With dynamic online platforms, innovative user experience, and faster delivery of offerings, Neobanks and Challenger banks are presenting themselves as more flexible and inclusive alternatives to traditional banks. Traditional banks, too, have recognised this fact and have already begun creating digital-only banking subsidiaries of their own.
