularity in the past year. All of the leaders in the Bank & Card and Brokerage segments offer iPad apps.
- Peer-to-peer payments continue to move from firms’ private sites to their mobile platforms, and remote deposit capture is quickly becoming a feature that consumers expect from their mobile banking and brokerage platform.
- Several brokerages earned their place among our leaders in no small part due to advanced mobile charting capabilities – full-screen charts with comparisons and technical indicators.
- Brokerage industry leaders provide access to a variety of tradable products and order types. Stocks, ETFs, mutual funds and options are all popular.
The Mobile Leaders report is included in our Mobile Monitor subscription service and also available for purchase as an individual report. For a preview, download a report excerpt:
