United States Neo-Bank Market Report 2021: Powerful New Entrants, Consolidation, Greater Personalization, New Regulations, Search for Profits

·2-min read

Dublin, May 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "A Maturing U.S. Neo-Bank Market: Growing Pains and Opportunities" report has been added to's offering.

A Maturing U.S. Neo-Bank Market: Growing Pains and Opportunities, discusses the neo-bank market in the U.S. and predicts what the future may hold for these companies.

Since their inception, neo-banks have attracted large customer bases and significant venture capital backing. Their approach to the business of banking is markedly different than traditional financial institutions, and some are rightfully wary of the threat they represent. Still, neo-banks themselves face numerous challenges - regulatory, financial, and otherwise.

"The future is uncertain for neo-banks. Powerful new entrants are seeking a share of the neo-bank market. Venmo - owned by PayPal - is increasingly pursuing banking functions, and Walmart has expressed its intent to expand into the market as well.

More important, neo-banks will need to find their own pathways to profitability. With their emphasis on limited fees and focus on bank accounts and debit products, neo-banks, for the most part, are not generating large profits," comments Laura Handly, market research analyst and author of the report.

Highlights of the report include:

  • Analysis of trends within the U.S. neo-bank market and discussion of the effect that the Covid-19 pandemic has had.
