  • To better understand consumers' views on data being used to identify vulnerable circumstances, Barclays commissioned GfK to conduct in-depth consumer research on this topic. This explored individuals' attitudes towards their bank using their data to make decisions about them, with a particular focus on vulnerability, and makes recommendations for how and when a bank should intervene to offer support to its customers. 

    Headline findings from the research include:

    • Banks have high levels of trust to treat customer data securely and responsibly;
    • There is greatest endorsement for banks contacting customers to offer support where data shows actual and clear financial detriment;
    • Views are mixed where data shows potential financial detriment or vulnerable circumstances;
    • Clear information regarding the purpose of data use is crucial, people are likely to want choice over this use of data;
    • There are clear ways in which identification of vulnerable customers could lead to intervention from banks that ultimately support customers in managing money now and in the future.
