The Market

The number of bank branches in the UK has decreased but the demand for access is growing!

Physical branches have fallen in numbers from 20,000 to just 5,000 today, this leaves a massive market gap to be filled by our proven business model. The opportunity and market goes far beyond people’s access to cash, and the impact of the branch closures in the UK. This is a global problem and opportunity where our own innovation created in the UK can scale well beyond.
