Proactive Consumer Fraud Communications: Don't Call Me, I'll Call You
Contemporary consumers want to have more control over their money. They are demanding more information faster and access to updates on activity taking place on their accounts. They are also becoming increasingly aware of the threat inherent in online transactions. Until recently, bringing the consumer directly into the fraud detection value stream has not been part of most issuers' risk management strategy.
Report highlights include: An analysis of consumer survey results relating to their use and interest in proactive alerts, concerns about fraud, and communication preferences; the evolution of the consumer contact industry including the development of virtual personal assistants to augment consumer self-service channels; a look at the direct-to-consumer fraud alert application, SafePay, a solution designed to appeal to the small and medium enterprise (SME) online merchant and the early adopter, risk-averse consumer; and a discussion of debit card issuers' interest in expanding the services connected to their retail portfolio, which includes these emerging communication technologies that serve to deputize cardholders into the risk management process

The recession has turned many consumers into value-conscious shoppers, and merchants are seeking ways to exploit this mentality to attract new and retain existing customers. At the same time, issuers have an urgent need to create new revenue streams to compensate for declining balances on credit portfolios and reduced interchange revenue on debit portfolios. The combination of these forces is creating an enormous opportunity for merchant-funded network vendors, which have developed technology that can bring issuers, merchants, and consumers together in a way that benefits all stakeholders.
Report highlights include: An overview of the merchant-funded value chain, including major stakeholders, reward types, and the economic framework; Consumer spending volume and issuer revenue estimates for the two major segments of the merchant-funded incentives, including projections through 2015; An analysis of the strategies that credit issuers are using to integrate merchant-funded rewards with proprietary reward programs; a discussion of the major issues that could accelerate or hurt the demand for merchant-funded rewards with proprietary rewards programs; and Profiles of several leading vendors specializing in merchant-funded discount programs

China, the world's second largest economy, is also the world's largest payment card market and projected to surpass the United States as the leader in card payments as early as 2013.At the same time, China's payment market remains closed to foreign companies, and international card networks have also been mostly excluded from the domestic market.
Within this landscape, regulatory changes such as the recent World Trade Organization ruling to open financial markets (including the payment card market) will allow international competition and further change in this dynamic arena.
Highlights from the report include: growth rates for the e-payment market, projections for the total number of credit and debit cards, and their total purchase value; current credit card growth projections; the factors putting banking profit margins under increasing pressure; the fastest growing and most quickly evolving markets and the market dynamics influencing the shifts; and the impact of the WTO ruling on foreign banks and card networks, and possible future actions by both entities
