“We found that there is a lot of confusion, frustration, and anxiety around personal finances and that people are looking for more simplicity, transparency, and trust when it comes to banking,” said Nicolas Kopp, U.S. CEO of N26

“Our mission has always been to make banking simple and easy, and we are committed to supporting people by providing them with the tools they need in these uncertain times. A great example of this is our Apple Pay integration as our survey found that over 60% of people are planning to opt for contactless payments due to COVID19,” he added.
