Home » About

Lafferty Global Research databases are an online resource providing market and competitor intelligence on payment cards, e-money, acquiring/processing, retail banking and consumer credit.

Covering over 70 countries, our global databases provide you with the critical information you need to make informed decisions in those markets where you already have a presence, as well as enabling you to make an accurate assessment prior to entering (or leaving) a market.

Lafferty strives to deliver market intelligence in a manner suited to our clients' needs. Each market is analysed using a bespoke template developed following discussions with clients to determine what information is important to them. A dedicated team of analysts and researchers then use both primary and secondary source data and conduct in-depth interviews with senior industry executives and experts.

The resulting reports provide a unique combination of the latest available data and a clear, objective analysis of payment cards, acquiring, retail banking and consumer credit activities in each market. The research is loaded online under key rubrics and tables, allowing users to analyse the content relevant to them and to compare and contrast multiple data points across markets.

Client needs vary, and for this reason we have ensured that information can be accessed in a number of ways: by individual country, by multiple countries, regionally, globally or by considering specific data elements. As part of our client support, you can also access our analysts should you require further clarification or guidance.
