250,000 Reasons to Celebrate

It’s been a busy five years since N26 GmbH first started its journey to revolutionize the banking industry and develop a mobile app that empowers people around the world to manage their money in a way that fits and enhances their lives. It has also been just over five months since N26 Inc., in partnership with Axos Bank®, expanded this journey to the U.S., bringing customers an experience that is transparent, secure, and beautiful, designed to fit modern lifestyles in today’s fast-paced world.

Today, following the recent announcement that N26 GmbH reached 5 million customers worldwide, we’re celebrating another important milestone: reaching 250,000 in the U.S. since our August launch. While 5 million represents more than double customer growth globally in 2019 alone, and the trust of millions of customers around the world looking for a better way to manage their finances, the U.S. figure is an exciting first-step in our journey to bring a mobile-first alternative to American customers. While we don’t only measure success in numbers, our recent growth is a testament to the tireless work of our global team, and the constant product innovations that have made N26 an exciting new player in the market.

“As we’ve continued enhancing our product to help customers build stronger financial lives, we’re thrilled to see such a large uptake from U.S. consumers,” shared Nic Kopp, U.S. CEO of N26 Inc. “We have big plans for 2020 with an exciting roadmap of new features that we’re confident will continue to bolster N26’s presence in the U.S.”

Since our launch in the U.S., we’ve introduced a unique Perks program that offers cashback and discounts from exciting brands like Lime, Headspace, and Booking.com; unveiled a network of over 50,000 surcharge-free ATMs; introduced a way to send money instantly to friends and family via MoneyBeam; and launched updates to make our app more intuitive, approachable, and tailored to to a wide array of lifestyles.

Many of these updates and innovations came directly from customer feedback, so we’d like to thank all of our early fans and adopters for being a fundamental part of this journey. While our long-term vision to serve 100 million customers worldwide is ambitious, we’re determined to create a best-in-class product that helps our customers better understand and manage their finances.
