Survey: More consumers embracing mobile banking

August 20, 2014

While the Internet remains America's most popular banking method, mobile banking has steadily gained momentum and is now preferred by 10 percent of consumers—up from 8 percent in 2013—according to a recent survey by the American Bankers Association.

The annual survey of 1,000 U.S. adults was conducted for ABA by Ipsos Public Affairs, an independent market research firm, Aug. 7-12, 2014. This is the sixth year in a row that customers have named the Internet as their favorite way of conducting their banking business, albeit by a slimmer margin than last year. Thirty-one percent of respondents said it is the method they use most often to manage their bank accounts, down from 39 percent in 2013.

We're asking all bankers in Oklahoma to help us convince their congressman to co-sponsor three bills that have been moved to the House floor for consideration yet this year. The bills are H.R. 2673, H.R. 4521 and H.R. 4466.

The ABA has made it easy to send a letter by going to this website and following the simple instructions to send a letter by email.

OBA's economic impact brochure shows importance of banks

The OBA communications department recently developed an "Economic Impact Brochure" that breaks out how much Oklahoma-chartered banks mean to the economy of the state. The brochure will be used in OBA visits with government officials and media to help illustrated the positives of banking in our state.

If your bank would like a professional printing version (larger file size, along with printer's marks) to have professionally printed by a local company of your choice, feel free to contact the OBA's communications department.

If you have any question about this brochure, or its use, feel free to contact Jeremy Cowen or Kristin Ewing in the OBA communications department.
