"who can best improve someone’s financial health"

Recomendo vivamente a leitura de "The Lesson From Acorns And Stash: People Don't Want Savings Accounts, They Want Help Saving Money":
"The change in the market isn't with young Millennials opening Neobank accounts (or more accurately, debit-related payment accounts), but with:
Older Millennials and Gen Xers, and
Savings tools like Acorns and Stash.
The overall adoption percentages of Neobanks by generation are small--but the percentage of Older Millennials with a Neobank account is nearly double that of Young Millennials.
In contrast to Neobank adoption, US consumers have opened more than 7 million accounts with fintech savings tools like Acorns and Stash. Importantly, those consumers said those tools helped them save nearly $5.6 billion in 2018.
Among Older Millennials and Gen Xers--and even Baby Boomers--roughly twice as many are using savings tools like Acorns and Stash than have a Neobank account. And among Young Millennials, it's about three times as many.
[Moi ici: O trecho que se segue é muito boa] The lesson here is that consumers want help managing--i.e., improving and optimizing--their financial lives. They don't want an "account" to replace their existing accounts simply because it comes from a digital-only provider..
The relative success of tools like Acorns and Stash provides a clue as to why so many banks haven't seen much success from their personal financial management (PFM) efforts: Tools that monitor or track one's financial life are different from tools that optimize or improve performance.
The lesson from Acorns and Stash's success is that banks will need to compete on who can best improve someone’s financial health (for a given cost)--and not on who has the best rates and fees. The winners will be the financial institutions who can deliver on improving financial health--and prove it."
Por cá, os bancos, a coberto da protecção aos incumbentes, andam entretidos a aumentar ou a criar taxas e taxinhas por serviços. Ou seja, a espremer o modelo de negócio do século passado, em vez de seduzir clientes... uma outra versão de "Cambão versus estratégias baseadas nos clientes-alvo".

Talvez ganhassem alguma coisa em ler "The Problem With Problems"
