Innovative twists on digital banking
Zach Bruhnke, cofounder and the CEO of HMBradley HMBradley
The public is getting used to the concept of banking without branches which is a trend that startups banks that are digital only like Chime, N26, and Varo have profited from.
Most of these fintechs are targeting those who are not banked and depend on credit cards in order to earn profits from interchange. However, a competitor start-up HMBradley is a business with a distinct model.
cofounder and the CEO of HMBradley told Insider. “A lot of our customer base uses credit cards on a daily basis.”
Instead, the company seeks to attract customers with stable deposit accounts. In the end, the bank has introduced rates of interest based on how much a person earns from their direct deposit.
The rate levels are based on the savings percentage, not on the amount net.
So it was always going to be about a percentage of income. That was really important to us.”
