Consumer credit: assessment of the impacts of the law Lagarde

Within five years, from October 2006 to September 2011, the Bank of France were nearly 1,022,273 records filed with the Debt Commissions, an average of nearly 204,455 cases a year. Trailing 12 months, from October 2010 to September 2011, the caseload is up 6.4%.

Hence the issue of law reform Lagarde on mortgage lending, the consumer credit and the fight against overindebtedness.

But the establishment of this regulatory mechanism has not been neutral for companies to consumer credit.

About Cross- Selling

The cross-selling as a catalyst for customer loyalty: state of the art of good practices. Faced with increased competition, banks and insurance companies must continually strengthen relationships with their customers. While 1 / 3 of the people have accounts in several banks (IREQ 2006), the challenge is to become the main bank or insurance client.

One way to be the leader is to increase the rate of multi-ownership: the interest is to provide diversified products to the customer to capture it while ensuring sufficient profitability during its life cycle. That is to increase revenue per customer (cheaper than acquiring new customers) by increasing the products held by clients and services sold.

The transformation of the sector as the penetration of bank assurance, the Assurfinance, and banking-real estate agency promotes more cross-selling. Through tailor-made pricing, offers and services can be complementary and beneficial to customers who already own one or more products and thus meet all their needs (offer a discount on the purchase of a coupled auto and home insurance or credit coupled with car insurance, etc ...)

The additional sales are based on an understanding of the client, and updated as and when relationships are maintained. They depend on the life of the client's potential risk (credit risk) and value ("life time value"). The option to develop the relationship with customers most willing to deepen and extend this relationship is vital.

To stimulate the use and income of customers, relationship marketing must move towards a proactive logic by exploiting business opportunities with specific offers that will be triggered through key moments in the client's life: a real estate purchase, a change of vehicle a termination, etc .... These can be transmitted to the client, on the one hand, in "push" or direct marketing (eg on the web, it displays the customer area of the loan amount for which he is eligible, without having make any loan application), and second, in "pull" or sales rebound as enjoy a call from the client to provide a product or service selected by the system depending on its characteristics.

A Vector of Innovation

The French are increasingly using more online banking with nearly 60% of Internet users who visit the website of their bank. Despite this, the agency remains the focus of customer relationship: 27,435 bank branches were recorded in France at the end of 2006, more than 1,000 additional branches in two years. Also, the banking and insurance from a distance, 100% online, limited for now to a few organizations: foreign banks, some credit institutions and insurance so it is important to link the distribution channels.

Personalize the communication and efficient use of distribution channels following the logic of process costs and customer value is the major axis of a multi-channel strategy. Depending on the objectives, policies can be differentiated.

In this logic, combinations client use x x channel are put forward to maintain the equivalence between the link type of transaction / channel and the link type of customer / channel.

Whatever the entry point used by the client, processes are implemented, depending on the task at hand to guide the client to the appropriate channel in terms of palatability and cost (programs incentives such as offers for online subscriptions).

In addition, indirect methods largely complete the distribution of offers and services such as the Broker (TV operators), the network affinity (automobile association for insurers) and the General Agent as an extension of networks of insurance agencies.
