Conclusion * See subsequent pages for examples from this section. Topic: As part of on-going Mapa research in the mobile space we see that banks are looking beyond core mobile banking apps to engage with both existing customers and prospects on mobile devices. A range of techniques are being used. In our latest syndicated report, we take a look at some of the best non-core banking initiatives in financial services, and take a look at other sectors, providing some thought-provoking ideas for banks. Implementing these ideas will provide value for their customers, build loyalty and branding, and extend product and service offerings. In the report we look in detail at 10 different non-core banking apps plus a small number of initiatives taken from outside the banking sector that could be relevant for a financial services company. Methodology: For all examples we include quick facts, business cases, our commentary and analysis, and screenshots, as well as statistics and other insight we have obtained (including quotes and comments from the organisations behind the app). The report comprises 42 pages. What are banks doing - beyond core mobile banking apps - to engage with both existing customers and prospects, using the app opportunity? Objective: The key objectives of the research was to: Gain an understanding of what types of non-core banking apps are available to customers, as well as non-customers. Identify the business cases amongst selected apps of interest. Investigate apps outside the banking sector, and see if any could be applicable to a financial services company. Provide evidence of success regarding the app initiatives highlighted.

4 © Mapawww.maparesearch.com Summary of approach As part of this report project we have researched: Approximately 80 banks and financial services companies across the following countries: 40 non-financial services companies, primarily in the Nordics, UK and USA. Sectors researched include hotel, retail, telecom and travel. We have also reviewed documents held at Mapa such as previous syndicated reports, conference material and bookmarked news stories captured as part of our ongoing monitoring of digital developments around the world. Screenshots have been taken using live Mapa held consumer accounts. In some cases insight has also been provided by using screenshots available within the AppStore / Google Play.

5 © Mapawww.maparesearch.com Objectives The objectives of the research was to: Gain an understanding of what types of non-core banking apps are available to customers, as well as non-customers. Identify the business cases amongst selected apps of interest. Investigate apps outside the banking sector, and see if any could be applicable to a financial services company. Where possible, provide evidence of success regarding the app initiatives highlighted. This report will feed into internal planning and decision making processes,providing both creative inspiration as well as a tool to strengthen business cases. Chapters Covered We start off with a summary of our research process. In Chapter 1 we look in detail at 10 different non-core banking apps, including quick facts, business cases, our commentary and analysis, and screenshots, as well as statistics and other insight we have obtained. Chapter 2 has examples that we have obtained as part of doing research outside the banking sector. For all the examples included in this chapter we suggest why these could be relevant for a financial services company. In Chapter 3 we summarise the key findings and comment on the future. Executive Summary E Key themes Throughout this research project a number of key themes have emerged: Housing and mortgage related apps are, by far, the most common approach by banks to extend their app offerings. This is also the app initiative outside core banking that we see providing the best business case. Loyalty schemes and deals create another appealing business case, particularly around the use of GPS functionality and the option to redeem quickly and easily. This will be the new app battle ground. We anticipated that there would be a large number of app initiatives aimed at youths and students: considering them a digital savvy generation that banks want to tie closer to their business. Currently few such initiatives exist. Despite a huge worldwide search we have only been able to find and include a small number of non-banking apps that we see as having potential for banks to build a case around. Our conclusion: should banks just stick to banking? Considering our scope and findings; banks, in most cases, seem to think so. Sample page from report

6 © Mapawww.maparesearch.com Ten examples: Citi – ThankYou Rewards 1 Quick facts Check your reward point balance Browse a product catalogue from Best Buy stores Redeem your points at Best Buy, checking out on your mobile Purchases can be picked up in-store or delivered Business case The Citi Rewards scheme is part of their central marketing strategy to build customer loyalty. It will drive profitable customer behaviour, including greater account acquisition, spend and fee revenue, and reduced attrition - all of which bring direct revenue for the bank. After only 5 years of running the scheme, the Citi claimed 13 million customers, making it one of the world’s largest loyalty schemes. Once the business case for the rewards scheme itself is created, it naturally translates to the mobile channel. With smartphone penetration in the USA at over 50% and numerous mobile coupon and rewards sucess stories, a mobile version of ThankYou Rewards seems obvious. Increasing accesibility of the scheme increases the value of the rewards points. Mapa comments ThankYou Rewards was one of the first bank lead apps to join up reward points with a mobile commerce solution. Citi are perhaps the leading example of a bank letting customers unlock the value stored in their loyalty points. Citi points can also be viewed in the mobile banking app and shared among Facebook friends. Further insight and statistics: “It’s about giving our customers what they wanted,” said Ralph Andretta, executive vice president of loyalty and new products at Citi. “We’re starting to see people actively engage with us on mobile,” Mr. Andretta said. “We’re very excited about the new mobile app. We’re also very excited to partner with Best Buy - they have depth and reach,” although Citi would consider partnering with other retailers. As part of the app promotion any Citi ThankYou member who downloads the app at the Best Buy store in Union Square, New York City from noon to 9 P.M. will receive bonus ThankYou Rewards points.

7 © Mapawww.maparesearch.com 1 Mapa comment: The integration of mobile devices with physical commerce is increasingly prevalent. Previously, customers may have only used their phones to compare prices online, but now retailers are attempting to include mobile devices for shopping, checkout and loyalty. One new intitaitve comes from Sainsbury’s in the UK : bit.ly/Px0I5Pbit.ly/Px0I5P Customers can search, scan and redeem ThankYou Rewards at Best Buy. Customers can also see their rewards points in the main mobile banking service. N.B. ThankYou rewards can also be shared on Facebook (see next page). ThankYou rewards app landing page after login (login with rewards member username and password) If at a Best Buy store, customers can scan in product barcodes to see how many points they would need to redeem them. Customers can then purchase the product by checking-out on their mobile phone. After receiving a confirmation , the customer can pick up their product in the store.
