Digital Savings Account - NiyoX
A digital bank—also known as an online bank, virtual bank, internet-only bank, and most recently popularized as neobank— is a bank that operates exclusively online without the presence of the traditional brick and mortar branch. Digital banking is not to be confused with the internet banking portal provided by traditional banks.
Digital banks are services provided by fintechs and have gained popularity with their mobile-first approach that provides the convenience of banking on the go for the new-age consumers. The aim is to provide a hassle-free banking experience.
Fintechs usually partner with established banks to provide digital banking services. All aspects of banking, right from account opening, making payments, fund transfers, to customer support are handled online through their mobile application.
Since the fintechs are free to partner with multiple banks and financial institutions, they are able to offer a wide range of segmented financial services. For instance, partnering with one bank to provide a savings account, another to provide a forex card, yet another for mutual fund investments, or a combination of services, and so on. As a consumer, you should check the focus of a product and what serves your need the best.
