Big banks like J.P. Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo have developed new mobile only banking apps in an effort to attract younger customers; “It’s about helping people start in banking and doing it in the way that fits their lifestyle,” said Steve Ellis, executive vice president and head of the Wells Fargo Innovation Group, to Business Insider; the banks are looking to get users at a younger age then keep them over the lifetime with additional product offerings; focusing on the consumer experience and new technology will help the banks to claw back some of the market that fintech companies have taken.
