随着手机银行应用的普及,英国高街上遍布各家银行的景象可能随之一去不返。Simon Gompertz 报道手机银行应用的流行趋势。

In a small office behind London's King's Cross station a band of technology entrepreneurs is setting up a bank with 140 staff to offer what traditional banks need tens of thousands of people to provide. It is Tandem Bank, which will have an app and a small call centre.

Two hundred and fifty miles away in Durham, Atom Bank has been given a licence too. You won't even need a password to log into an account on its app - it'll recognise your face or your voice.

More start-up banks are set to follow. The Bank of England is talking to 26 candidates for licences - among them several budding app-only operations.

Despite evidence that people are fearful of switching banks, they are targeting millions of customers.
