Neobanks for Business
The enduring profitability and traction that neobanks have in the SME market, when consumer-focused neobanks struggle for sufficient business volumes, suggests an underserved market quite willing to go through digital channels.
For instance, Judo Bank, which has been listed recently, is the most successful Aussie neobank that focuses on SMEs instead of consumers. It retains a banker-led loan arrangement, with all loans enabled by an integrated cloud-based tech stack that allows for rapid decisioning by bankers.

While offering little direct benefit to clients, the features are usually cost-free, giving corporate treasuries useful talking points. Asia-Pacific companies are at the forefront of incorporating ESG principles into long-term investment decisions.

Banks need to be able to incorporate from third parties or create reliable data with which to prudently digitize much of the relationship/personnel lending of the business bank. Banks that can do this will be able to develop, customize, and more keenly price their loans to ever more discrete sectors and types of firms. For instance, Fintech Waddle focuses on digital lending solutions for SMEs. It was founded to provide automated, flexible, and transparent invoice financing to even the smallest of firms. Furthermore, Geora provides agri-supply chains with simple tools to record, share, and finance agricultural assets on farms and across the value chain.

Markets in Asia-Pacific are world leaders in the digitization of shopping. M-commerce is taking over as the growth engine of eCommerce. However, in Asia-Pacific, New Zealand and Japan are below global averages of m-commerce uptake.

Merchant Acquiring & BNPL
While consumer credit such as BNPL is not attractive to lenders, these firms’ attractiveness to merchant partners will increase. The increased settlement risk being assumed by BNPL firms, along with quick payment, will be much more valuable to merchants during periods of higher unemployment that typically occur.
Additionally, all BNPL providers aim to act as a marketing and customer acquisition tool for their merchants in addition to offering payment/financing support. Super-app strategies or community-based marketing and promotions are two such means.

“The GlobalData platform is our go-to tool for intelligence services. GlobalData provides an easy way to access comprehensive intelligence data around multiple sectors, which essentially makes it a one-for-all intelligence platform, for tendering and approaching customers.
GlobalData is very customer orientated, with a high degree of personalised services, which benefits everyday use. The highly detailed project intelligence and forecast reports can be utilised across multiple departments and workflow scopes, from operational to strategic level, and often support strategic decisions. GlobalData Analytics and visualisation solutions has contributed positively when preparing management presentations and strategic papers.”
Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk
“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”
Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB
Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.
Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered
Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.
I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.
I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.
Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan
“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.
Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”
Senior Account Manager, TSYS
GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise. The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.
I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.
One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
