2021 US Unbanked Report: The number of unbanked people is declining – ResearchAndMarkets.com


DUBLIN – (BUSINESS WIRE)–The “The problem of the unbanked United States is improving; are you part of the solution?” the report was added to ResearchAndMarkets.com from offer.

The efforts of fintechs and, to a lesser extent, traditional financial institutions to provide robust banking solutions to the unbanked population through prepaid cards help individuals securely store funds, receive deposits quickly, buying goods, paying bills and getting money at reasonable costs while reducing the overall unbanked population, new research explains.

The wave of neobanks and challenger banks that have emerged in recent years are playing a disproportionate role in helping to bank the currently unbanked. They join with other fintech players to deliver services with easy access, smart user apps and nearly free banking solutions, attracting millions of customers.

However, their durability is certainly in question. Currently, these companies operate at a loss or at low margins, and recent efforts to reduce debit card exchanges, the main source of income for neobanks, are creating a new threat.
