While the market for current accounts and savings in Mexico is largely controlled by the four largest commercial banks, state-backed lenders dominate the mortgage market. Consumers place a lot of emphasis on ethical values, and this attribute is an important driver of choice across all key products. Branches remain vitally important for research, acquisition, and ongoing interactions, with online rarely being enabled for on boarding purposes.

Key Findings

  • Reputation and branch location are by far the two most important factors driving choice of bank, especially for older consumers. This benefits incumbents that have established track records and large branch networks, and makes it difficult for new entrants to achieve scale.
  • Most mortgage lending in Mexico is channeled through government-backed Infonavit, which provides subsidized loans to low-income borrowers. This has largely crowded out commercial lenders from the mass market, leaving them to focus on the top end of the market.
  • There have been large year-on-year changes in consumers' motivations for saving. Allocating funds for financial investments and retirement have both seen significant falls, and saving to reduce personal loan and credit card debt has also fallen by double-digits.
