Study on Cards and Payments Market: Debit Card Deep Dive
This was a high-level study, requiring consulting skills, where we had to develop suggestions for debit card product strategies. The study analysed card and payment markets with a more detailed focus on debit card innovations. A top-down analysis methodology that consisted of three phases was followed throughout the study. In the first phase, we mapped out the current payment market landscape and identified key trends using a blend of qualitative and quantitative frameworks. In the second phase, we developed a multilayer screening methodology to identify and classify key innovations in the debit card market. These innovations were further filtered through a qualitative framework, highlighting potential revenue generation, cost reduction, and customer service improvement opportunities. In the final phase, we built in-depth multi-variable models and applied Monte Carlo simulation to forecast 5-year NPV for selected ideas. The client was delighted with the final results.
