Consumers Are Willing to Share Personal Data in Exchange for Better Customer Experience, Broadridge Study Finds
Amidst a backdrop of increasing emphasis on data privacy via the introductions of the General Data Protection Regulation and California Consumer Privacy Act, nearly half of consumers in North America (45%) would be willing to share their data if it meant that it would enhance their customer experience (CX), according to a new study from global Fintech leader Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR).
The annual study, which surveys the opinions of more than 3,000 individuals in North America on topics relating to consumer experience and essential communications, revealed that consumers’ desire for enhanced experiences coincided with an even stronger sentiment around the need for more data privacy legislation. In fact, more than 84% want more legislation that increases their ability to protect and control the personal data they provide companies, as well as greater transparency on how their data is used.
“Data privacy concerns are at a peak, and yet consumers are placing immense value on their experiences and are willing to share more of their personal data if it enhances the services they receive in return,” said Matt Swain, managing director and practice lead for communications consulting services at Broadridge. “Data is the bedrock of customer experience and providers of essential communications, like bills and statements, have a significant opportunity to modernize the way they customize consumers’ experiences. This can only be done if they are clear about what data is needed, how it will be managed and, ultimately, how it will improve the lives of their customers – on and offline.”
Demand for Paperless Communications Rises, and Companies are Missing Out
When it comes to essential communications, interest in going digital is growing. Compared to the 45% who prefer paper, two out of three respondents (67%) switched at least one bill or statement to paperless in the last year.
Although there’s increasing demand for digital bills and statements, the data suggests a missed opportunity for companies to grow paperless adoption, customer engagement and convenience at the onset of the relationship, while cutting costs. Only four out of 10 consumers were asked to go paperless when they opened a new account and 29% said that they were never asked at all.
In terms of motivations for going paperless, most respondents (72%) agree that reducing clutter was their primary reason for switching to online communications from their providers this past year.
Helping Consumers Take Financial Control with Advanced Features
Consumers making the leap to paperless are also increasingly looking to get more out of their bills and statements so they can take control of their finances. In fact, 72% would prefer advanced options, such as customizable dashboards, to control the look and feel of bills and statements. For those who have investment or retirement funds, insights and recommendations on their activities and spending relative to their financial goals are increasingly important (59%).
Interestingly, nearly one-third (29%) of respondents say they never review their bills or statements for reoccurring “zombie subscriptions,” which often hit consumers’ bank accounts unexpectedly.
Beyond customization of communications, consumers also want centralized delivery and storage options for bills and statements in the cloud (40%), particularly when it comes to accessing important and time-sensitive financial information. More than two-thirds (69%) of respondents say having all their financial documents in one archived location would make things like filing taxes much easier.
“Companies have the opportunity to transform the customer experience through bills and statements,” added Swain. “By reframing these household communications, companies can create more meaningful engagement with their consumers, helping simplify and organize their bills and statements, while also creating new layers of brand equity and additional revenue opportunities.”

The 45-question survey was administered between November 6-13, 2019, to 3,006 U.S. and Canadian residents ages 25 and older. The sample was weighted to current U.S. and Canadian Census data for age, gender and region. The figures are statistically significant at the 95% confidence level with a margin of error of ±2 percentage points.

Hitting $12B in AUM, Carson Doubles Down on Cutting Tech Costs for Partners
Carson Group, one of the fastest growing financial services firms in the country, announced that as of April 1, 2020, Carson will cover technology costs for all partner firms—encompassing software platforms Salesforce, Orion, Smarsh and Egnyte. eMoney will also be covered as of May 1, 2020. Instead of spending time and money evaluating and adopting technology, wirehouse advisors, IARs and RIAs in the Carson Partners network can now, more than ever, focus on what matters and maximize the value they deliver to the families they serve.
Carson President Teri Shepherd said, “Reaching $12 billion AUM is a testament to our advisors and their dedication to serving nearly 32,000 families across the United States. We want our partners to have the resources to continuously reinvest in optimization and growth. Paying for the tech stack is the latest example of our commitment to helping advisors serve their clients while empowering them to focus on being the CEO of their business.”
Carson Group had unveiled plans to eliminate the financial burden on advisor businesses leveraging the Carson CX (client experience) at its flagship industry-wide Excell conference in Chicago in May 2019. Plans for discounted services and direct cost savings to partners were among the key messages shared during Carson’s Partner Summit that takes place during Excell each year. The team announced zero costs on Orion Advisor Services fees within advisory accounts, which averaged a savings of more than $22,000 per advisor firm.
Bob Huntley, Founder and Wealth Advisor of Texas-based Carson partner firm Wise Counsel Wealth Management said, “I cannot tell you how exciting it is to be part of this movement Ron Carson has built. I am already making plans to reinvest 100 percent of the savings back into growth this year.”
This commitment to eliminating tech costs is the latest in an ongoing rollout of Carson CX (customer experience) releases and technology enhancements to help make complex issues simple for advisors and investors across the country. Over the past year, the organization has rolled out several value-added advisor services and support to its ecosystem, including an expanded brokerage solution, M&A consulting to help its advisors grow their practices, succession planning, and cash management options through its partnership with Galileo Money+, a new mobile-only banking service, available exclusively through financial advisors.
Carson Group serves advisors and investors in more than 120 partner offices across the country, including 24 Carson Wealth offices. In addition to being a mainstay in the Barron’s annual list of top wealth management firms, Carson Group remains among the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing companies, has been recognized for two consecutive years by InvestmentNews as a top-50 firm for Best Places to Work for Financial Advisors, and was recently awarded a Best Places to Work in FinTech by American Banker.
