Banking with N26

N26 is a digital banking platform founded in February 2013 by Valentin Stalf and Maximilian Tayenthal in Berlin, Germany. As a digital-first platform, N26 aligns closely with open banking principles, a system where banks and other financial institutions provide third-party providers access to customer data through application programming interfaces (APIs). Open banking fosters competition, innovation, and better consumer choices, facilitated by regulations such as the European Union's Revised Payment Service Directive (PSD2). N26 illustrates the trends of both unbundling and rebundling in banking services. Initially, N26 took advantage of the unbundling trend by offering a user-friendly checking account and payment card, separating these basic services from a traditional bank?s full range. However, over time, N26 started to rebundle services by adding more features and partnerships, creating a comprehensive banking platform with a digital-first approach, similar to a traditional bank. This case on digital banking innovation, using the example of N26, serves as an exploration of the evolving landscape of the banking industry. It sheds light on how traditional banking models are being disrupted and reimagined by digital-first initiatives.
