Readership

Predominantly a student audience but moderately specialist. Level 2: 2nd/3rd year undergraduates in business/management degrees with services marketing and financial services marketing modules; and broad financial services degrees. Some appeal to: masters level modules in management/marketing students of professional qualifications (e.g. Chartered Institute of Banking, Institute of Financial Services) - potentially a substantial market although many professional bodies have their own material.
