  3. 3. Global Mobile Operators: Strategies in Payments and Banking What is the research? Global Mobile Operators: Strategies in Payments and Banking is a new report and interactive PartnerBASE dataset that provides a detailed worldwide overview of the fast-growing involvement of mobile operator brands and groups in payments and banking. For 255 brands spread across 70 countries, it outlines their activity and strategic partnerships for the following payment and banking service categories as follows: • payments: contactless merchant payments; payments via bank card / account; payments via mobile phone bill; payments via network account; talktime / call credit transfer; • banking: mobile banking (bank current accounts); credit cards (non-virtual); prepaid cards (non- virtual); consumer finance / micro-credits; Across all 255 brands researched, Finaccord identified a total of over 500 distinct product initiatives and partnerships involving close to 300 banking institutions, payment companies and technology firms. Moreover, within a separate analysis, Finaccord summarises the main strategic moves made in financial services as a whole, including insurance and assistance, by the leading 65 mobile telecoms groups worldwide. Note – for exact definitions of the five payment products listed, please see slide 19. Expertise in financial services© Finaccord Ltd., 2012 Web: www.finaccord.com. E-mail: info@finaccord.com 3
  4. 4. Global Mobile Operators: Strategies in Payments and Banking What is the rationale? There are a number of reasons for producing this report. First and foremost, and while the precise magnitude of the opportunity varies by country, the number of customers of mobile operator brands typically runs into millions or tens of millions which makes them potentially attractive as affinity partners from the point of view of banks, payment companies and technology firms; in any given country, few other organisations possess as many on-going customers as the leading mobile operators. Moreover, with growth from established revenue streams tending to slow, as the penetration of mobile subscriptions reaches maturity, mobile operators are looking to new fields of activity, such as financial services, to generate fresh sources of income. Indeed, rapid advances in payment and other financial technologies signify that mobile operators are well-positioned to benefit from growth in mobile payments and banking. However, the status of the current activity of both mobile telecoms groups and brands is simultaneously complex and fragmented. Typically, initiatives in mobile payments are being pursued at a national or regional level, with international standards yet to emerge, and the partners of the groups and brands include both well-known international organisations, such as American Express, China UnionPay, Citibank, Gemalto, Google, MasterCard, Monitise, PayPal, Visa and Western Union, and small, innovative firms focused on one or a few individual countries.

  5. 5. Global Mobile Operators: Strategies in Payments and Banking What methodology has been used? In order to gather the data and insights contained in this report, Finaccord employed two main research methodologies as follows: direct contact with the main international offices of the 65 mobile operator groups in question, typically with press or investor relations departments, to ask them about their current and future strategies in financial services; direct contact with the national offices and retail networks of the 255 mobile operator brands in question, to audit the exact payment and banking services offered and the partner organisations with which these have been developed, where not managed internally. The first wave of research represents the main input into the chapter providing a strategic analysis of the involvement in financial services of the worlds 65 leading mobile operator groups while the second underpins the chapter analysing the activity of the 255 brands on a product-by-product basis. In both cases, Finaccord sent its eventual findings to be checked by the mobile operator group and brand representatives with amendments made to the data in line with any feedback received. The 65 mobile operator groups covered are shown overleaf with a summary of the breakdown of the 255 mobile operator brands covered by region and group illustrated on the following page.

  8. 8. Global Mobile Operators: Strategies in Payments and Banking What is the report structure? 0. Executive Summary: providing a concise evaluation of the principal findings of the report. 1. Introduction: offering rationale, description of methodology and some definitions. 2. Group Strategy Analysis: comprising a summary of the strategies in payments, banking, insurance and assistance of the worlds leading 65 mobile telecoms groups by number of subscribers. This section highlights the main strategic moves made by these groups in each of mobile payments, mobile banking and insurance / assistance; in doing so, it covers significant joint ventures created by these groups (e.g. Isis, Jibun Bank, mpass, Wanda) and identifies external financial, payment and technology organisations that are engaging with these groups at a strategic level (e.g. Assurant, Gemalto, Google, Western Union). 3. Brand Analysis: analyses and commentary regarding the provision of the various payment and banking products covered by the 255 mobile operator brands researched. This includes both the unweighted and weighted provision rates for each product; any regional variations in the provision rates for each product; where relevant, the degree to which mobile payment products were found to operate on an international (rather than a purely domestic) basis; and the weighted competitor shares of partnerships for each product, quantifying which providers (and, where relevant, payment networks) are playing a leading role in these areas.

  12. 12. Global Mobile Operators: Strategies in Payments and Banking Who can use the research? 1. Mobile telecoms groups: this research will benchmark the activity in payments and banking of your direct competitors and other comparators across major countries around the world with regional coverage of Africa, Asia Pacific (including Australasia), Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and North America; 2. Banks: as a consequence of their sheer size, their on-going relationships with customers and the increasing functionality of the mobile devices used by those customers, strategic partnerships with mobile operators represent a major opportunity for financial services institutions; 3. Payment and other financial technology companies: it is often the case for mobile operators that opportunities in mobile payments, in particular, can only be realised through collaboration with payment or other financial technology companies, especially as they seek to add international functionality to their initiatives in this arena; 4. Management consultancies: if you are helping a financial institution or technology company with its strategy in relation to mobile operators or advising a mobile operator how it can make money from payments and banking, then this research will explain the global activity of mobile operator brands and groups in financial services, saving time and effort on researching the subject yourself.

  19. 19. Global Mobile Operators: Strategies in Payments and Banking Definitions of mobile payment products and services covered As evidenced by this research, the broad field of mobile payments is one in which there is very significant activity on the part of the mobile operator groups and brands investigated. However, it is actually the case that there are several different types of mobile payment and Finaccord has defined them in this study within five categories as detailed below. Contactless merchant payments: By means of one or more partnerships established with one or more specific banks and / or payment networks (e.g. American Express, MasterCard, Visa) and / or payment technology companies, the ability of a customer to pay for goods or services (usually with a relatively low value) by holding an enabled mobile handset close to a payment terminal with contactless functionality (e.g. using NFC or RFID technology). Payments via bank card / account: Payments are taken from a bank card or bank account that has previously been linked to the mobile phone number. This can be direct, where the receiving party takes the card details, or indirect, where the phone network guards the card number, in the manner of PayPal. Payments via phone bill: Payments are billed to the user through their phone bill (either for prepaid or contract customers). This is typically limited to lower value transactions, and can include goods and services as well as online content; it excludes transfers to other mobile phones. These payments are made without the use of a bank or payment network. Note that the purchasing of purely phone-related media such as ringtones, wallpapers, screensavers and games – whether these be from the network itself or from a third party – are not to be included here; these relatively minor (and well-established) purchases are excluded from the scope of this report. Payments via network account: Payments are made from a separate account opened by the customer with the mobile phone network. Typically these can have extra cash added to them through local dealers or retailers, payments can be made to companies or private individuals, the user can receive payments as well and withdraw cash from local dealers or retailers. These accounts can be run by the phone network on its own, and / or with a technology partner and / or with a bank or payment network. Examples include Orange Money, Airtel Money and M-PESA. Talktime / call credit transfer: A user can send talktime or call credits to another users mobile phone number. These credits must be used for calls and texts, rather than being used to fund general purchases or being withdrawn as cash. For the person sending the credits, the amount may be either immediately deducted from their prepaid account, or added to their monthly bill, as appropriate.
