Online challenger Atom Bank has launched today with a banking app and fixed term savings account.
The app is available to everyone who has pre-registered their interest through the Atom website, initially for iPhone and iPad users with an Android version to follow shortly.
Atom will also be offering secured lending to SME businesses, available through a number of specialist business intermediaries.
By the end of 2016, the bank says it will be offering fixed term savings, current accounts, overdrafts, debit and credit cards, instant access savings and residential mortgages, all serviced via the app.
Founder and chairman Anthony Thomson says: “The team has achieved something that simply hasn’t been done before– We believe we have built a bank in record time, and we’re not planning to stop here. It is not a simple task, and having an amazing team working hard to deliver the seemingly impossible has been crucial. We are all fully committed to continuing to innovate and deliver a transparent way of banking that turns the old world on its head.”
