Financial Services Audiences We Research

All good research starts with speaking to the right people. As B2B market research specialists, getting access to the relevant financial services sector target audiences is our stock-in-trade.

We place the utmost importance on the quality of the data we collect – whether it’s online, by telephone or face-to-face. Below are just some of the audiences we can help you to access:

Specifiers and end users

These are the people who specify and use financial services solutions within their organizations. Their roles vary according to the size of the business and include Finance, Administration, Legal/Compliance, Accounts, and IT/Information Systems. This audience is typically reached online or over the telephone, and occasionally face-to-face with focus groups.

Senior decision makers

In most organizations, decisions on financial services will involve a senior member of a functional or executive team, e.g. CFO, CTO, CEO, VP Finance, Company Director, etc. These people have insights that are well-suited to qualitative research. The telephone is the primary methodology used to reach and interview them.

Brokers and intermediaries

Financial services are often sold through channel partners such as brokers. This audience can yield insights about the companies whose services they represent and the companies to whom they sell solutions. We typically reach these channel partners by telephone.

Product and service providers

It may be necessary to target financial services providers themselves in order to satisfy the research objectives. These companies may also utilize business services providers, e.g. to outsource processes. We have researched decision makers at banks, credit unions, insurance companies, and tax/accounting firms. Job roles range from analysts to the C-Suite and such efforts typically require a telephone or online methodology.
