Market Research Update – Page: Online : 9-Sep-19

New research from Roy Morgan shows that women are significantly more likely to use buy-now-pay-later payment services such as Afterpay, Zip Pay or Zip Money than men. Over one-in-ten women (11.6%) report using a buy-now-pay-later service in the last year, compared to only 5.5% of men. In addition to greater user of buy-now-pay-later services, women are also more likely to use the more traditional Bill Payment Services such as BPAY and Post Billpay with nearly three-fifths of women (59.1%) using a Bill Payment Service in the last year compared to 55.8% of men. However, men are more likely than women to use other digital payment services, including Online Payment Platforms such as PayPal and Other Contactless/Cardless Mobile Payments services such as Apple Pay. These are some of the findings from the newly released Roy Morgan ‘Digital Payment Solutions Currency Report’ June 2019. The data in this latest report is from Roy Morgan’s Single Source survey which is based on in-depth interviews conducted face-to-face with over 50,000 consumers per annum in their homes.

Market Research Update – Page: Online : 12-Feb-18

A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that 11.3% of Australian women purchase their superannuation through a "professional", compared to 14.4% of men. The survey also shows that just 68.8% of women have super, compared to 73.6% of men, while the average super balance for women is $133,000, which is only 71.9% of the male average ($185,000). Given that women have much lower superannuation balances than men, there is considerable potential to close the gap if they were able to make greater use of professional advisors such as financial planners, accountants and stockbrokers

The fund will offer balanced and growth investment options, which will have fees of around one per cent and 1.8 per cent respectively. Human Super expects to attract about $A500,000 via its initial capital raising, which is slated to close on 19 July.

Market Research Update – Page: Online : 10-Feb-16

A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that 13 per cent of Australian women aged 14+ bought eye shadow in any given six-month period during the year to September 2015. This compares with 16 per cent in the year to September 2011. However, category-leader Revlon has actually increased its customer base, and is now chosen by 13 per cent of all women who buy eye-shadow in an average six months (up from 11 per cent in 2011). Revlon’s recent growth is primarily driven by its increased popularity among women aged 35-49. The Maybelline and MAC brands have also bucked the downward trend of the last few years.
