Starling Bank Review

WATCH NEXT: The best digital bank: Monzo vs Starling &t

Starling Bank is a digital “challenger” bank where you need an app on your phone to open and manage your account.

There are no branches to visit and no switching bonuses to get you to join. But you do get a user experience full of innovative features.

I’ve taken a look at this bank and its app to help you decide if it’s worth using it for your day-to-day banking.

Fireside Chat with Starling Bank and Revolut on Digital-only Banks at the Hong Kong FinTech Week

During its initial introduction to the market, digital-only banks received a warm reception. However, reports are now indicating that more consumers are moving towards digital channels of incumbent players. Are digital-only banks here to stay or have we drank the kool-aid? If so, how do these business models remain relevant?

Recap on the fireside chat with Chad West, CMO of Revolut and Megan Caywood, Co-Founder & Chief Platform Officer of Starling Bank, moderated by James Lloyd, APAC FinTech Leader and Partner of EY

Is Starling Bank About To Be Sold? What Will This Mean For Customers?

News has emerged over the weekend that not one but two different major banks are interested in acquiring Starling Bank.

Lloyds Bank and JP Morgan are both interested in purchasing UK’s leading challenger bank and I wanted to discuss what the likelihood of this happening is, the potential reasons behind the acquisitions and what it may mean for the bank’s customers.

JP Morgan have been rumoured to want to enter the UK retail banking space after finding success with credit cards and current accounts over in the US.
Lloyds has been on a decline with a lacklustre set of consumer finance products and a declining customer base.

Lloyds has a long history of growing through acquiring other banks and financial services companies and buying Starling Bank could give them the jolt needed for a fresh lease of life.

I’ll discuss my views on what this may mean for customers and Starling Bank’s products and offer some interesting insight on whether this acquisition is actually likely to happen.
