The number of Colombians who are part of the country's financial system keeps advancing, and as of end-March, 62.4% of the adult population reported having at least one financial product, a new study from banking association Asobancaria shows.
The figure represents a 9.54% increase when compared to 1Q10, and a 0.86% increase from the association's 4Q10 report.
The largest expansion was in the credit card segment, which saw a 17% year-on-year increase to more than 5.24mn card operations reported.
