The smartphone-first German “Bank of the Future” won 80,000 users within one year of launch and expanded into 6 new European territories. The digital bank is already defying a key FinTech trend by “re”-bundling, forming strategic partnerships with other FinTechs, including Barzahlen and TransferWise. Tieups with other financial services are on the cards, as Number26 looks to become an essential financial gateway across Europe.
