A neobank is a type of direct bank that is 100% digital and reaches customers on mobile apps and personal computer platforms only. Neobanks do not operate traditional physical branch networks. Neobanks are technology-driven and may adopt machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies whilst not being constrained by legacy systems of traditional banking competitors.
The term neobank first became prominent in 2017 to describe fintech based financial providers that were challenging traditional banks. There were two main types of company that provided services digitally, companies that applied for their own banking license and companies that partnered with a traditional bank to provide those financial services.
