The collaboration between MKOR Consulting and TransferGo resulted in a market research that targeted the general adult population in Romania, study participants being members of MKOR’s Panel.

In a booming fintech market and a growing consumer appetite for digital solutions, the study looked at the potential offered by the local financial transfer market.

For this nationally representative study, we used the opinion poll as a research method, distributed online with the help of the our Research Panel in Romania.

In the study conducted by MKOR, TransferGo pursued a series of research objectives:

  • Habits, perceptions and attitudes related to money transfers;
  • The profile of the Romanian consumer who does – or doesn’t – transfer money;
  • The potential of the local money transfer market.

The final report was able to provide an overview of the potential market including detailed analyzes of existing and potential consumer profile, brand awareness for money transfer applications, as well as opportunities for making transfers (sending versus receiving).

In addition, MKOR’s team also analyzed non-users (people who do not use online / mobile services for money transfer) and the reasons why they are reluctant to such applications.
