Study: People Trust Electronic Payments More than the Financial Industry as a Whole

According to the 2015 Edelman Trust Barometer study, the financial sector is the least trusted sector… except when it comes to electronic and mobile payments.

When the financial crisis hit in 2008, people’s trust in financial services plummeted. Although a hard time for the whole world, the crisis acted as a catalyst for a hot debate over the incumbent financial institutions and how badly the industry needs change. The study shows that people feel the mobile payments industry has responded quickly to shield consumers from liability on card fraud and is working collectively to protect financial systems on a broader front. In virtually every other example studied, there was less trust in innovation than in the sector as a whole.

That means people are less afraid of technical innovation in the financial sector than they are of the prospect of the situation staying as it is.

Transparency and trust are important to Monese and that’s why we are vocal proponents of change in the industry. Here’s how we want to contribute to that change ourselves:
