Consumer Finances and Economic Perspectives

Explore the evolving landscape of consumer spending amidst a backdrop of continued economic uncertainty in the United States. As inflation has remained stubbornly persistent, consumer optimism has taken a hit, with a high-rate environment likely to keep debt expensive for the rest of the year. Flexibility has shifted squarely to the forefront of consumer mindsets, with Buy Now Pay Later solutions seeing huge leaps in consideration. We’ll dissect spending behaviors across various financial situations, revealing how lower earners are coping with stretched budgets, while higher earners continue to indulge in discretionary spending. Join us to understand these dynamics and identify opportunities to align with consumer priorities and drive strategic growth.

Presented by Patrick Rahlfs, Principal Analyst – Financial Services
