Metro Bank Chairman Dismisses App-Only Banks

The founder of Metro Bank, a UK challenger bank, says app-only banks are “all hype” and sees them more as a provider of solutions and not banking; Vernon Hill told Business Insider in an interview that Metro Bank has been around for six years, has a market cap of $3.2 billion but only started to become profitable now; he went on to say: “No mobile-only bank can deliver anything I can’t deliver in the next minute and a half. What they’re offering you is a tool, not a solution. The customer wants the best of every channel and my job is to deliver them the best of every channel.”  Source
