Cost of Living Crisis: The Importance of Proactive and Empathetic Outreach for the Banking & Finance Industry

With inflation rates hitting record levels worldwide, there’s no doubt we are entering a global cost of living  crisis. A recent report noted that the highest recorded global inflation of the past decade took place in  2008 when the inflation rate was approximately 6.4% compared to the previous year. As of July 2022, the  U.S. and the U.K. are seeing 40-year record level highs with rates in both regions at 9.1%.
