The brands in YouGov Finance Purchase Funnel Rankings are ranked based on their Consideration score among consumers who are Aware of each brand. This allows us to show which brands are most successful at converting Aware consumers into ones that would consider the brand when next in-market.
To identify the Aware audience we ask, ‘Which of the following brands have you ever heard of? Please select all that apply.’ And in follow up we ask the Consideration question, ‘When you are in the market next to use a product or service from a Financial Services brand, which of the following would you consider?’. The questions vary slightly from this template in different sub-sectors and regions.
The rankings chart shows the brands with the highest average Consideration score between 1st September 2020 - 31st August 2021. The scores are representative of Aware consumers within the general population of adults 18+.
All scores listed have been rounded to a single decimal place; however, we have used additional precision to assign ranks. All brands have been tracked for at least 6 months to be included in the rankings.
