Wednesday, September 24th, 2008 | Financial Press Release

Beacham Authors New "Money Savvy Grands" Advice Column for Grandparents. Grandparents are hungry for the opportunity to teach their grandchildren about money. Why? "They want to do a better job with their grandchildren than they did with their own children," states financial literacy expert and award-winning columnist Susan Beacham.

Lake Bluff, IL (Vocus/PRWEB ) September 16, 2008 -- Grandparents are hungry for the opportunity to teach their grandchildren about money.

To help grandparents talk to their grandchildren about money, Beacham launched a new column this week, Money Savvy Grands. This new financial advice column is featured on silvervixens.com, an on-line gathering place for women over 55. This new thought-provoking column highlights financial literacy and money management challenges faced by grandparents as they relate to their grandchildren.

Beacham, who leads grandparent workshops, regularly sees how much grandparents want to give their grandchildren financial literacy tools as gifts or to give to their own children to make the choice. "Grandparents are in a unique position when it comes to their grandchildren,” notes Beacham. “They don’t want to critique the parents’ style of parenting; rather they want to support it. Money education is a great place to interject that support. Grandparents have the experience and the time, and parents are happy to get the extra help."

Beacham grew up with her grandmother and understands the power a grandparent has when delivering a message. "Grandparents are unconditional when they educate their grandchildren. It makes the message easier to embrace," says Beacham.

Online & Mobile Banking Operations Gain Popularity Among Customers, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008 | Financial Press Release

Worldwide banking industry is anticipated to make rapid strides, driven by the growing consumer demand for technologically advanced, convenient, easy to use, effective, and affordable products and services. Relatively lower penetration rates in emerging markets of Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Eastern Europe are expected to offer growth opportunities for market participants.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) September 16, 2008 -- Worldwide, banking industry has been evolving and adapting to changing economic, and geopolitical equations. While the penetration of banking operations is high in developed countries, low penetration rates in emerging economies are expected to translate into vast growth opportunities for players in the banking sector. Banking system in Asia is on a new high with majority of the countries witnessing favorable economic growth. Similar vibrancy is visible in Eastern Europe, despite concerns related to rising unemployment levels.

Rising investments in the field of information technology (IT) solutions are anticipated to play a major role in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of banking industry operations. Software, professional services and outsourcing services are three major focus areas for banking industry players. With cost containment being a major issue facing the industry, banks are adopting stringent financial disciplinary measures to ensure the same. Outsourcing is one such measure adopted by the banking sector, whereby banks seek to cut costs by outsourcing operations to low-cost offshore destinations.

Online banking is one of the most prolific growth sectors in the overall banking industry, driven primarily by the rising consumer demand for convenient banking transactions. Technological advancements and faster transaction processing are contributing to the growth of online banking market, including online credit card payments sector. Despite rising popularity, online banking services are presently used for limited operations such as checking account balances and transfer of funds. Banking through mobile phones is another growth sector for the industry, fostered by the convenient and affordable nature of mobile banking services. With penetration of mobile phones rising exponentially across the world, mobile banking services are set to gain popularity among consumers.

A variety of bankcards are in use across the world, including credit cards and debit cards. Credit cards market is characterized by high degree of competition owing to relatively lower entry barriers. Growth in the market is significantly influenced by factors such as consumer willingness to borrow, ease of access to credit, and lack of debit card legacy. United States, Asia-Pacific and Europe constitute major markets for credit cards. The relatively lower level of credit card utilization in Asia-Pacific and Eastern Europe offers enormous growth opportunities for the sector.

Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) represent one of the most flexible banking products in use today. Developed initially to cut operational costs, ATMs have emerged as a significant technological investment made by commercial banks, assisting in easing congestion at bank counters. ATM usage has been on a rise on account of increased customer acceptance, and expansion of EFT networks. Apart from conventional function of cash withdrawal, present day ATMs perform additional functions such as cash checking, check imaging, dispensing event tickets, stamps, coupons, phone cards, printing graphical documents, among others.
