Processing financial services communications effectively may help both consumers and financial marketers since financial information acquisition and processing are important for consumers to make informed financial decisions. Acquiring and processing financial services communications requires the necessary ability, motivation and opportunity to do so. This chapter discusses the Ability, Motivation and Opportunity (AMO) Model (Greenwald and Leavitt 1984, Hallahan 2000, MacInnis and Jaworski 1989, Petty and Cacioppo 1979, 1981, 1986) and presents relevant research findings based on the individual variables in the context of financial services communications.
