The Breakout FinTech Apps of 2019

In Brief:

  • Ranking by App Annie finds traditional banks are losing ground to FinTechs based on year-on-year growth of Apple and Android app downloads.
  • Nubank, Tez, the Cash App, PayPay and Monzo lead the global charge.
  • In the UK the only high street bank to make the list was Virgin Money.
