A bank with a global vision

Our founders Max and Valentin started N26 in 2013 to set new standards in an industry that’s remained institutional and dysfunctional for many. Their vision was to transform the way you manage your money with the latest technology and the best minds from around the globe, in order to change banking for the better.

In February 2019, we opened our Spanish branch to offer bank accounts with Spanish IBANs. Since then, we’ve grown leaps and bounds with over 700,000 customers in Spain.
