Neobanks have transformed banking as we know it. With mobile-first, customer-centric, and low-cost strategies, they have bridged the experiential gap between traditional banking and evolving customer expectations. Today businesses and legacy banks aspire to join the neobanking revolution to simplify and expedite digital banking anywhere, anytime.

Are you looking to launch your own neobank?

Follow the simple steps below. Don’t worry, this is not unqualified advice.

We’ve drawn these steps from our experience of enabling neobanking services to players such as Zenpay, Niyo, and Finin.


Remember, the profitability of your neobank will be determined by the Customer Lifetime Value (CLV)/ Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC) ratio. The higher the CLV/CAC ratio, the greater will be the income generated per new customer. So, the key is to keep your customers happy. πŸ˜ƒ
