Google’s Study on How Singaporeans Research Financial Products & Services

excerpt: “A Google survey of Singaporean financial research and purchasing habits has found that nearly three out of four or 70 per cent the island state’s residents go online to research financial products and services that interest them...With the current economic uncertainty, financial institutions should enhance their online presence and digital marketing efforts to find new customers and strengthen current customer relationships in today’s cost-conscious consumer environment, said Lori Sobel, head of sales for Google Southeast Asia.

“… At a time when most of their potential customers are researching financial products on the Internet, companies cannot risk missing out on the opportunity to convert them into clients.”
