N26 Revenue and Usage Statistics (2024)

David Curry

Updated: January 12, 2024

N26 is one of a several neobanks that launched in the mid-2010s, which were aimed at breaking up the monotony of banking with well zero-fee services and well designed mobile apps.

Founded in Munich as one of the many startups incubated by Rocket Internet, N26 originally operated as the frontend interface which was backed by Wirecard. In 2016, it received a banking license from the financial regulator in Germany to operate on its own.

Since becoming a bank, N26 has added other services, such as a basic current account, savings and insurance.

It launched in the United States in 2019, partnering with Axos Bank to serve as the provider of services and insurer, but in November 2021 it announced plans to withdraw from the country. N26 had around 500,000 customers in the US at the time of announcement.

N26 also withdrew from the UK in 2020, citing an inability to operate in the country due to Brexit. N26 could have applied for a UK banking license, but other European neobanks, such as Revolut, have struggled in the past.

N26 sees its future as the dominant neobank in Europe, competing with Revolut and Monzo for the title. It has eight million customers across 24 countries, with its largest markets being Germany, France and Italy.
