The effects of COVID-19 continues to be felt around the globe and organizations will need to anticipate and prepare for the changes in their consumer’s needs, behaviors and preferences. In particular, what are the long-term shifts in consumer behaviors and how can organizations transform their business to successfully adapt to these changes?

This executive summary examines the evolution of consumer behaviors across 12 countries, regions and territories - Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, both mainland and Hong Kong (SAR), France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, UK and the US. It is the first of three reports and is based on a consumer pulse survey data collected from 29 May to 8 June 2020 from more than 12,000 consumers and looked at their interactions with Consumer & Retail, Banking and Insurance organizations. Additional reports will be released at the end of July and the beginning of September.
