Cross-selling in financial services

Client Results Story

However, FinancialServiceCo did not know which customers were the best targets for cross-selling the new financial services product.

The company asked Bain to address four key questions. 
  • Which customer segments would prove most profitable for their new product? 
  • How can the segments be identified and evaluated? 
  • What will the profitability be by customer group? 
  • What revenue stream overlaps should FinancialServiceCo consider?
