Today, N26 is launching in the US – a huge milestone in our journey to become a bank the world loves to use.
Our goal is to give everyone the opportunity to bank and live their own way. We empower our customers to make better decisions, take better opportunities and give them financial confidence and inspiration every day.
Since our launch in January 2015, N26 has been an extraordinary success story. Today, we serve 3.5 million customers with 16 million transactions per month and a monthly transaction volume of over 2 billion euros. More than 10,000 new customers sign up every day in our 24 European markets, primarily through word of mouth.
Yet the future of N26 is global. Our US launch is a major milestone in our journey to become a truly global bank. We aim to reach over 50 million customers around the world in the coming years. We know that millions of people worldwide, particularly in the US, still pay hidden fees, suffer from poor customer experience, and cannot easily integrate their personal banking into their everyday lives. We will radically change the way Americans bank, like we did for our customers throughout Europe.
Check out our US product blog post and learn about a few things you can expect from banking with N26 in the US.
As the first European challenger bank launching in the US, we are excited that 100,000 customers on the US waitlist now have access to our product. We’re looking forward to our full public launch later this summer.
We would like to say thank you to our fantastic team and our US CEO Nic, as well as our incredibly loyal customers, who have all made this US launch possible. We wouldn’t be celebrating this success without their support. Their trust and confidence in N26 has helped us create this remarkable company, which today is one of the most successful startups in Europe. We are looking forward to continuing this success story – in Europe, the US and other markets around the world.
With sincere thanks,
Valentin Stalf, Maximilian Tayenthal
