The prospect of N26’s arrival into the UK startup market became a huge discussion topic across the fintech communities.
It’s arrival has proven to be a pretty disappointing event. The UK version was delivered as a very trimmed-down version compared to its international offerings. Continental account holders were explaining just how different the UK account was in terms of missing features.
The best that those of us who signed up could say was that the interface is ‘clean’. That’s a euphemism for ‘not much going on’!
Then, when N26 introduced the ability to create more than the initial (4?) ‘Spaces’ or pots, as a premium, paid, feature, the damage was largely done.
There’s certainly no real energy being injected into the UK N26 account. Ultimately disappointing and underwhelming…
