About Storebrand

The challenge

Offering consumer loans in a responsible and sustainable way

When it comes to debt management, the consumer loans market is very lucrative for financial institutions. Storebrand had historically avoided this market because they were not keen to encourage people to take out expensive loans. However, Storebrand’s customers expressed interest in this product and Storebrand started to explore solutions to meet this demand in a responsible and sustainable way. 

The solution

Making debt management engaging and effortless

Having seen the benefits of leveraging Dreams Technology’s savings solution, Storebrand has decided to collaborate with Dreams Technology to address the needs of its customers. The Dreams debt management solution enabled them to enter the consumer loans market in a time-efficient and sustainable way. 

The solution empowers customers to consolidate their loans and service their debt by helping them to find money they didn’t know they had with Savehacks. Savehacks are unique micro-saving mechanisms that offer sophisticated, fun ways to save money. They help customers to find money to service their debt by turning spending habits into saving habits. 

Using a variety of scientific techniques including temptation bundling and intermittent reinforcement, they help people reprogram their attitude towards debt management, by combining them with simple and fun activities.

The Dreams customer experience successfully engages customers, helps them build financial confidence and motivates healthy financial habits. Within the Dreams experience, customers can naturally progress from servicing their debt to saving money to investing, which allows Storebrand to retain customers and build long-lasting relationships beyond lending.​
