FIs Should Prepare for Crowded and Fragmented Multi-Wallet Future in Mobile

Mobey forum logo 140pxIn a new white paper titled "Structures and Approaches: The Changing Face of the Mobile Wallet", the Mobey Forum says that "banks and financial institutions launching mobile wallets in the immediate future should expect to enter a hotly contested market, crowded with own-brand solutions that are limited to the delivery of proprietary services only."

The paper outlines the current range of mobile wallet structures coming to market and outlines some of the key considerations that financial institutions should take into account when evaluating which approach is the most appropriate for them. The paper contends that the majority of financial institutions will, in the short term, attempt to develop their own proprietary wallets in a partner-independent manner.
