苏格兰皇家银行计划推出全新数字银行平台Bo

据了解,苏格兰皇家银行正在探索推出一个数字化独立消费者银行。

消息人士告诉天空新闻,按照苏格兰皇家银行前任运营主管Mark Bailie的计划,此前已经大约有100名工作人员了解到了这个项目。

这个新银行名叫“Bo”,据说是原因丹麦语中“生活”一词,与CYBG自己的数字分支银行B有着惊人的相似之处

Bo预计将在2019年正式面世,计划将100万Natwest客户迁移到新的移动平台。

苏格兰皇家银行发言人表示,数字银行只是目前正在为其客户探索的众多项目之一。

“作为银行对数字和创新的更广泛投资的一部分,苏格兰皇家银行正在开展一系列项目,以便在数字和开放式银行业时代更好地为客户服务。”

苏格兰皇家银行是上周遭遇严重技术故障的几家银行之一,该次事故导致数百万客户无法正常登陆自己的银行账户。

其实,英国的数字银行市场一向竞争激烈,先后涌现了Monzo、Revolut和Starling Bank等多家成功创企。而值得注意的是,这几家创企也正在参与竞购苏格兰皇家银行推出的总额7.75亿英镑的中小银行奖。

Royal Bank of Scotland is understood to be exploring the launch of a digital-only standalone consumer bank, which will go live under the name Bo.

Charging forward with RBS’ former operations chief Mark Bailie at the helm, roughly 100 staff are thought to have been briefed on the project’s name, sources told Sky News.

Bo is expected to launch to customers in 2019, with the aim of migrating 1m Natwest customers to the new mobile platform.

The name, which is believed to be a reference to the words meaning “to live” in Danish, bears a striking resemblance to CYBG’s own digital offshoot bank B.

An RBS spokesperson said the digital bank is just one of many projects it is currently exploring for its customers.

"As part of the bank's wider investment in digital and innovation, RBS is working on a range of projects to better serve our customers in the era of digital and open banking."

RBS was one of several banks to experience serious technical failures last week, which left millions of customers locked out of their bank accounts.

Bo is said to be pitched as a rival to a number of the UK's successful challenger banks, including Monzo, Revolut and Starling Bank, some of whom are currently involved in a bid to win a portion of the RBS' £775m banking prize for small to medium-sized business banking.
