Understanding affluent influencers—Affluencers—is critical for all businesses, particularly those in categories experiencing technological change and disruption. Deeply engaged in the categories they influence, Affluencers are the researchers and early adopters who road test new technologies and share their discoveries with their networks. Affluencer recommendations and reviews drive most categories, and Financial Services is no exception.
