South Africa’s First National Bank (FNB) is this month celebrating two years of mobile banking – an ambitious venture it launched on 26 July 2011.
The Johannesburg-based commercial bank, one of the country’s largest banks, started this revolution in the world of mobile banking when it launched the FNB Banking App. Since then, FNB said its App has gone from strength to strength, proven by the 500 000 active user mark that was reached in June 2013 and by a kaleidoscope of awards and nominations.
FNB is owned by First Rand Bank Limited, and also has operations in a couple of African countries.
Head of FNB Connect ISP and business operations Farren Roper reflects on the success of the FNB App in the mobile banking space, discusses the rationale behind mobile banking and shares some thoughts on how the bank will continue to drive innovation.
