The survey of 2,650 actual and potential affinity partners was carried out during the final quarter of 2012 and covers the vast majority of viable affinity distributors in the UK consumer financial services market. The research embraces the following information: • for each affinity group or partner considered, whether it offers the financial product or service in question; • if provided, whether the product or service is offered through one or more partnerships with external companies or in-house (including by means of a sister or subsidiary company); • if provided through one or more partnerships with external companies, the identity of the partner(s) and the nature of the partnership(s).

  7. 7. Affinity and Partnership Marketing in UK Financial Services What is the difference between the unweighted and weighted analyses of partnerships? Finaccords new series of studies on this subject incorporates a new analysis whereby it identifies not only the financial product providers with the most partnerships (overall, and within each category), but also computes weighted provider shares of partnerships in order to highlight the providers that are likely to hold the most valuable relationships given the characteristics of their partners. Within affinity and partner categories (e.g. for banks in isolation), it does this by weighting partnerships in accordance with the UK traffic ranking for each organisations website. Then, across all distributor categories combined, it also takes into account the approximate distribution share of the financial service in question of the category to which the organisations belong, as measured by Finaccords Channel Metrics consumer research, and additionally incorporates the number of organisations in the category that offer the financial service in question so that the distribution share is divided across the number of active organisations. (The precise formulae and workings used can be obtained from Finaccord if needed.) An example of the impact of this approach, illustrating the differences that can emerge between the unweighted and weighted analyses of partnerships, is presented on the following slide.
