Asia’s growing population of digitally active consumers are buying three times as many banking products as their less tech-savvy peers, prompting lenders to improve their online offerings, according to a new McKinsey report.

Each online banking customer purchased 1.6 products on average in the last 12 months, while traditional customers – who prefer to visit a branch – bought just 0.5, said McKinsey in the survey published on Tuesday.

And the digital customers owned an average of 4.4 products, said the report, about 40 per cent more than those who don’t use digital channels at all.

McKinsey conducted the survey in the second half of 2017 to garner opinions from 17,000 consumers in 15 Asian markets, including Australia, mainland China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea and Vietnam.
