BankMobile: From Fintech Bank to TechFin Platform

In 2014, BankMobile was launched as a division of Customers Bank. As opposed to relying only on organic growth, BankMobile quickly grew with a B2B2C strategy, acquiring college student checking platform HigherOne. They also used a white-label strategy with telecom disruptor Sprint Mobile.

Recently, BankMobile was re-positioned as part of a separate technology platform available to smaller banking organizations hoping to jump-start their digital banking offerings. The digital bank also announced a partnership with Google to offer their account within the GooglePay app.

We are very fortunate to have Jay and Luvleen Sidhu, co-founders of BankMobile on the show. This highly innovative father/daugher combo have been covered by, and contributed to, The Financial Brand and the Financial Brand Forum through the years. They discuss the recent moves by BankMobile and the underlying strategy that has made this evolutionary digital bank a success.
